I have read so many of other questions that the other users have, but i cant find this one. Ya'll say that pregnacy tests are accurate 10-14 days after the "risk"? what happens after the 14 days? the test is still accurate, right?

yes...10 to 14 days is just the average minimum wait before a test will become accurate

The test detects hormones created during pregnancy, and can't detect a very low amount of hormones, that's why it takes 10-14 days for a test to work. Anytime after that would be fine because there would only be more hormones in your body.
