When, after the sexual activity, do the earliest signs of pregnancy usually occur?

A pregnancy test can be taken as early as 10-14 days after a pregnancy risk. A pregnancy test is the only accurate, reliable "sign" of pregnancy early on.

So, if you've had a pregnancy risk and worry you may be pregnant, a pregnancy test is the best way to actually know.

Most pregnancy "symptoms" are also symptoms of much more common ailments, like stomach bugs, indigestion, stress, etc. so are really unreliable to try and look for.

Okay, I took the pregnancy Test.. but I didn't understand the labelling on it, it said that if the colour reached the "T Area", then I'm pregnant. However, I waited for 9 minutes then the result I got was a vertical colouring line then a horizontal line with the same colour of a darker shade, is this positive or negative? The test said the results should show in 3 - 15 minutes and that it would last for 30 minutes. Did I wait long enough?

I can't quite tell you from over here what that pregnancy test meant, but if it was hard for you to read, I suggest you get a second test of a different brand. If you want to be extra-sure, you can even get tests now that give you a digital result where it'll tell you in words whether or not you're pregnant.

If you can't find any other brands, you can always make an appointment with your gyno to get a test done there.

Also, many tests have a 1-800 number you can call if you have questions, so check the inserts that came with your test for that, too, if you want to call them to clarify your results.
