Early pregnancy test?
How early can one do a pregnancy test? I have read you can do one 6 days after you've had intercourse. Do you need to specifically ask for an 'early pregnancy test' or will the one they give you be accurate enough. Pls advise. Thanks

The blood pregnancy test can be positive as early as three days before your expected period. With urine pregnancy tests, wait till you have missed a period.
