Most (but not all) newly pregnant women will have a sufficient amount of hCG by 7 to 10 days post ovulation to confirm pregnancy with a highly sensitive home pregnancy (for example, a test calibrated to detect 20 mIU/ml of hCG. It is important to note, however, that testing this early can result in a false negative, especially if you ovulated later than you thought, your hCG production is on the low end of normal, or if implantation has not occurred yet. If you decide to test as early as 7 days post ovulation and you get a negative result, Its recommend testing again in a few days, just to be sure! Therefore, the simple answer to the "how early can you take a pregnancy test" question is between 7 and 10 days after ovulation ...much better than waiting a full two weeks!
