Practically after how many days of missed period one can detect pregnancy in home pregnancy test ?
If conception occurred, would a pregnancy test show positive 1-2 days after ovulation? Can ovulation occur 1-2 days before expected period?
Probably not: In a natural cycle, a pregnancy test should turn positive only about 10-12 days after ovulation, at earliest! (the exception is that in a medicated cycle, if you use an ovulation-triggering medication such as ovidrel/hcg, you can get a "false-positive" around the time of ovulation. In a healthy cycle, the "luteal phase" (time from ovulation to the next period) should be at least 10-12 days. ...Read more
Would early ovulation causing early conception show in the gestational age since not all woman ovulate 14 days after lmp?
Yes, no, and maybe: Yes, if she knows how to adjust her counting based on the length of her cycles or on which day she usually ovulates. Yes, if using an ultrasound to do the dating, such as an 8-11 week ultrasound scan. No, if all she uses for counting is the first day of her last menstrual period and her periods are much longer or much shorter than 28 days. And, maybe it matters little, as all dates are estimates. ...Read more

Can longer implantation time affect dating ultrasounds in early pregnancy?Can it affect growth estimates in early pregnancy and date you behind?
"Dating" a fetus: The "dating" refers to the gestational age of the developing fetus not a social romantic encounter. Ultrasounds are only accurate plus or minus 2 weeks gestation unless done serially.(more than one). 'That is why OB MD's use multiple parameters to date pregnancies including LMP(last period), pelvic exam uterine size, etc. "Dating" is an inexact science in life and medicine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Only if ovulation...: If ovulation happened about 7-10 days later than expected, an embryo could implant 5 days after a missed period. Otherwise, if ovulation happened at the usual expected time, the embryo should implant a few days before the regular expected menstrual period (which would then be missed, of course). ...Read more
Missed periods by 6 days & test gave positive result of pregnancy.But experiencing candidiasis. Any problem to baby in this early stage of pregnancy?
Two main reasons: If a pregnancy has accurate dating from early sonogram which is in agreement with lmp (last menstrual period) and one sees a greater than 2 week lag in growth from the expected, it could signal iugr (intrauterine growth restriction). This may be due to a placental problem or a genetic/developmental problem. Close monitoring of growth, amniotic fluid, and nst (nonstress test) is indicated. ...Read more

Possibility of conceiving late in luteal phase? (1-2 days before next expected period or day of expected period) too late in cycle?

Got negative pregnant test 3 weeks after lmp, a week later tested positive. Would this be accurate or late ovulation? Time of conception unknown.
No: That would be much too soon, if we define conception as the moment the sperm meets the egg, leading to successful implantation of the embryo in the uterus. The home pregnancy test detects HCG in the urine, which means the HCG is coming from the location of the implanted embryo in the uterus. This means test is positive some time after implantation. ...Read more
