  • since it can take up to two weeks for the egg to attach to the uterus wall.. (thus two weeks before the hormone needed to show a positive pregnancy test)...

    at LEAST two weeks.

  • If you are having irregular periods, then you should talk to your OB.

  • Although it's tempting and exciting to try to get an answer right away, unfortunately you may have to wait. It's best to wait until you miss a period. Any sooner than that, you may get a negative but still be preggo and be disappointed or misinformed.
