  • I would wait until you're a week or two late.

  • From what I have been told, family planning and clinics use those tests. I also know several people who use them and they have all gotten correct responses. You shouldn't have to wait very long, maybe a few more days, if that.

  • If you don't have the money for a pregnancy test, my advice is to enroll in college and take as many classes as you can before you have a baby and get stuck in a cycle of poverty. Life will only get much more expensive if you are pregnant. If you are not it is good planning anyway. I'm not trying to be a smart-ass - I've just been there done that and am trying to offer insight that I didn't have when at 20 I was pregnant with twins and uneducated.

  • Those test are just as good as any other test. You can use it now. If you want more information go to There are list of all preg tests and how accurate they are.
    Good luck!
    And, by the way, lifestyles are expensive, not children. GEESH!
