Dear Bontle,
No a pregnancy would not show on a home pregnancy test 3 days after intercourse - more like 10 days after intercourse. You can take emergency contraception up to 3 days after intercourse but remember that it is still not as effective as regular contraception as it reduces your chance to become pregnant with only 75-80%.
