    Basic pregnancy testing is done using a urine sample to assess the levels of hCG in the urine. A doctor can also arrange a blood pregnancy test to be done. Pregnancy blood tests can be done as soon as 11-14 days after ovulation, which occurs about two weeks after your previous period. Blood tests are more accurate than urine testing, and depending on the type, can also provide an estimated gestation period.
