Larell - July 5

well.... I'm not to sure when i should take one of those home pregnacy tests.....because i havent really kept track of when i get my period. For what I read about you are suppose to test the day after you missed your period, but i wont no when that is. so when when should i test? or is my best bet to just guess when im about to get my period.?

Larell, you can test with some test even prior to getting your period and they will come out. Normally you have to be somewhere between a one and two weeks pregnant before a pregnancy test will be accurate, however sometimes you have to be even farther along than that to get a positive test. Do you know at all when you're last period was and do you normally skip periods? If you skip it may be harder to know when you should test, but if you know (or approximately know) when your last period was and it's been a month or longer since you had it than you should probably take a test. Otherwise, if you're just wondering you can take a test anytime. If it comes out positive you'll know you are pregnant. If it comes out negative, well than you may not be pregnant or it may just be to early to get a positive. Wait a week or 2 and if you haven't gotten your period take another test and see. Either way, if you're normally someone who gets their period every month or so, and you wait another couple weeks (I'm a__suming since you don't remember for sure when your period was that it's been at lest a week or two since you had your last one) and don't get it you should probably see a doctor.
