How long should I wait to test?

AF was due the Jan. 21. I have had cramps for the last two weeks, so I was certain that I was going to start and I still feel like I may start at any moment. I don't want to waste the money on a PT if I don't really need it.

  • I personally would wait til a week after the missed period. That way you will be pretty next to sure you will get a positive.
    GOod luck!

  • Sometimes food city has $1 pregnancy tests! or the dollar store has some cheap ones. that way if you really want to know, you wont spend too much money on a test! lol
