Hey Curious,

Your best bet is to wait and see if your next expected period comes. If it does not, then take a home pregnancy test around the day that your next expected period should have ended. It’s best to take the pregnancy test the very first thing in the morning with your concentrated urine for best results. You’ll also want to carefully read the pregnancy test instructions as some of them require the test to be read at a specific time. Sometimes, if you wait too long to read a pregnancy test, you may get incorrect results since the urine has dried up.

If, however, you have lots of money to burn, then you could buy a couple pregnancy tests. Some state that you can take them around the time that your next expected period should start. If you go that route, you could take one on the first day your next period should have started, then a second test on the day your next period should have ended, and then a third test a week after your next period should have ended.
