Couldn't find what you looking for?


my girlfriend and i just did the home insemination thing. i am ovulating and fertile, so im hoping it works. but i am really excited so i need to know how soon i can start taking a test? ive heard that you can test positive as soon as 7 days after conception and others say that you have to wait 3 weeks.  


Hi Wanna,

I'd suggest you wait until your period is due.

Testing early, false negatives are common.  False positives are rare.  You may notice implantation bleeding the week before you're due.

It takes time for hCG to build up to a level that can be detected.  Even then, sometimes the test doesn't detect it then.  Use your first morning urine when you do test, it is more concentrated so more likely to provide an earlier result.

good luck!
