When should i take a home test?

Last month i was under a lot of stress (moved) and started a week early. I have a 30 day cycle and if i base it off of that than i'm already a week late. But if i base it off my previous cycle i should be starting this week.


Would you take a test or would you wait?

So i took a test last night, and even tho i know false positives are nearly impossible i took another one this morning ...and they both look like this.

Yep take the test. You need to base it off this cycle not past.

every cycle is different. Do you have any symptoms?

Only ones that are also common for menstrual.

Fatigue, tender breasts, headache,

The only symptom that i don't have that i usually do get with oncoming menstrual is cramping. ...But i also feel ...idk. ...weird in that same area, right now. I can't tell if it's normal "tightness" or ...something else.

test with first response early result test. you can get a 2 pack and retest in a week if you need to. but it should be based off of current cycle. stress can delay Ovulation too though so you might not actually be late, just having a long cycle.
