Blood tests can pick up hCG earlier in a pregnancy than urine tests can.

These tests can confirm a pregnancy about 8 to 10 days after ovulation.

URINE TEST:

If you cannot wait that long to find out and you know the day you may have conceived, then the earliest you can take a test would be 14 days from possible conception.

@JustaHarshaw,
The blood test for pregnancy has a 99% accuracy rate the main reason is blood test can able to detect even the smallest traces of the pregnancy hormone. If you take the quantitative blood test it measures how much hcg i in your system. You can take blood test sooner that urine test. As the urine test will not show the positive result.
