Unhappy When should i take pregnancy test? Need help - November 6th 2017, 05:13 PM

When is the best timing to take pregnancy test? My girl friend expected period is coming in 2 days time. If she doesnt have any bleeding on that day should i take the pregnancy test on the same day as well? And what if her period come? Does that mean she's not pregnant?

Please help im really worried!!

The best time to use a pregnancy test would be a few days (at least two weeks I think) after having had sex. The tests usually messure some hormon and the body needs some time to adjust if she is pregnant, so if you had sex like two days ago or something a pregnancy test won't help much. At least as far as I know.
Her period does actually not matter that much. There are some people who have their period even while they are pregnant and her period could also be delayed. It happens often if you are stressed and since you seem to be that worried and she probably is as well, there is a good chance she will be late but it doesn't mean she is pregnant.

So best thing to do is wait a few more days (unless the time you had sex already has been a few days ago) and then use a pregnancy test. And next time better use a condom and spare yourself the stress


It's ok to give in to an urge or make a mistake. You are only human and we all have our flaws. We all have our weak moments and we all make mistakes. Thats what makes us human.
Thats what makes us unique and beautiful

Courage isn't always a loud roar. Sometimes it is a quiet whisper at the end of a day saying: Tomorrow I will try it again!

Yes, a person can take a pregnancy test two weeks after the last time they have had sex. If they were to take it any sooner it would be unlikely to be all that accurate. If your girlfriend does end up having her period that it is not likely that she is pregnant. I would suggest that you and your girlfriend look into contraception though. You can get condoms fairly easy which would be a good thing to consider.

Best regards.
