A 18-year-old female asked:

is it likely to get a positive blood test for pregnancy at 8 dpo?

Patience.: A blood test isn't needed. There's no need to rush. A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed.
