can't wait

Hi there

does anybody know when a blood test can be taken, some woman cant wait to miss a period for some sign of pregnancy, i know im one of them, i ovulated 11/6 - 15/6, what i can notice now is, my boobs are a bit sore, and also i have a strange feeling on my left side, i might add i only have my left tube due to a etopic pregnancy(they removed my right tube)

thanks and enjoy the day

Dear Marie

The earliest possible confirmation of a pregnancy is by means of a sensitive blood test called a quantitative beta HCG. This test should become positive approximately 10-12 days after ovulation has occurred i.e. approximately 2 days before the anticipated onset of menstruation. However I may add that the symptoms that you experience are more in keeping with the high progesterone levels than an indication of pregnancy perse.

Hi blood tests can be done about 10 days after ovulation maybe even a bit later. Implantation takes atleast 7-10 days! Good luck!!!
