so i kinda think i messed up last month with my birth control patch. i didnt pick up my perscription in time and i put it on a few days late. me and my husband did the deed and didnt use protection. we have 2 kids already and i think im pregnant. how soon can i test if my period is supposed to be here in 3days.ive had m patch on for the last 3 weeks and its time to take it off  for my period. if i have the patch on then will that mess with the results? ive been nauseous and emotional i dont know if its all in my head or if i really could be pregnant. its just a feeling but with the past 2 pregnancies i knew i was pregnant before i took the test. intuition. i guess what im asking is when should i take the test and will the patch effect the results?

Any type of hormonal birth control can make you feel pregnant. 
If you are late, take the test, if you are not late, wait.

No the patch will not effect the results, no bc does. you can test now your AF is 3 days away use First responce early responce they are sensitive enough for 5 days before your missed period. Use your first morning urine its the most concentrated or go pee then hold it for 4 hours not eating anything high in liquid content or drinking anything during that tine frame. Gl! Any pink on the test line is a positive result no matter how light. Id test now being on bc while preggo is no bueno for the baby. Let us know im nosy and LOVE to see pics of tests!

You could go to your doctor and have a blood test if you want accurate results ASAP.

I have no experience with that but you could get a blood test done. =)

Messing up being late putting on the patch will do that. :)
