  4. Hello, I was just wondering, how soon can you test with your second pregnancy and get a positive result? I have a 9 month old. I just had sex with my bf on the 1st a few days after my period ended could I be pregnant? It was unprotected sex.

Answer: Hi, Conception is possible anytime when a couple have unprotected sex and are within a fertile age group. However, and you'd know this already I'm sure, there are particular days in a woman's cycle when conception is more likely. The best and most accurate time to test for pregnancy is when the period is due, on the day and with the first urine of the morning when, if present, pregnancy hormone is generally at its most concentrated. But with current day home pregnancy testing kits they tend to be so incredible sensitive that if even the slightest hint of pregnancy hormone is present it will be detected. The other option is that you could go to your GP and request a pregnancy blood test as this will detect pregnancy hormones at an early stage as well. Hope that helps. Best Jane
