Everyone's different, but most people don't notice anything until they have missed a period. Then you'd be about a month pregnant. It all depends on the woman, her cycle and her body.

i know you can have your period or miss your period when pregnant

It is so true. I had what I thought was two periods, one that looked regular and the next month one that was light. And then no period. All my pregnancy symptoms were always there although i had both a blood test and a urine test. I would be on my 3rd month right now and i am going to see my doctor to run test. If you think that you might be pregnant act like you are and give it time for the HCG to build up in your blood stream. Also, after consulting many books a woman can have slow progesterone build-up and it may take at least 2 to 3 months for the vaginal bleeding to stop.


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

  1. Conception usually occurs about 5-7 days after intercourse
  2. Your most fertile period is about 5 days before ovulation
  3. For most(but not all) women ovulation occurs about 14 days prior to her period.

To ensure the best results:

  • Take the test in the morning, if possible, because your hCG (pregnancy hormone) levels are at it's highest
  • Don't drink a bunch of fluids before taking the test because it will dilute your urine and can affect the results
  • Take the test no more than 1 day before expected period. Although some test say that you can see results up to 5 days before your missed period, the percentage of accuracy is very low.
  • urinate for as long as possible on the foam-like strip
  • Check the results in the window frame of time suggested by the instructions of the pregnancy test.
