    Default How soon will a preggo test show positive


    How soon after conception can you take a home pregnancy test and it show positive? The reason I am asking is because my co-worker got married on June 2nd and they were going to try to conceive on the wedding night (They used condoms up to that point) and she said she just felt strange so she took a pregnancy test this morning and it came out positive. All my other co-workers swear that she must have been pregnant before the wedding and this bothers her. I told her that home pregnancy tests have really evolved and some can detect even as early as 1 week past ovulation. My co-workers disagree. What do you think? She says she doesn't "feel" pregnant, but she took the test because she was curious, not because she thought she was (she was impatient).

    HiLizzard, They say it can be shown 1 week after ovulation or 4 days before your next period. I am also trying to conceive and check frequently. She is loucky if she wanted to and has. I wish I was pregnant too. Oh well, we are having fun trying.

    I did some internet research on this subject a while back, I think 17 days after the sex act that caused conception is the earliest time it'll show. Which makes a truth-teller of your coworker!

    Slightly off-topic: that is some RUDE, uncalled-for gossip from your other coworkers. If I were in her boots, I'd be chatting up HR about it real quick.

    But human expectation is that love remains the same,
    And when it doesn’t, we point our fingers and blame.

    Just to clarify, we were in an open discussion about it at the time when she told us and it was more of a "maybe you were pregnant before the wedding" and she just looked like "oh...I hope not" (not that it matters anymore, but its important to some people). It's not really "gossip" like what you're thinking.

    Technically, she was 2 days late of her period and she has a normal 40 day cycle, so I think in her case, she might know that soon. IDK, I was just curious

    Maybe this has something to do with the old saying: "The first one can come anytime; after that, it takes nine months."
