Hu, I have gone through your question. First sign of conception and implantation in ultrasound is thickening of the endometrium. The thickened endometrium in post ovulatory phase can 've indicative of pregnancy.
I would suggest you to wait for the period, if they are delayed then do get a urine pregnancy test done and further management should be done accordingly.
Hope you found the answer helpful
Wishing you good health.
