Home Pregnancy Test (cont.)

When to Seek Medical Care

If your period is late and you suspect you may be pregnant, wait 7-10 days before trying the home pregnancy test. If the test is negative, wait a few more days. If you still don't menstruate, try the test again. If you still test negative and your periods do not return to normal, see your health care provider.
