Check back tomorrow: The normal luteal phase is 14 days. That means you shouldn't expect a period for 2 weeks after ovulation. This phase of your cycle could be off by a day or two in either direction. Second of all, an over the counter pregnancy test may not be accurate until 2 weeks after conception. So either way, it may be too soon to tell. Good luck!
