Question How soon after conception will a pregnancy test show a positive result?

I had sex the day that I ovulated - last Sunday. I am not due for my period for another week and a half. My partner and I are desperately trying for a baby. I was reading on the internet earlier that an ovulation test - if done at the right time, can be used as a pregnancy test. Does anyone know if this is true. If this is right, the test that I did earlier shows that I could be pregnant, as there were 2 lines on the test, just like on a pregnancy test. I don't want to get my hopes up, but if anyone knows of this happening could they please let me know.
Thanks and have a great day.

I took the early first response test 1 week after I conceived & it was a very faint line. It got darker every 2 days. Good Luck!

Re: How soon after conception will a pregnancy test show a positive result?

It takes 10-14 days after the egg is fertilized to implant and for your body to start producing the HCG hormone that the pregnancy tests detect. That is why most tests are accurate the day your period is due (ie: 14 days after ovulation). First Response Early Result works up to 4 days before your period is due, but it is only 66% accurate at that time, meaning it may give false negatives. They don't give false positives, so if you do test early and get a positive result, you can pretty much rely on it. You do, however, need to give yur body some time for the egg to implant or you will be wasting your money.

Re: How soon after conception will a pregnancy test show a positive result?

I know how impaient you can feel! i just couldnt wait!! i did tests 1-2 days before my period and they all came up positive!

Did you have sex just on the day of ovulation? as it would be best to have sex a day or 2 before that date as well as the sperm likes time to get used to the environment as it may not work otherwise!

Good luck anyway! hope u get what u want
