  • Well really you need to wait until you miss your period. Most pregnancy test can give you a result 5 days before your missed period. Wait untill then a try a test. Good luck!

  • I got a positive at 10 dpo, but it's generally more accurate if you wait longer.

  • Try to wait till you know you have missed your period. But then again I knew I was pregnant since day one and took a test at 3 weeks and it was positive. Just listen to your body. You will know.

  • 2 weeks IF you had sex near ovualtion. If you just finished a period within a week or so you will have to wait longer and are more than likely not pregnant because most women will not ovulate that soon after a period.

  • take a digital test 2 weeks after you ovulate, which is 2 weeks after you start your period.
