In brief: See below

If you did the test correctly at more than three weeks after sex that could have resulted in pregnancy, you are unlikely to be pregnant.
Wish you good health and a healthy baby! Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 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.
