Brief Answer:
Wait for her period...

Detailed Answer:

The results of home pregnancy test is not that reliable when it is done very early. Therefore we do not time the test based on ovulation days. You need to wait for her due period date. If her periods are overdue by more than 5-7 days, that would be the appropriate time to perform home pregnancy test.

Hope this helps. Wish you good luck!!
I'll be glad to help you further if needed.
