Welcome to healthcaremagic.comImplantation bleeding occurs typically after 6-12 days after ovulation.a home pregnancy test would be able to pick up a positive 2-3 weeks after intercourse, or up to 5 days before a missed period, or 4 days before you expect your period to arrive. Most women, however, will not recieve a positive until after they have missed their period.A Blood test can detect a pregnancy as early as 7-12 days from conception, so a woman may not have even missed her period yet. The test is looking for the hormone HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) which is produced by the placenta of a pregnant woman.
