I was wondering when I should consider a pregnancy test, the first day of my last period was 21st January so technically I’m a week late, I’m not usually this late so was wondering if anyone thought it was too soon for a pregnancy test, obviously I have had sex a few times but don’t want to mention it to my partner yet as I don’t want get his hopes up for nothing, we’ve already got a 7 year old son but would both like another child, just don’t want to be too quick to jump lol.

Ask your question

  • Pregnancy tests can pick up the change in hormones fairly early on.



  • you sure know by now :) good luck !



  • Once you’re late you can test



  • Its not to early. I found out when I was 4 or 5 weeks pregnant. (made for the what seemed like the longest pregnancy ever ;) ) If you try one of the test with a digital display it can give you how many weeks pregnant you are.

    Good Luck! Fingers crossed for you.



  • Thanx ladies, although af did decide to pay a visit in the end. mabye we should try extra hard lol. xx



  • I would test now. I hope you get a positive result.
    If you are a smoker or drinker the sooner you know the better.



  • yeah you can test now! some tests can pick up earlier than a week and they cost a lot more though.



  • In my idea you should try the test now! Success!



  • usually with 7 days so I would test! if it comes back negative, but your still unsure, wait another 2 or 3 then try again. Alternatively you can see your GP. Good Luck!!



  • Good luck. I think you should test. Let us know how it goes.
    Wishing you the best of luck!
    Im praying for my rainbow too!
