Im 4 days late on my period, took a preg test today, it was negative. If I conceived a week ago would it be too early, but cause me to miss my period?

Im 4 days late on my period, took a preg test today, it was negative. If I conceived a week ago would it be too early, but cause me to miss my period?

Maybe too early: 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 done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
