Periods while Pregnant

How long do you have to wait until after you miss your period to take a pregnancy test and get an accurate result?

If you miss your period there are over the counter (OTC) tests

available that can tell you as early as 1 to 3 days late, these can

get pricey. I don't know how accurate they are but by 1 week late

most OTC tests can pick up the hcg in urine. The best way is to go

to your local health department. They don't charge for urine

testing and it is still confidential. Also, your family doctor can

do urine tests or order a blood test which is the best and most

reliable way of detecting pregnancy.
