  • Depends on the test. Usually just a few minutes.

  • Best time to take one is a week past your missed period.

  • 4-6 weeks. Pretty much a week after you missed period. Once you missed your period you're about 4 weeks along. Or you can try and get it at 3-4 weeks by doing a blood test at the doctors office. So 1 week before your missed period.

  • I took one pregnancy test about 2 weeks after conception and it was negative. A few days later it was positive. It is looking for a hormone in your urine that is only present when you are pregnant (or on certain birth controls), so while it takes a little while to get a readable amount in your urine, it doesn't have to be long.

    If you are getting negative readings and still feel that you might be, pop into your doctor's office and they have slightly more sensative tests that will give you an answer.
