    My last period was on June 19th. My husband and I had intercourse on the last day of my ovulation cycle (according to the web md ovulation calculator) on July 6. On July 16 &17 I had light bright red spotting then on July 19 & 20 I had dark brown spotting. I took a home pregnancy test on the 20th and it said negative. Was is too early to test? I have not started my period which was due today. I am afraid to get my hopes up and then find out that I am not pregnant.

    It's possible. I would wait until your period is more than a few days late before testing again. Some women take longer to show on a pregnancy test than others.
