Dear Hayles

The best is to wait for at least 12days and then do a blood pregnancy test. A home pregnancy test may become positive 2 weeks after ovulation. Please note that if you have a regular 28 day cycle your ovulation would have most likely occurred on the 7th or 8th August and this would have been the appropriate time for intercourse and not the 21st as you have mentioned.
