How soon after possible conception, besides a missed period, could a pregnancy test possibly pick up the pregnancy hormone? 10 days? 15 days? 19 days?

The pregnancy tests you buy at the drugstore can usually detect the amount of pregnancy hormone in about 12-14 days post-ovulation. You can buy pregnancy tests online that are sensitive to 20 units pregnancy hormone (vs. 50-100 units at the drugstore) so they can detect pregnancy from about 7 days past ovulation.
Hope this helps

Well, i do not know about the ovulation. I have not really looked it up or anything. When does a woman start ovulating? Before a period, after a period?

Ovulation usually occurs midway through your cycle. Lets say you have a 28 day cycle, then you count the day you started your period as day 1 then count 14 days, and that 'should' be the day you ovulate. Of course, we are not all on a 28 day cycle, and are not always that predictable. Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Kaylee is correct for a 28 day cycle you ovulate around day 14. A more accurate way to determine ovulation if you do not have a 28 day cycle. You ovulate approximately 14 days before your period. So if you have a 30 day cycle you ovulate around day 16 where first day of bleeding is day 1. If you have a 31 day cycle you ovulate around day 17. Your most fertile days are the two days before and the day you ovulate. I hope this helps.

My cycle is every 38 days so does that mean I ovulate at day 14 or is it 18 days????
