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.
Your first sign of pregnancy is typically your missed period. Symotoms, such as breast changes, begin to occur within the week of your missed period or it could eve be 1-2 weeks after the week of your missed period.
Paragard does not cause missed periods. If you miss a period on Paragard you should take a pregnancy test as soon as possible. No, it's not mormal.I read that if it's late you should see your healthcare provider because you might be pregnant.
Yes. It depnds on how soon the pregnancy test was done after a 'missed' period. The longer after the missed period, the more accurate the results. Some pregnancy tests are designed to detect pregnancy earliesrthan others. A blood test is the most accurate test for pregnancy.
