Each month, hormones from the pituitary gland in the brain stimulate a womans ovaries to release an egg. This process, known as ovulation, usually occurs around the 14th day of a womans menstrual cycle. Women cease ovulating after reaching menopause. After the egg is released, it travels down the fallopian tube toward the uterus. When sperm produced from a male joins and penetrates the egg, fertilization occurs.

A womans egg can survive for approximately 24 hours and a sperm can live in the reproductive tract for several days. Once fertilized, the egg (zygote) continues to travel through the fallopian tube until it reaches the uterus two to four days later. It then implants itself into the wall of the uterus (womb) and begins to develop.

The first trimester of pregnancy consists of weeks zero (the womans last menstrual period before fertilization occurred) to 12. During this time, a womans body starts adjusting to the developing embryo and begins to provide it with nourishment. ...more

Most doctors recommend that you wait until the first day of your missed period before taking a home pregnancy test. This is usually around two weeks after conception. However, some tests are more sensitive than others and can be taken earlier. If you follow all instructions religiously and interpret the results correctly, home pregnancy tests are 97% accurate. A blood test administered by your doctor is more sensitive than the early home tests and can be taken between seven and twelve days after you conceive.

If a woman is pregnant, the amount of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in her system should be around 25 mIU at 10 dpo (days past ovulation), 50 mIU at 12 dpo, 100 mIU at around two weeks dpo. Blood tests can determine pregnancy as low as between 5 to 10 mIU/hCG, though with levels of 5 mIU, a confirmed determination of pregnancy cannot be made without risking a "false positive" because as low levels Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) can be present in the body without pregna ...more

Shortly after the fertilized egg attaches to your uterine lining, your body begins to produce the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). Home pregnancy tests available without a prescription at most grocery stores and drugstores can reliably detect this hormone in your urine one week after a missed period. A more sensitive blood test to detect HCG can be done earlier in the doctor's clinic.

Many home pregnancy tests can be taken as early as the first day of a missed period. For the most accurate results, it's best to wait until one week after a missed period.

Many home pregnancy tests claim to be 99 percent accurate on the day you miss your period. Although research suggests that most home pregnancy tests don't consistently spot pregnancy this early, the tests are considered reliable when used according to package instructions one week after a missed period. If you need to know earlier, ask your doctor about a blood test.

Rarely, it's possible to get a positive result from a ...more

May be around 10 - 12 days, but make it sure with the help of your doctor as he/she will know better about you and your health for pregnancy confirmation
