GH, there's no point in testing until your period shows up late or light, even if you have signs already. Signs don't usually show until about a week after sex and a week before your expected period.

Welcome to e health forum.

FYI, Pregnancy can occur, only when ejaculation occurs within the vagina, and when the woman is within the fertile period of your cycle. This period is from day 12 to day 16 of a 28 day menstrual cycle.

The possible symptoms that are common in pregnancy include - Missed periods, Breast tenderness, Nausea in the early morning, Vaginal discharge from pinkish white to brownish, Spotting, Fatigue and Increased urge to urinate.

Diagnosis of pregnancy cannot be done just based on the signs and symptoms within a few days of conception.

The best and easy way to confirm if you are pregnant would be to do a urine pregnancy test at home.

Home pregnancy urine tests are very sensitive and are around 97% accurate when done correctly. Such tests can be done at least 1 day after you have missed your monthly period (which otherwise where normally regular). If it is negative, a repeat test after 7 days of missing the period, would definitely be confirmatory.

The other option would be to do the tests in the hospital or a laboratory, where blood levels of HCG hormone can be estimated to know the proper diagnosis.

In case of any doubts, consulting your OBGYN Doctor would also be recommended who can provide you clear information if you are pregnant or not.
