I'd wait 14 or more days. That will give you time to have started your period. You can only get pregnant during ovulation and that usually occurs about 14 days before your period. If you get a negative or confusing result, wait another week and take another one. If you still get a negative or confusing result, wait a week and take another test. If you haven't gotten a positive result by then, you aren't pregnant. If you still haven't started your period after that long or all the results are unclear, you should talk to a doctor or call planned parenthood. They should be in your phone book. They will beable to answer your questions better and get you an appointment if you need to see a doctor.

Check with your OB doc, but I believe it is a 2 week waiting period.

no it just meant that when you had sex it pushed the cycle back by a few days it should show up soon don't worry about it.

It is more accurate to perform a pregnancy test 3 weeks after intercourse.
