In a normal 28 day period cycle the chance to get pregnant goes like this: Day one is considered the first day of your period. From that day count up to day 14. Day 14 is the day you should be ovulating give or take a day based on individuality. This is the time you want to be having sex at least every other day. From day 14 you count 7 more days=day 21 and this is about the time the egg with implant into your uterus. Once the egg has successfully implanted your body will start to produce a hormone called HCG. This is the hormone that is detected in home pregnancy tests to tell you that you are pregnant. However, when your body starts to produce this hormone it is a very low amount but doubles in number about every other day. Dependant upon the sensitivity of the pregnancy test determines if it is sensitive enough to detect the HCG hormone in your body. Your best chance to test is 7 days from day 21 so that your body has time to get a high enough amount of the HCG to be detected by a pregnancy test. If you test too early you may still be pregnant but it will not be enough HCG for the pregnancy test to detect. So day 28 is the best day to test. If you are really impatient it is possible to detect ANY amount of HCG with a blood test called Quantitative HCG. (Qualitative HCG is another test but only tests the yes/no of pregnancy, the previous test detects the actual amount of HCG even to it being only 1) The only problem with this blood test is that a doctor must order it and he is unlikely to unless their is a possible problem that means the test is necessary. This would be in women who have had a previous ectopic pregnancy because the exact levels are important to make sure they continue rising appropriately. So, basically you can start checking with pregnancy tests anywhere after day 21 from your last period but to have a very accurate result you need to wait until day 28 unless you have plenty of money to spend on pregnancy test to test everyday!LOL I hope this helped! If not, look up "when HGC levels develop in pregnant women".
