About 2 -12 days.: From what i know about this, you're supposed to ovulate about 36 hours after you take gthis with a concomitant rise in temperature. If you engage in intercourse, etc. You should first take your pregnancy test about 2-10 days after this, especially if you don't have your period. If the result is not clear you can also take the test after that.
