As soon as you miss the first period a pregnancy test should show positive if you are in fact pregnant. There are some tests on the market that you can take 5 day prior to your expected period and get an accurate result. In my run ins with pregnancy tests, I've always tested the day after I expected my period to make sure that it wasn't coming and the results were positive. It all depends on your hcg levels too, if it's low you can get a false negative, even if you miss a period. A blood test can usually pick it up but you may have to wait until your second missed period to get a more accurate hpt.

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

If your normal period is late you should take a home pregnancy test and/or see your dr.

You should wait fourteen days after intercourse or the day of your expected period.

Several home pregnancy tests advertise that they can detect the pregnancy hormone pretty accurately up to five days before your (missed) period. However, it is a good idea to follow it up with an additional home pregnancy test should you discover that you have indeed missed your period at its expected time (should you have regular cycles), just to be sure whether or not the first one was accurate.

You should take a pregnancy test shortly after your missed period. That is when a home pregnancy test is most effective. Although I have heard you can do a blood test at the doctor as soon as 2 weeks before your missed period.

To get better results you should wait for your missed period. Some people even if they missed their period they do a test and it still becomes negative. It's best to wait a few days later after your missed period and then do the home pregnancy test. If it comes out negative and you still missing your period you should go to your doctor to get the best answer.

Five days after a missed period

A yeast infection or the treatment for it have nothing to do with missing a period. If you missed a period you should take a home test or go see a doctor to find out if you are pregnant.

Home pregnancy tests are designed to be used AFTER your missed period. Using it 2 weeks before a missed period could skew the results.

Yes. Pregnancy tests may not show a positive result until right before or even days after your missed period.

ASAP. Especially if you've already missed a period. Many of the newer meters can detect pregnancy before the first missed period. (or so they say)

The soonest I have seen for a home pregnancy test is 5 days before your missed period.

Yes, by than a period should have been missed and an at home pregnancy test will pick up the hormone HCG that is produced during pregnancy.

While some pregnancy test can tell you up to 5 days before your missed period, it's always best in my opinion to wait until your missed period. I would say a few days after your next hopefully missed period.

The first pregnancy symptom most women have is a missed menstrual period. If you feel that you could be pregnant you should take a home pregnancy test and/or see a Dr.

IT may,it depends on when your period it expected. It is more accurate to take the pregnancy test at the most,Five days before your missed period. It will be most accurate to take the pregnancy test the day before your missed period.

10 days for blood test and 14 days for Home pregnancy test. Well it could vary but this is the most likely when pregnancy can be detected. After you missed your period the home pregnancy SHOULD work if you were pregnant. Good luck.

If you missed your period it's time for a home pregnancy test

Pregnancy can be determined by todays over the counter tests as early as 3-5 days after fetilization, which is roughly the same time as ovulation (egg release). Therefore, its a question of when the person ovulated, and not when the missed period is. Home pregnancy tests can be positive even before a missed period.

Fatuigue is most often a big sign of pregnancy and since you have missed your period I suggest that you do a home pregnancy test and if it turns out positive then make a doctor's appointment.Good Luck!!

If you have missed your period for two months, you are probably pregnant. You could take a home pregnancy test, but you should see a doctor and if you think you could have an STD, you should see a doctor immediately anyhow.

Some home pregnancy tests can give you an accurate answer up to 5 days before your missed period. The later you wait the more accurate the results. Save your money and just wait until you are late to test.

Most at home tests can detect a pregnancy as early as two weeks before a woman's missed period.
