Pregnancy Testing: Four weeks after conception testing should be valid. Pregnancy tests are thought to be valid from fourteen days post conception on.

A female asked:
Is a week after possible conception too early to take a home pregnancy test, is there a better chance of a false negative?

Too early: It will not show up yet. You need to wait at least 3-4 more days and sometimes an extra week or else the chance of a false negative is very high.
