In brief: 2 weeks
If you have sex near the time of ovulation and you get pregnant your pregnancy test should be positive about 2 weeks later.

In brief: Pregnancy tests
Most pregnancy test are very reliable at the time of a missed menses.
If your period is late, a pregnancy test should reflect whether or not you are pregnant. Prior to that time, they are not really reflective.
