How Soon After Ovulation Can You Take A Blood Test
So my last menstrual started on may 10, 2013 and I had unprotected sex on the day after ovulation... Wen will be a good date to take an hCG blood test?
Too early to test: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. ...Read more

I stopped taking Accutane 9/4, had a blood test on 9/13 to check levels. It will take 2-8 days from today to get results and I ovulate within 2-4days. Is it safe to conceive after being off 2+ weeks?
Calendar: Keep a calendar of your cycle for a few months, if you are regular, you always ovulate 14 days BEFORE your period starts. Once you have a good idea when to predict your start date count backward 14 days and that should be the date you will ovulate. If you are a clockwork 28 days however, you can assume it is 14 days after the start of your next period ...Read more

Hi I may have miscalculated my ovulation by couple days but am almost 2 weeks I went and did my blood test today and the levels were at 89''?
If blood test says ovulated day 21 of 28 day cycle, when estimating the fa from an u/s wld I only subtract 7 dys from the ga instead of 14? Pls help!
No. Still use 14.: If the estimated gestational age is only from an ultrasound dating scan, that result already added in the 2 weeks from LMP to conception. That means the estimated conception date is always 2 weeks after the estimated last menstrual period date given by the ultrasound scan. The reason is: if the gestational age estimate is from the ultrasound scan alone, the calculations ignore the blood test. ...Read more

You may have tested too soon. You may wish to do a home pregnancy test 4-5 days after a missed period, using first morning urine and following the instructions carefully. Consult this site for signs of pregnancy.

I have 34 days cycle and get my progesterone checked around day 21, which shows ovulation. Should I go for a blood test on day 28? What's the differenc
It depends: If you have a regular 34 day cycle, you should ovulate on day 20 and if the progesterone on day 21 is consistent with ovulation, the progesterone on day 28 should still be consistent with ovulation. Testing again would only be helpful if for some reason a luteal phase defect was suspected. Talk with the doctor ordering the test about whether it needs to be repeated. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Unprotected sex on the 6th (neg) blood test 132&20 of Sept. Blood Test Oct 1Could I get a positive for either one? Ovulated on the 11th. Fertile 6-10
Pregnancy: I am confused by your info, so I will respond in general terms. A pregnancy test can be positive within 5-7 days of conception. If you had a period after unprotected sex, it is unlikely that you are pregnant. You are most fertile midcycle, within 5 days of ovulation. Many women in their 40's can conceive, but it is less likely and the risk of a child with Down's Syndrome after 40 is 1 in 50. ...Read more
I'm 14 days late and 3 days pass ovulation took hpt last Tuesday (negative) blood test Friday an today (negative) is it too early or what else could?
If a properly done pregnancy test was negative at more than 10 days after the due date of the period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. Consult this site for more information on this topic.

I had unprotected sex april 16th that day I took an ovulation test and it said I was at my peak, when can I get a blood test done and chances of preg?
Too Early to Tell: You very well may be pregnant but there is no testing this early. The easiest would be when you next miss your period. The obstetrician could do a blood test a bit sooner, but nothing would change between now and then. Patience is wise. ...Read more
About two weeks: The blood test should be most accurate about 14 days after ovulation. It's possible to get a positive blood or urine pregnancy test earlier than this. But it's not as reliable as the 'two week wait'. A HCG 'trigger shot' can give you a false positive pregnancy test if you test too early, as well. ...Read more
