I’m sorry to sound rude and blunt but if someone needs to ask this question then maybe they should not be having sex :flushed:


Why do people keep asking this question?? Not trying to be rude but everyone knows you at least wait two weeks or more???


If you’re trying to convince, surely you should know or be slightly aware of how a cycle works regarding ovulation and the time it takes the egg to fertilise which would then answer this question? Please educate yourselves if you’re wanting to get pregnant and have a baby it’s not as easy as just having sex…


With my first test came back negative and was 10 weeks I had periods still and second I was 2-3 weeks and had no period

The first day of your expected period is the most accurate

I mean you can take it whenever you want lol is going to be accurate :thinking:

sure these are 12 year olds asking questions if you need ask these questions shouldnt be havent sex

If you don’t know the answer to this question, then you shouldn’t be having sex in the first place smfh

Wait until you know you missed you period. It will be the most accurate that way. I have had 2 kids and currently 17 weeks with twins. I never tested until a missed period


one week after your missed period will be most accurate :heartbeat:

Funny how this is a page called proud moms and y’all are just shaming. Some peoples parents didn’t teach them stuff they just asked a genuine question. :roll_eyes:


The OP didn’t state she had sex 5 mins ago and wants to test. It could have been 2 weeks ago and may be feeling some changes to herself… all of my tests came back positive before I even missed a period because I felt “off.” Every woman is different…


It says it on the pregnancy tests too. 5 days before your expected period. I would really wait until your missed period though.

I do it right away, like before getting a towel for my partner even. Not worried about the test’s accuracy here, tho, just something I enjoy


Immediately. Like 3 seconds later you’re pregnant. Congratulations


Go get an ultrasound if you really want to know that early. Or wait till you miss a period. What’s the rush?

Why all the hate ladies?

Wait until your period doesn’t show, and then do a test :blush:

Follow the instructions on the box of the pregnancy test. Each tests will tell you how soon their products will indicate pregnancy.
