when will i be able to take a pregnancy test?

ive looked online several several times trying to see when is too soon to take one, they all say a couple days after your missed period but, if i am pregnant, i would have gotten pregnant last time i was on my period so i would have to wait a month? or would i be able to take one sooner? its already been a little over a week since then sorry, its just frustrating i dont want to have to wait a whole month before i can find out if i am or not.

  • It takes 3-4 weeks for the pregnancy hormone to show up, sorry! The only way to tell sooner is with a blood test.

  • I know the feeling. I'm 8dpo and it's killing me to wait. I need a hobby or something.

  • As soon as conception starts, your body produces the hormone that is detected in a preg test. Depending on your body, some can test and get accurate results 10 days after ovulation. This is early but possible.
