Will a blood test or urine test show you are pregnant earlier and how soon are they reliable?

A urine test will show results after you have missed your period. Some can show results the day of your period. A blood test will show results a lot sooner. I don't know when, but probably the day of or after you conceived. Depending on the urine test used, the more sensitive ones on the market now can detect a low as 15IUL of HCG, these HPT's are sold mostly on the Internet, First Response Early and Clear Blue Easy Early are also accurate in lower concentrations but the HCG levels must be 25 IUL's, First Response may claim as low as 20 IUL but not sure. The blood test can be accurate as much as 6 days after implantation. The urine tests vary, the early tests say 4 days before expected period, but you can still get false -'s if you don't have enough of the hcg hormone.

They do a blood or urine test to find the hormones that indicate you are pregnant

There are two types of pregnancy tests available though your Dr, blood and urine. Blood tests can show positive 8-10 days past ovulation and urine tests are most reliable 14-16 days past ovulation.
