Usually it takes 15-20 days from your date of conception for the test to show positive. It may take longer in some women, who have less concentration of pregnancy hormone (HCG) in urine.
If the pregnancy test shows negative result, it should be confirmed by getting a blood beta HCG test. Discuss with your healthcare provider about possibilities of getting this done in case your UPT (urine pregnancy test) comes negative and you still have symptoms suggesting early pregnancy.
