Can You Take A Pregnancy Test After 12 Days?

Is this possible?

    You CAN take a test any time you want.  It probably isn't worth the money to take a test 12 days after having sex unless you are also 12 days late in starting your period.

    Pregnancy tests look for the HCG hormone in urine or blood. The level or hormone is not high enough the first couple of weeks after conception.  If you are taking a home urine test, wait until your period is a week late.  A blood test from a doctor can tell you earlier than that.
