I have a friend who is in dire need of these resources but she doesn't have a comp so i'll ask for her.

She is worried because she had a massive unprotected risk about a week ago and she took two preg tests today one read neg the other read pos so is there and reason why a test would read positive seven days after the risk other than the fact that she is pregnant?

From what i understand of it, it is pretty rare to have a false positive, so it sounds like your friend is pregnant. She needs to make an appointment with her doctor for confirmation and to discuss her options.

Nope, depending on where she was in her cycle, conception could have occured and her body could have produced enough of the pregnancy hormones for it to be detected by a test within 7 days.

She should probably get into see a doctor or gynecologist soon and have them do a blood test to confirm; there she can also discuss her options for the pregnancy and for pre-natal care if she chooses to procede with the pregnancy.
