Have you had a pregancy risk? If so, then being pregnant is always a possibility.

(But given how long you've been around the site, I certainly hope that risk wasn't from unprotected sex, since I know you know better by now.)

The soonest one can take a pregnancy test and get accurate results is ten days after the incident in question, or after your first missed or skipped period, whichever is latest.
