For most tests, yes. But there are a few that can be taken a few days before you are supposed to start.

If you think you're pregnant should you stop taking the birth control pill?

Well if you have taken a home-pregnancy test and it is positive then yes, you should stop. But you should not take the pregnancy test until at least the day of your expected period or 14 days after intercourse other wise your results will not likely be accurate. If you do get a positive pregnancy test then go ahead and stop taking your birth control and make an appointment with an OB/GYN. If the test is negative, continue taking your birth control pills until you do get a positive pregnancy test. If you stop taking it before you get the test results and it is negative, your chances of pregnancy are heightened greatly. But if you continue taking it until you get a positive test result, you will not have had enough to cause any harm to the baby.

First sex was before menstruation but regular periods for the next 6 years until this month. Can the skipped period be caused by pregnancy?

Yes, that is a possibility. One skipped period is of itself not a certain indication of pregnancy, but it's one explanation for the missed period. Consider a pregnancy test.


In what week of pregnancy can a pregnancy test be effective?

A pregnancy test can detect the pregnancy hormone 7-14 days after conception, because most women do not ovulate until two weeks before your period is supposed to start. It is useless to take a test within five days of your missed period.


How soon after conception can you feel symptoms?

Early pregnancy symptoms can sometimes happen before a missed period and before a positive pregnancy test. Especially the 3, 4, 5, and 6 weeks pregnant signs. Early pregnancy symptoms and signs are usually related to the pregnancy hormone hCG or "Human Chorionic Gonadotropin" which is responsible for pregnancy signs. Even though hCG is usually not detectable in large number until after a missed menstrual period, there are many women who report having typical pregnancy symptoms even before they miss their period. There are early detection pregnancy tests available that can confirm pregnancy as early as 6 - 8 days after conception has occurred (well before a missed period).


When should you take a pregnancy test after sex?

From the lables on most pregnancy tests they wont registare the pregnancy hormone until around the time you miss your period. I find it varies by person though. I would say wait a week or two before taking it. If you don't miss your period there shouldn't be much of an issue but you may want to take one if you are really worried.AnswerFrom the lables on most pregnancy tests they wont registare the pregnancy hormone until around the time you miss your period.
