How soon can you get a positive pregnancy test after conception?

10 - 14days: With sensitive quantitative blood tests, the test can start to be positive at 10 days and always by 14days after conception. The problem is knowing when conception is in most cases. Urine tests start showing positive at 13-14days and most would be positive at 18days.

Can you take a pregnancy test long after conception? Will you still get a positive result?

Can you take a pregnancy test long after conception? Will you still get a positive result?

10 -14 days: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection.

No: A home pregnancy test that detected HCG in the urine can be positive in about 2-3 weeks. But if you have a blood test drawn, they are positive much earlier -- although usually only after several days. So -- no!

Can you get a positive pregnancy test 2 weeks after sex?

Can you get a positive pregnancy test 2 weeks after sex?

Yes.... but: That is the general limit of when it starts to be positive and you'd have to conceive right about the time of intercourse (t would be 2 weeks gestation; tests often begin to be positive at that point) and pretty reliably positive 1-2 weeks after than.
