Would having a blood test 6 days after ovulation detect a pregnancy or would it be too early to detect?

It would probably be too early. I believe the fertilized egg doesn't implant until about two weeks after ovulation. And you don't produce the hormone until after the egg implants.

If you are pregnant, you would not be ovulating. However, sometimes an ovulation test can be used to detect pregnancy. The test line must be darker than the control line.

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.

If you are having light pink dis charge 10 days after ovulation, it is usually a sign that the egg is implanting itself to the wall.

No, a blood test for pregnancy would not detect HIV. Ask for the HIV test by name.
