A 35-year-old member asked:
I was just wondering when are the hormone levels high enough for a pregnancy to be detected through a blood test?

Early: It is sometimes possible to detect by blood testing within a week of ovulation, home pregnancy is usually positive days later, but most often you wait until a week after your missed period before testing.
