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.

A pregnancy test can be positive before you even have missed a period.

How soon after conception can a home pregnancy test can detect pregnancy?

Some of today's early pregnancy tests can test as soon as 10 days after ovulation (which is usually around the same day that you had sex, it could possibly be 2-3 after sex but never before).

What week do you know you are pregnant?

OBGYNs typically don't do pregnancy tests until your period is 2 weeks late. This is because many pregnancies do not last past the 1st week or so, and OBGYNs treat viable pregnancies. Before the availability of home pregnancy tests, most women did not know they had an early miscarriage. With home pregnancy tests, you can test as soon as it is time for your period. This is because once the egg is fertilized and implants into the uterine lining, there is a new hormone released. The pregnancy test shows if that hormone is present. Without that hormone being present, the uterine lining sheds and you have your period. Thus, you can know you are pregnant as soon as you expect your period.
