  • RE: How soon can a women have a positive pregnancy test after sex

    The full answer is long. Sperm can live in the woman's body for up to around 7 days. Once she ovulates, the egg has about 24 hours to join with sperm or it basically dies. So the date of sex is less important than the date of ovulation. You can generally get a positive test by about 10 days after ovulation. So if she ovulated on the 5th or 6th, that timeline would absolutely work. If she does not know for certain when she ovulated (and no, not every woman's cycle is the "standard" ovulate on CD 14, 28-day cycle) and you are having paternity questions, you'll both have to wait until her first ultrasound that dates the pregnancy to narrow down the date of conception. Note that pregnancy is counted in weeks with the two weeks prior to ovulation included in the count. So if a woman is exactly 6 weeks pregnant, she ovulated about four weeks prior, give or take a couple days because dating is not necessarily 100% exact. If you still have paternity questions, you'll just have to wait until you can do a paternity test. In the meantime, be decent but smart so that you're in the best possible position no matter how the paternity test turns out.

        Thank you, much more helpful. Actually had sex on the sixth.... Also I did not have it orgasm so not sure if that reduces the chances of you being a father? I know there is a slight possibility with precum

        So you had sex on Oct 6th. And how do you make sure she can be pregnant? Did she tell you?
      • It's possible with precum but not probable. Even couples who are actively trying to conceive who are having sex multiple times during the fertile window only have about a 20% chance of pregnancy each cycle. If there was no full ejaculation, it's not out of the realm of possibilities but I'd be skeptical.

        It is a mess.. she is my neighbor. We have met a few times over the past 3 years, and then we matched on a dating site where she told her and her boyfriend broke up. One night after drinks we ended up meeting. I knew I shouldn’t but she kept telling me how much of crash she had in me. Once she told me she was pregnant she has pulled away and now is not texting anymore. Huge mess!!!!
