A PREGNANCY TEST IS ACCURATE 14 DAYS AFTER SEX.

IF it has been 14 days after sex, and it is negative, then you ARE NOT PREGNANT!

The mini pill does not completely prevent ovulation. It is progesterone only, so it prevents pregnancy by thickening your cervical mucous and making it a harsh environment for sperm to travel in.

You should wait at least 14 days before taking a pregnancy test, and then take it with your first morning urine. If it is negative and you have not had your period yet and think you still might be pregnant, wait a few days and test again. A pregnancy test isn't always accurate by 14 days. Some women are unsure of exactly when they became pregnant (for example, sperm lives in the body for 5 days so a women might think got pregnant on that one day, but perhaps she doesn't ovulate for another 4 days and the sperm meets up with the egg then. it is four days later than she thought). Also, different bodies can produce the hormone at different rates. By 14 days it usually is pretty accurate, but not always.
