Can a home pregnancy test be positive 3 days after conception?

In brief: 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.
