How far in your pregnancy can you be before a HPT picks up on it?

I don't have periods to base this off of, but 80% sure I'm pregnant. I know every woman creates their own hormones at different levels. but when is it a sure thing to test and get a clear result if you are or not pregnant?
(my experiance is that "4 or 5 days sooner", doesn't make a difference) Am I wrong?

  • I got a positive on an HPT at 3w4d (10 days after conception). I hope that helps..

  • I was one day late when I got my pos. I think as a general rule if you have missed your period by 3 days or more it *should* be pretty accurate in *most* cases.
