In extrememly early pregnancies, as the pregnancy hormone is still being produced, taking the pregnancy test in the morning after you wake up is slightly more accurate as the urine is more concentrated.

How early can a pregnancy test detect pregnancy?

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.

What type of pregnancy test is best to take?

One that says that it is for early detection or says that it is sensitive. The number you should look for on the package is 20mlU/mL. This means that it can detect a very low amount of hCG in your urine. Check out this site for all your home pregnancy test questions:

How could a pregnancy test be positive when two weeks ago you had a pregnancy test and a vaginal sono done and they were negative?

A vaginal sonogram can not detect pregnancy until you are 6-7 weeks into the pregnancy. A urine pregnancy test has difficulty detecting a low amount of HCG during early pregnancy & because of this it is always best to perform a urine pregnancy test 3-4 weeks after you had unprotected sex. Congratulations on your pregnancy & see your doctor for confirmation.

How many weeks does it take to know that your pregnant?

This will generally depend on the test that is used to detect a pregnancy. Blood tests are more accurate in that they can detect a pregnancy earlier. As soon as two weeks after a missed period, blood tests can detect levels of Hcg (the hormone pregnant females produce). Urine pregnancy tests generally do not detect a pregnancy before the 6th week because sometimes it takes that long for Hcg levels to rise to the point where a urine test will be sensitive enough to detect it.
