I can't remember how long you are supposed to wait to take a pregnancy test?

Hi :-) I'm on my 4th white pill of my birth control, and I haven't gotten my period. (Yes, that's me in the Health section asking about this.) I have a home test, but I guess that would mean that I'm only four days late. Aren't I supposed to wait like, 2 weeks?

  • I heard you're supposed to wait atleast a week after your missed period.

  • Some are accurate up to 5 days before your missed period. Most tests are 90% or better on the first day of your missed period. The brands vary. The box will tell you. You can test right now and be pretty certain the results are right.
