I'm curious, after intercourse, how long should a person wait to take a pregnancy test?

If you don't want to waste your money on tests taken too early, wait at least two weeks.

Some tests you can take 5 days before your missed period, but I would just wait until you're due for your period.

You might get a positive as soon as 10 days after intercourse, but if you want to be fairly certain of the result, positive or negative, wait until 2 days after your period is due or 16 days after intercourse, whichever comes later. Do the test with the first urine in the morning after not drinking a lot the evening before, so it is most concentrated.

Thanks for the advice everyone! The whole missed period thing isn't going to work for me (that's a whole 'nother story); hence, the reason I asked the question.
