How long does it take to find out you're pregnant?

A pregnancy test will give an accurate result 3 weeks after sex. 14 weeks after intercourse is the most accurate date for determining pregnancy with a home pregnancy test.

How soon can a home pregnancy test detect pregnancy after intercourse?

Assuming you had intercourse during ovulation then the soonest you could test positive would be 7 days. However, it's almost impossible to get a result that early. It takes 6 - 12 days for the fertilized egg to travel down the fallopian tubes and implant in the uterus. Your body doesn't start producing hCG (the pregnancy hormone) until implantation has occured. Keeping this in mind you will get more accurate results if you wait 2 weeks after intercourse to test.
