You should take pregnancy tests no more than 1 day before your expected period or the day of your expected period to ensure accuracy. According to the ClearBlue pregnancy test accuracy results they are: 4 days before expected period= 51% accurate

3 days before expected period= 82% accurate

2 days before expected period= 90% accurate

1 day before expected period =95% accurate

the day of expected period =99% accurate

You can take it at anytime. Your period will not affect the results of the pregnancy test and if you are having a light period and suspect a pregnancy, the test should be fairly accurate at this point. ~pawsalmighty

Yes you can. You can get your period through the whole pregnancy. You should see a doctor to make sure there are no problems, but it isn't unusual

Your period shouldn't affect the test! There is really no point in doing a pregnancy test during a period. Usually, if you are having a period you are not pregnant. A pregnancy test senses the BHCG hormone so your period should not affect it.

If you are on your period there is generally no reason for a pregnancy test as this indicates that you are NOT pregnant. You should take a pregnancy test if you MISS a period.

when should u take a pregnancy test, if you miss a period

No but you could be, a pregnancy test should be able to pick up the HCG hormone by now

look love, having your period is natures own little pregnancy test, you don't get it if your pregnant... if you think the pregnancy is recent ie just before, during your pregnancy, you should just think of the "rythm" method...

no, it is just a sign you are growing up. remember, if you are having your period, you are not the only one going through it.

wats spotted Spotting is when you get only a few drops of blood during menstruation instead of the full flow. If you've been having sex, you could be pregnant, no matter how safe you were. But, just wait a while longer. Since you spotted, it's possible you aren't pregnant. The best way to be sure is to take a pregnancy test if you don't get your period in another week or so.

There are many reasons that you could be spotting. You should make an appointment with your doctor and have blood work done.

No. Your pregnant if you don't have your period. If you're old enough to be pregnant, you should probably know that. No not pregnancy

It is bad to skip the period due to unwanted pregnancy. Pregnancy should be ruled out routinely, when you skip the period.

Yes. Having regular checkups throughout your pregnancy is so important for the child's health and your own.

I would not rely on that alone as a sign of pregnancy. When was your last period? If you are unsure if you are pregnant or not, you should take a pregnancy test! Good luck.

No, having a period, or other type of bleeding does not affect the results of a blood pregnancy test. ~pawsalmighty Yes it does affect it because there is not enough progestrone to stop the "period". Having a period equals have a negative tests. Eventually this period should stop if not, you have to get an ultrasound.

You shouldn't be having a period while pregnant. If you are experiencing bleeding and/or cramping you should contact your Dr right away or go to the ER.

If your period is always on time you can worry within a few days after missing...But normally a week late is enough to take a pregnancy test to see I would add that if you are worried about pregnancy and weren't doing so, you should be using proper contraception or not having sex.

If your period is late and you have been having sex without using anything to prevent pregnancy, you should take a pregnancy test.

Many women would assume that having their period meant that they are not pregnant. And strictly speaking, it does. However it is possible to have spotting (implantation bleeding) after conception. A pregnancy test should be just as reliable during your period. You do not need to wait to take it.

no u can not take a pregnancy test before a miss period it should be after a missed period

No. During pregnancy your body should have stopped producing the hormones that make your period start Having a period after conception may mean a spontaneous abortion (something that happens naturally and often) most often due to an error in the replication of chromosomes, but it may also be due to environmental factors.

No, a missed period is not complete confirmation of pregnancy. You should see a doctor, or at the least use a home pregnancy test.

You should go to the doctor immediately. Could be having a miscarriage. Or, pregnancy symptoms are very similar to period symptoms. Did you start your period?
