A Blood test can detect a pregnancy as early as 7-12 days from conception, so a woman may not have even missed her period yet. The test is looking for the hormone HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) which is produced by the placenta of a pregnant woman.

Assuming you mean "first Month" the answer is yes. With a very sensitive pregnancy test some pregnancies can be detected as early as 3 weeks and 2 days; this is the first month of pregnancy.
