Our expert says:
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.
