    Pregnancy Question (From a Male!)
    An_190684 posted:
    Hello WebMD! Two weeks ago I saw an old friend and the night I was there we were about to have intercourse. We barely touched and I back down due to personal reasons. The other day I was told that she was 2 weeks pregnant. Supposedly she has seen a doctor and it was confirmed. What I want to know is that possible to tell if a woman is pregnant with in the first 2 weeks?
    georgiagail responded:
    Highly unlikely, although, in theory, possible. Generally it takes about 5 days for a fertilized egg to travel down the fallopian tubes (where conception occurs) and implant into the uterus. Once implantation occurs the body begins to release the hormone that is tested for in home pregnancy tests.

    Is she claiming you are the father? If so, what does "barely touched" in terms of sexual contact mean?

    phoenixfire76 responded:
    I would be suspicious, the way pregnancy is counted is from the woman's last mensural period. So by the time a woman misses her period and takes a test she is usually 4-5 weeks pregnant. 2 weeks pregnant is about the time a woman conceives. It could be that the person you heard it from doesn't know this and may have told you it's been 2 weeks after a missed period and therefor they think that makes her 2 weeks pregnant but actually she would be 6 weeks pregnant. So when you saw her 2 weeks ago she would have already have been pregnant, though may have not known it. If she is trying to pin in on you I would make sure you get a DNA test when the baby is born (if she keeps it) before you sign/agree to anything concerning any kind of monetary support.

    Best of Luck.
