Is a home pregnancy test accurate 20 days after ovulation? (It was negative) My period is also 4 days late.
Can retest in 1 week: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period.

If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Got negative pregnant test 3 weeks after lmp, a week later tested positive. Would this be accurate or late ovulation? Time of conception unknown.
No: That would be much too soon, if we define conception as the moment the sperm meets the egg, leading to successful implantation of the embryo in the uterus. The home pregnancy test detects HCG in the urine, which means the HCG is coming from the location of the implanted embryo in the uterus. This means test is positive some time after implantation. ...Read more
