Should I take a pregnancy test? adult content

I've been really tired lately and easily upset. And my boobs are hurting. I stared crying over my phone today. My period shouldn't start for another week. Maybe it's nerves? I don't know. I've been pregnant before so I feel like I should know. But I don't usually get this upset about like nothing. Thanks for your input.

  • It most certainly won't hurt anything. However, remember that symptoms can start before the HCG levels are high enough to show a positive on a test.

  • I would wait the week and see what happens. Why waste money on a test that likely won't give you a correct result until you missed period anyway?

  • Even the most sensative tests won't pick up a week early and if your levels are that low, you also would not be experiencing any pregnacy symptoms yet. Wait a couple more days.

  • I agree with Elly stress can make you emotional and late. I agree with sleepingbeautee. Just wait it out and then test.

  • check the labels on the boxes. I think there are some that claim to show a positive result up to 4 days before your period. even then it's not guaranteed to show up even if you are though. If you have the money, try a test then, but you'll have to wait it out at least a few more days.
    Your symptoms are definitely pregnancy symptoms, but not a definitive sign.

  • first response tells you 6 days before your missed period. but i would wait it out til you are actually late.
