How many days does it take after sex until you can take a home pregnancy test?
5 days before the first day of your upcoming period
There is that many home pregnancy tests these days that determine early pregnancy, test 5 - 10 days before a missed period, blah blah blah, my opinion, as anxious as you may be, is to wait til AFTER your missed period, then test, your pregnancy hormones will be higher, and you will get a more accurate result :) GoodLuck x
A pregnancy test can be positive before you even have missed a period. Many tests can provide positive results within 10 days after you become pregnant, however it is usually best to wait until you've missed a period because the HCG hormone (the hormone found in early pregnancy)will be stronger which in that case will give you definite results.
