Hi Welcome to Health Care Magic......
You can confirm your pregnancy by as early as 15 days. If you have missed your period then with a week of your missed date you can confirm your pregnancy.
There are two commonly done tests 1) a qualitative test - using a pregnancy kit available at medical outlets , just add a drop to two of your urine on to the designated spot on the slide and you can read the results yourself. 2) A quantitative test which is more realiable is done at hospital for beta -hCG. A transvigal Ultrasonography also establishes the diagnosis..
Hope your question was answered..

Postinor is said to work better within the first 12 hours after intercourse, but no later than 72 hours. I did take one 7 to 8 hours after we had intercourse. Something went wrong so I had to take it. It was my first time taking it. How do I know if it will work ? After I took the pill , the following day, I felt nauseous the whole day, which is a side effect from the pill I m guessing. What are the chances that I might be pregnant , and how long do these side effects last ? I m super worried.

I gave my boyfriend a hanjob. He did not cum. But maybe a drop, I don t know. According to me and him, there was not even a drop. It was the 4th day of my period. After a few hours I went to pee. I washed my private parts there with unwashed hands. I had not washed my hands after touching my boyfriend. Can I be pregnant? I did not insert the fingers in. Also, how long do the sperm live on the hands? Am I safe?
