  • The best time to take a pregnancy test is from when you think you may be pregnant however they will only work from the first day of your last period.
  • The optimal time is the day your period is due or after, and with first morning urine, using this timeframe will make your results more accurate.
  • Usually, the reason for you to wait until you have missed at least one day of your period, is because that is the first indication that you may be pregnant. Home Pregnancy Tests (HPTs) work by detecting the presence of the pregnancy hormone hCG in your urine. hCG is produced in your body after the fertilized egg (embryo) implants in the uterus. This usually takes place about 6 days after conception (sex), but can take longer in other women. You can use a HPT at any time, but you may be wasting your time and money if you take it too soon. If you cannot wait, use a HPT about 7 to 10 days after possible conception, but if it comes up negative, you may want to take another test a week or more later just to make sure. Birth control pills usually will not affect the results of a HPT, but in most cases should be discontinued if you think you are pregnant. Your doctor can perform a blood test which can detect hCG much earlier than a HPT. In any case, if you think you are pregnant, even though you may get a negative result, you should check with your doctor for the final word.
  • If you are not having your period for 2 to 3 months it is probably due to your birth control regimen. Most birth control regimens provide 21 days of hormones and 7 days of inert sugar "spacer" pills. The hormone pills keep your body from having a period and if taken for 3 months straight, they can delay your period for 3 months. This has been a popular option that has caught on in the last few years.

The best time to take a pregnancy test is about 5 days after you miss your period and you should take it first thing in the morning. The morning is best because your urine first thing in the morning will have the highest level of hCg's.

Best time to take a pregnancy test is first thing in the morning with your first urine. Most tests are most accurate the first week of missed period.

The best time to take a pregnancy test is after your period is due. It's possible that a pregnancy test might work if you take it a few days before, but it is most accurate on or after your period's due date.
