I would wait a week or 2, or even until after your period is due, of you are late, then you should test. Are you trying to get pregnant?

Pregnancy tests measure the amount of pregnancy hormone (HCG, human chorionic gonadotropin). HCG is produced by the placenta. It doesn't enter the mother's bloodstream until the fertilized egg implants, usually 6-8 days after conception. Most urine pregnancy test can detect 25 U of HCG or more. You usually don't reach that level until the day you expect to get your period. Testing before then tends to be unreliable. If you get a positive result, you are pregnant, but if you get a hegative result, you may have tested too soon. Blood pregnancy tests are more sensitive. They can detect any amount of HCG from 0 on up. A blood pregnancy test can turn positive as early as 6-8 days after conception. Sincerely, Amy www.askdramy.com
