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.

    My period was one day late when I took my pregnancy test. Although I already knew what the result would be because I had never been late in my life. I think anytime something is different or seems odd if there is a possibility you should test. Better to know sooner :-)
