    The Doctors office and Pregnancy Tests

    My last period was two weeks ago and the last time I had sex was a week ago. It was protected. If I went to the Doctors office would they be able to take a urine sample and be able to know if I was pregnant or not at this time?

    A week is a bit on the short side. It takes 6-10 days fora fertilized egg to implant and for your body to start producing the hormone that pregnancy tests detect. FYI, store bought pregnancy tests are as sensitive (and often more) than a doctor's office urine test. Why go to the expense if you can get the same results at home?

    Also, why do you think you might be pregnant if you had protected sex? Just curious...
