Hello, I am new at this so if I make a mistake please let me know.

O.K. my question is that my soon-to-be-husband and I are planning on having a child and we are try as well, you see i figured out that I was ovulating on the 11th of this month and we had unprotected sex on the ninth the eleventh and the thirteenth....when should I take a pregnancy test, I have already bought an Equate pregnancy test with two tests in it. When should I take one or both test?

Any help would be apprectiated. Thank You!

Take it a week after your missed period.

One doesn't have to wait until a week after a missed period to take a test.

You can either take the test the first day of your missed period OR 10-14 days after the last time you had sex, whichever comes first.
