How soon can blood test tell if I'm pregnant
My period is due in a week's time on the 22 of July, which is a Friday (day 28) How soon after conception, will a blood test be positive. The reason I ask, is that I desperately would love to be pregnant, and I know me (and my partner) won't want to wait until the next Monday to know if I'm preganant. I live in the country and have to plan my trips to town (to have the blood test done)!

And then my second question would also be how long it takes the average women to get pregnant after leaving contraception ?
Thanks so much - all opinions welcome.
