After missed period: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Light cramps right side 2 days post ovulation. Now having clear CM but more than usual. Used pull out method. What are chances of pregnancy?

Over the counter tests can detect pregnancy as early as a day or two past your expected period. The pull out method is not as effective as other means of birth control.

The work of bergh and navot, 1992 is the foundation of endometrial receptivity http://humupd. Oxfordjournals. Org/content/13/. ...Read more
