  • if you don't get your period when ya should take one. . there are a few test out there i think you can take about 5 days before your missed period but I don't know how accurate they are.

  • the hormones that are detected from a pregnancy test usually dont pick up until you are about 3-4 weeks pregnant. some howvever do pick up earlier but its unlikey. you should probably wait until your cycle is suppose to start, if you miss take a test. if you are still uncertain even if you do start your cycle, still take a test. Some women will have a cycle every month even while pregnant. Good Luck!

  • You can take a pregnancy test the first day after your missed period, however it may be too soon to be accurate. It's possible to get a negative result, but really be pregnant. You may even wait a week or so after your cycle is supposed to start. Also, you may want to consider seeing a doctor for the test, that way you can start getting the care you need right away if you are pregnant, or you can get birth control if you aren't. Best of luck to you!
