Is it possible to?

Get a positive test after 1 weeks of conception? I know when I got pregnant and took a test 1 week later and thought it was positive, it was $1.00 test and line was messed up so took one a couple days later and was positive. Has this happened to anyone?

  • It depends on the sensitivity of the test and when implantation occurs. If implantation occurs early (6ish days past ovulation), and you test a couple of days after that, then an early response test may pick it up. A non-early response test probably won't pick it up until a couple of days later. And this is all assuming normal hormone levels; some women's levels are pretty low and can't be picked up for weeks after a missed period.
