When Should I Take a Pregnancy Test?

According to the Mayo Clinic, the best time to take a pregnancy test is at least one week after a missed period to get the most accurate results. At that point, your body has time to produce the right amount of the pregnancy hormone hCG.

Even though pregnancy tests can detect hCG in urine as early as four days before your missed period, it is more sensitive in the days after. Get more accurate results by waiting just a little longer.

Maybe you’re unsure if you took the pregnancy test correctly. Talk to us today to get your pregnancy test questions answered, and receive another pregnancy test to be sure. We can help you interpret the results.
