My boyfriend and I had sex the day after my menstrual cycle so the 27th. He didn't pull out. So I took the plane B next choice pill, the fallowing day the 28th at 8pm. When do I take a pregnancy test? I don't want to wait till my next cycle because by then I'll be a Month Pregnant. How soon can I take a test?
You HAVE to wait until your period is about a week late for a home pregnancy test to be accurate. If you take it any earlier, it may not be accurate. A pregnant woman releases a chemical called HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) only pregnant women release this and this is the chemical a pregnancy test detects. If it is too early, there may not be enough of this chemical to detect yet. You HAVE to wait until your cycle is due and preferably a week late otherwise you are wasting your money on the test. You need to use the first void (pee) of the morning as it will be the most concentrated.
