How long after your missed period did you wait before you took a Pregnancy Test?

I don't know if my period is late or if my body wants to skip a whole month like it did in August. Which was the first time my period actually skipped a whole month. Now, i just don't know anymore!

  • I never waited... If I was late I took a test as soon as I could get one.

  • with my daughter it was like a week...but, my periods were never normal...i was just feeling different. My son, i wasnt having periods at that point and my boobs were really sore, worse than when you are on your i just felt pregnant so i took a test and it confirmed it.

  • it's supposedly 5 days after but im irregular so i didn't really have that option. i found out i was pregnant when i was a month to a month and a half late. if you think you are than just take a test, get a cheapy one @ the dollar store and if it comes out positive or you still don't trust it get one from the drug store.
