In brief: Yes

If you had unprotected sex during ovulation, the pregnancy tests are getting more and more sensitive, and you certainly may have enough b-hcg in your system to be detected in a pregnancy test.

In brief: Only blood

While a blood test may be positive that quickly, a urine test is only typically accurate starting a day or two before your period is due.
Why not wait an extra week and start with a cheaper home pregnancy test.

In brief: Yes

Blood pregnancy tests can be positive 8 days post ovulation but it is really early and generally will not be positive yet.
Urine pregnancy tests will be of little value. Anxious?
