Pregnancy Testing : The best guide is that you wait till you have missed a period or if the period is delayed. Testing sooner than that will most likely be negative and not helpful.

After implantation: Usually will be positive a few days after implantation which could between about 2 to 3 weeks after last ovulation.

Follow instructions: You need to read the test strip within the prescribed time frame or the results are not valid. If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
