  • SOME PEOPLE SAY YOU SHOULD WAIT UNTIL YOU MISS YOUR PERIOD. BUT I FEEL THAT ALL OF US ARE DIFFERENT SO FEEL FREE. IT IS YOUR BODY, YOU KNOW HOW YOU FEEL.

  • Take the test AFTER you have missed your period. This way you've had a week or 2 for the egg to implant and the baby hormones to get in your system. Testing now your very likely to get a false negative.

  • I would say 2 weeks after you've had sex. Or is that just if your doing a blood test? Well anyway, if you have regular periods do it the day after your missed period.... or just do it 2 weeks after sex! Good Luck!!!!
