Assuming you had intercourse during ovulation then the soonest you could test positive would be 7 days. However, it's almost impossible to get a result that early. It takes 6 - 12 days for the fertilized egg to travel down the fallopian tubes and implant in the uterus. Your body doesn't start producing hCG (the pregnancy hormone) until implantation has occured. Keeping this in mind you will get more accurate results if you wait 2 weeks after intercourse to test.

You can take a pregnancy test 14 days after sex.

If you are referring to when you can detect hcg levels during pregnancy, you should wait 14 days after intercourse to get an accurate test.

Most tests these days will detect the hormone in 9 to 10 days.

You should wait fourteen days after intercourse or the day of your expected period.

10 days for blood test and 14 days for Home pregnancy test. Well it could vary but this is the most likely when pregnancy can be detected. After you missed your period the home pregnancy SHOULD work if you were pregnant. Good luck.

Possible but not accurate. Too soon. Try after you miss your first period.

Usually a week before your missed period.

2weeks before your missed period

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

It is more accurate to perform a pregnancy test 3 weeks after intercourse.

You can do a blood test which can detect pregnancy as soon as a week after fertilization. Home tests are usually not as accurate until 4 days before your period is due but some are more sensitive and can detect pg earlier. So to answer the question you can do a any of them as soon as you are late.

Depending on the lab and the pregnancy, it can sometimes pick it up 10 days after conception.

Pregnancy and illness are easily differentiated by a urine pregnancy test. A urine pregnancy test will detect pregnancy hormone as soon as 10-12 days after conception.

User Avatar

Considering home pregnancy tests can detect it up to five days before your missed period, you can take one as soon as you realize you're late.

You can get a positive result on a home pregnancy test as soon as 8 days past ovulation. However if you test that early you are more likely to get a negative even if you are pregnant. It is best to wait until the day you miss your period to have the best chance of getting a correct reading.

You should take a pregnancy test shortly after your missed period. That is when a home pregnancy test is most effective. Although I have heard you can do a blood test at the doctor as soon as 2 weeks before your missed period.

No. Home pregnancy tests detect the hormone hCG, not byproducts of infection. Infections do not cause the hormones to be released. It is best to get the pregnancy confirmed by a doctor and have the UTI treated as soon as possible.

With a Quantitative beta hcg blood test you can have this performed 7 days after intercourse to determine pregnancy. With a urine pregnancy test, you can perform this 3 weeks after intercourse.

User Avatar

Usually 8 days after intercourse is the soonest that you can accurately tell if you are pregnant or not.

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.
