Hello dear,
Thank you for asking HOCM
Pregnancy test detect HCG hormone in the urine.
It should be done on 7 day after missed period (7 days after your normal menstrual bleeding day)
If you did 2 days late , it will come negative.
For accurate pregnancy detection you should test for blood hcg level,
that is highly sensitive.
It detect hCG shortly after implantation, which can occur anywhere from 6 to 12 days after ovulation.

Hope this may help you.
Take care
