I took a pregnancy test 13 days after sex will it be accurate? if not, how long should i wait to re-test?

I had sex 8 days before my period was due, didnt get a period, it has been 5 days since my period was due. I am on the implant as well.

Thanks!

A test should be accurate 13 days after a risk. You can always retest again in a week or so to be sure.

How long have you had the implant? It is a highly effective form of birth control, so it's really unlikely that you've had a pregnancy risk. Keep in mind as well that missed/late/irregular periods are a very common side effect of Implanon, which is most likely what's going on here.

Ok good [Smile] the pregnancy test was an ultra one, so it was a sensitive one. Yeah I know, I have had the implant two weeks before the sex, so i should be protected, the test was negative, so im going to re-test in a week, see what happens, then again a week after that if it was negative the 2nd time. Thankyou!
