It will almost certainly show a negative result, unless pregnancy has occurred earlier. Pregnancy tests detect a substance (beta-HCG) that is produced when the fertilised egg implants in the uterus. The level of this substance in the urine reaches detectable levels only about 2 weeks after fertilisation. Commonly used pregnancy tests show a positive result only about 4 weeks after fertilisation. That would be about 6 weeks from the date of your last period. So, if you were to use a urine pregnancy test 3 days after having sex, it will most probably show a negative result.
