Certain?: If you had a certain ovulation on june 21, even a home pregnancy test is reliable by now. If the ovulation date is not 99% certain, you might check again early next week. Good luck, either way.

Could be early: An over the counter pregnancy test should turn positive within 7 days of conception. If you ovulated later in your cycle, it is possible that you are pregnant. It is more likely that your period is just a little late. Consider checking another pregnancy test in a few more days. If you are more than a week late with a negative pregnancy test, check in with your medical provider.

After missed period: It is better to do home test 4-5 days after a missed period; use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully, you may see your doctor for a blood test that my be positive as soon as one day after missed.
