If a woman has cycles that are NOT 28 days, then this information will not be accurate. Generally speaking, a positive on a home pregnancy test can appear up to five days before you MISS your period, so that would be FOUR days before your period is due - again, this assuming you have a 14 day luteal phase (the time between ovulation and menstuation). What does this mean? It is possible that some tests will pick up a positive at 10 days post-ovulation. It is uncommon, but some women have gotten a positive result a day or two earlier than this. Most women will NOT experience a positive result until after they have missed their period. A doctor's urine test is no more accurate than an over-the-counter pregnancy test, but a blood beta would be able to detect pregnancy a day or two sooner than a urine test.

How many weeks does it take to know that your pregnant?

This will generally depend on the test that is used to detect a pregnancy. Blood tests are more accurate in that they can detect a pregnancy earlier. As soon as two weeks after a missed period, blood tests can detect levels of Hcg (the hormone pregnant females produce). Urine pregnancy tests generally do not detect a pregnancy before the 6th week because sometimes it takes that long for Hcg levels to rise to the point where a urine test will be sensitive enough to detect it.
