it came out positive but i had sex the night before?

I took a pregnancy test of course the dollar one's which seem to work for me for my first pregnancy two years ago but had a missed carriage. So i took a test cause i am like 5 days late but i took the test in the morning and it came out positive but i had sex the night before that so does that have anything to do with my pregnancy test maybe being confused because i had sex before doing the test or can i be can the test be right or maybe i was not suppose to have sex when i was going to take it cause that might confuse thing or does that have nothing to do with this?

Welcome to ehealthforum

Urine test being positive usually means that conception is there and they rarely give false positive results.The test result cannot be affected by intercourse as it detects the hormone level in the urine sample.If you had intercourse in the past then it seem syou are pregnant.
You can get a repeat test done after few days and visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation.
Take care!
