How accurate are readings 10-14 days after sex? Everyone I know says you have to wait a week after your period. I'm currently at 14 days past the first encounter, and 10 from the last encounter that I am worried about.

I'm 8 days away from my period.

You can test 10-14 days after a risk, or the first day of a missed period, whichever comes first. If you get a negative result but your period doesn't arrive when it should, it's a good idea to test again.
