Not accurate: Yes you can, but it will probably be falsely negative as implantation may not have occurred that soon.

2-3 weeks: Some pregnancy test can be positive a week or so after ovulation. But a week after you should have gotten your period would be better.

You may but it may : Be too soon to provide a meaningful answer. Home pregnancy test usually becomes positive about a week or more after a missed period. Blood test is more sensitive but even that should be used 2-3 days after a missed period.

See details: That would depend on the test. Some tests can detect a pregnancy several days before the miss period. The product should list how soon it is capable of detecting a pregnancy. If you tested five days before and it's negative, then I would wait a few days and repeat it.
