How long should i wait to test?

OK i am on BC pills. I just started a little under 3 weeks ago. I know it is normal to miss a period, but i want to test to be on the safe side. How long should i wait to test?? I am thinking of testing friday, but i want to try and get the most accurate reading, cause i am one of those better safe than sorry type of people. Any advice or suggestions would help. BTW IF YOU ARE HERE TO BASH PLEASE DONT!!!!

  • I am definately testing tomorrow. I have been having some light (very light) spotting mixed with discharge that looks alot like the kind you have when you are in labor.

  • It's best to wait a week after your period was due. There are tests that can be used earlier but a week after you were due is best.

  • I think it all depends on what BC you're on... They got these new ones that i don't know much about. When I was on BC I never missed a period.
