I think I'm pregnant, but how long do I have to wait after sex before taking a home PG test???

I missed my period for April and on May 1st. had a little spotting and that was it.

  • Usually you have to be at at least four weeks gestation to turn a pg test positive, so that would be two weeks after you have sex

  • You are already late so should be ok to take a test now

  • as soon as you've missed a period you can test. Some tests will actually show a correct read out a couple days before your missed period

  • It's not how long after sex, it's how long after your last period. If you missed, you can definately test.
