How late for your period would you have to be before you would take a test?

Whats your time limit? How long did you wait? (I'm not asking if I'm pregnant by the way)

  • I waited till a couple days after. Before kids my period was pretty consistent. When I was one day late with both of them I knew I was pregnant. Now 2 kids later I cant tell you when my period will come it's all over the place now

  • Generally it is best to wait a week or two. With this pregnancy my period was messed up to begin with so I was 6 weeks pregnant before I found out. All it took was for me to almost pass out like I did do with my oldest.

  • I am usually pretty regular so if I was two days late I would test. A cheap test. After a week a more expensive test. after 10 days I'd be calling my OB.

  • I never waited that long - I always tested a couple days before it was supposed to start - and it was always right.
