I am in Britain so the answer may be different in other countries. Here in Britain there is a home pregnancy test which can give you a result 7-10 days after unprotected intercourse. It claims to be 97% accurate. At this early stage however the fertilised egg may not yet have implanted and the test may come up negative, or the woman may have a period and 'miscarry'. Before these ultrasensitive test she would never have known she was pregnant. Probably not best used unless it is really important to know.

A home pregnancy test can detect the pregnancy hormone starting around 10 days after conception.

A home pregnancy test is most likely to be accurate if it is positive meaning if you had a negative test you should be monitoring if you could be pregnant. You could have taken the home test too early to detect pregnancy. The best thing to do is to go to the doctor and get a test done there to rule out pregnancy.

A woman is generally a couple of weeks into her pregnancy before any real signs occur. Unfortunately, these early symptoms of pregnancy are much like that of an upcoming period. However, a home pregnancy test can detect the pregnancy hormone HCG as early as 4 days before your missed period -- depending upon which test you use. A blood sample can be taken by your doctor to detect pregnancy even sooner. A woman is generally a couple of weeks into her pregnancy before any real signs occur.

Most at home tests can detect a pregnancy as early as two weeks before a woman's missed period.

The very earliest a home pregnancy test can detect a pregnancy, is 6 DPO, or 6 days past ovulation. However, some babies will not implant until as late as 10-12 DPO, which in that case, a pregnancy test would not be able to detect a pregnancy until after the period is missed. For a pregnancy test to be able to detect a pregnancy, the baby has to have implanted into the uterine wall, so that hCG can be produced. HCG can be detected in the blood before it can be detected in the urine, so if you really want to know if you are pregnant, you might want to get a blood test done by your OB.

Home pregnancy tests can detect the HCG pregnancy hormone as soon as your first missed period. Doctors can detect the HCG hormone as early as 9 days past ovulation with blood work. It is usually safe for couples to share the news of their pregnancy with family and friends after the end of the first trimester, or 12 weeks gestation.

If you are 2 months pregnant, you should already be pretty sure your pregnant. After 6 weeks morning sickness and hormone variation take place. The answer is yes, a home pregnancy test will yield a positive reading if yorue pregnant, but you probably shouldn't need one.

no a blood pregnancy test can scan for lower levels of pregnancy hormones then a pregnancy test. a blood test can usually be taken after two weeks ovulatsion. depending on when you ovulated if you know i surgest if you wish to find out if your pregnant before your missed period that you use a pregnancy test whitch can detect the pregnancy hormones 6 days early. it will be best for you to take this test with the first pee in the morning.

Pregnancy tests for use at home and in health care settings can detect pregnancy that happened no sooner than 10 days ago.

When you get pregnant your body produces a pregnancy hormone that the HPT picks up. That is how it knows your pregnant. In early pregnancy the hormone is not always strong enough to be detected, that is why they suggest you wait until you miss you period to take the HPT. That is not to say it won't detect it, every pregnancy is different. If you want to know before you miss your period you should go to a doctor.

of course that can happen. because home pregnancy tests detect through the urine the hormones a pregnant woman is secreting. so if the amount of hormones is not enough then the test cannot detect them and turns negative. but this does not mean for sure that you are not pregnant. A negative home pregnancy test can be wrong a positive is always right. if you wait some days and assuming that you are late with your period your result will be more accurate.

You may have just caught the pregnancy really early. test again in a couple days.

Both home and health office tests normally detect pregnancy no sooner than 10 days after sex.

User Avatar

You can't. You can get reliable results on a home pregnancy test 14 to 16 days after having sex or you can see a Dr for a blood test that can detect pregnancy a few days sooner.

Home pregnancy tests detect hormone levels in your urine. Those hormones take a few days to show up. Home pregnancy tests are becoming much more sophisticated, and are able to detect pregnancy sooner and sooner.

It can be.If you feel that you may be pregnant you should take a home pregnancy test and/or see your dr.

Pregnancy tests, especially early-stage home tests, are never 100% reliable.

A pregnancy test measures the amount of HCG that is released into the body/bloodstream of a pregnant woman. Home pregnancy tests detect HCG, and that is how you can find out if you are pregnant. Only pregnant women produce enough of this hormone to be detected on pregnancy tests. Having your periods will not effect the result of the test. If you are pregnant, you are producing HCG, and the test will pick it up unless you are less than 4 weeks pregnant.

Usually if you miss your expected period, but now there are tests that can detect a pregnancy tests a little before your period is suppose to be.

At two weeks pregnant when my hcg was 30 all of the home pregnancy tests came up negative, a week later when my hcg was 1598 there appeared a very faint line.

Early pregnancy feels just like your period is going to start. if your home test was positive, then you are pregnant. ~pawsalmighty
