When to get a pregnancy test if I missed my period

I always tested right away after my period was late and I always tested in the early morning when the pregnancy hormone is highest. The longer your period is late, the pregnancy hormone should be increasing so time of day a week or two past the time your period was suppose to start probably won't matter as much.


If you already missed your period right now is the perfect time to get a pregnancy test. I recommend talking the pregnancy test with your first morning urine. Your first morning urine will be more concentrate and if you are pregnant it will have a high concentration of the pregnancy hormone.
