If you're not sure when your next period is due, you can do a pregnancy test 21 days (three weeks) after you last had unprotected sex. Most home pregnancy tests won't register a positive result until you've been pregnant for about two weeks. Here's why: Home pregnancy tests work by detecting the presence of the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in your urine. Your body starts to release hCG shortly after conception. If you got a negative result, it's possible that you could still be pregnant but weren't yet producing enough hCG to register a positive test result. Levels of hCG multiply very quickly early in pregnancy, so you should wait a couple of days and test again. Another possibility is that you're having irregular periods for some reason. Things like gaining or losing weight or excess stress or exercise can throw your cycle off from month to month. Anyway, if you're TTC you should consider read the 'Getting Pregnant Plan by Michelle Adams e-book' from aboutgettingpregnant.com, it has a lot of information about boost your fertility, increase your chances of conceiving, and etc.

Anyway, if you are TTC you should consider reading ‘The Getting Pregnant Plan’ by Michelle Adams from http://aboutgettingpregnant.com. The 200 pages of information contained in the book will not only help you in accurately and swiftly pinpoint your ovulation, boosting your fertility, understanding changes in the female body and so on, but the folks on the website will also guide you through your use of the book until you successfully conceive. It's really amazing that they still maintain communication with me after having bought the book for 7 months. They consistently helped me throughout my pregnancy.
