Are you worried you’re pregnant after having unprotected sex? An unplanned pregnancy can feel scary and confusing at times, but it’s best to first confirm you’re pregnant before thinking too much ahead.
When To Take A Pregnancy Test
The best time to take a pregnancy test is at least one week after a missed period to get the most accurate results. At this point, your body has time to produce HCG (the pregnancy hormone) to be accurately detected in a test.
Some pregnancy tests can detect HCG in urine as early as four days before your missed period, but as HCG increases with time, a test will be more likely to detect it in the days after your missed period. You can receive accurate results when waiting just a bit longer.
Home Pregnancy Tests
Though home pregnancy tests are very accurate, there is still a slight chance they could be false. If the test is taken too early or the directions are not followed correctly, there is a chance for a false positive.

A positive pregnancy test is a good indication of pregnancy; however, it’s only an indicator. Only a medical professional can diagnose a pregnancy. If you have had a positive pregnancy test, consider taking another or scheduling an ultrasound for verification.
