If your blood test was negative 24 days after sex then you are not pregnant. This test would be highly accurate. You are not pregnant.
As to the home-made test, we don't recommend these. We recommend brand name pregnancy tests.

Hello Marycrane

We have helped you on this question before. A four day period has no significance, compared to a five day one. You're not pregnant. A pregnancy test can confirm this.

Hello. Thank you for posting.

Emergency contraceptives are up to 95% effective when taken as prescribed within the first 24 hours and up to 90 % effective with 72 hours. It works by preventing ovulation and stopping a pregnancy from starting. It will not end a pregnancy already in place. Side effects can include stomach aches, headaches, nausea and a general feeling of being unwell. The more frequently they are taken, the more likely a woman is to have side effects and an irregular cycle. They should be taken only for emergencies, not used as a method of birth control.

Symptoms usually start 2-7 days after taking the medication and may or may not include bleeding or spotting. If a woman doesn’t get her next period within a week of it’s expected a date, a pregnancy test is advised. Periods can often be delayed or longer/shorter as a result of taking ECP. They should get back to normal by the second cycle. We cannot predict what each woman's experience will be with ECP.
