In brief: May be testing too

Soon. Home pregnancy test start turning positive 7-10 days after the missed period.
You may wish to see your doctor for a more sensitive blood test or wait 4-5 days before testing. Douching is not likely to have affected the period and douching, in general, is not a good idea. See this site for early signs of pregnancy. http://www.webmd.com/baby/guide/pregnancy-am-i-pregnant.
