Hello Scarleteen first some information....I last had my period on the 23rd of February and my cycle is normally a 28 day cycle counting from the first day of my period to the first day of my next period....
Me and my partner had unprotected sex on the 6th of March exactly 12 days after my period...I had posted earlier on this site....unprotected but no ejaculation...My period is due today ( 22nd of March) and I took a digital pregnancy test.....I have no symptoms of pregnancy like sore breasts/nausea but neverthess I wanted to test...It showed "Not pregnant".....Can I assume this result to be fairly accurate or could there be a margin of error

Pregnancy tests can be considered to be accurate 14 or more days after the sexual activity that could lead to pregnancy occurred.
If you don't get your period in the next few days, it would be sound to test again, but for now you can consider those results accurate.
Also, just so you know, symptoms people associate with pregnancy rarely appear immediately, which is why they're not a good indicator of whether someone is pregnant or not and why a test is really the only way to tell.
