How soon can I do a pregnancy test?

When can I get a pregnancy test?

Check the test package to find out when it can be used.

If you have regular periods, you'll probably know when your next period has expired.

If you're not sure, it's a good idea to wait at least 3 weeks after thinking you've thought about it before taking an exam.

Pregnancy test results:

A positive test result (pregnant) is almost certainly correct, A negative (non-pregnant) result is less reliable.

If you still think you're pregnant after a negative result, wait a few days and try again.

If you're still getting negative results, but you're afraid your period will be too late, talk to your family doctor.

When am I pregnant?

  1. Pregnancy tests check for the presence of pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG), in your urine, Your body begins to produce HCG after you are pregnant.
  2. If you get a positive test result on the first day of the lost period, you've probably had about 2 weeks since you conceived.
  3. You can use the Pregnancy Expiration Date Calculator to find out when the baby should be born.
  4. More sensitive tests can confirm that you are about 8 days old after conception.
  5. Some pregnancy tests may give an estimate of when you may have had HCG levels in your urine.
