When should I test?

I'm 5 days late, usually have a normal 28 day cycle and i'm trying not to stress out but I don't want to take a test too early and have inconclusive results. How long are you supposed to wait after you miss your period??

  • It depends on the test some can read as early as 3 days after a missed period and but most will tell you atlest 3 weeks there are pregnancey blood tests as well, just remamber when taking a pregnancey tests the acwer 2 out of 3 is correct, except for blood tests.

  • Since you have a regular period, right now would be best to go ahead and take a test.

  • With DS2, I tested the day after I should have started my period and it came back positive.
