Have to wait: A blood test will be positive 8 or 9 days after conception (essentially ovulation although it is not exactly the same) and a home urine test will start to show positive 2 or 3 days after that. In other words you should be able to tell a little before your period is due.

Pregnancy Testing: One must have a delayed or missed period before one can get an accurate assessment of pregnancy with a home pregnancy test. Testing too early will be a waste of money and nerves.

Pregnancy: Your question is a bit vague. If one has a regular cycle (28 days), then a sexual encounter 9 days before ovulation is unlikely to lead to pregnancy. If the encounter is around ovulation chances of pregnancy are higher. Consider taking another pregnancy test around the time you expect your next period and repeat in 2- 3 days if needed.
