In brief: About 4 weeks...

If a woman does a pregnancy test correctly, after missing her regular period for 8 days, and the result is NEGATIVE, she is now not pregnant and can actually wait 4 weeks (or the length of one full cycle) before doing another pregnancy test.
If a normal-looking period occurs in about 3-4 weeks, she is presumed not pregnant, but can retest at that time if she worries a lot.
