No. HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a hormone that is not even present during ovulation because it isn't released until after fertilization of the egg and is not even measurable until about 6 days after conception. Even then, it is not at a high level for about the next 2 weeks until around the time that you have missed your first period. Pregnancy tests measure the amount of HCG in the urine, and the earliest that there's enough HCG to show a positive reading on a home pregnancy test is about 5 days before the expected period, which is why the longer you wait to take the test the more accurate it will be because your HCG levels will be increasing.
