When is the Best Time to take a Pregnancy Test

The best time to take a pregnancy test is a week after you have missed your period.

Testing too early may result in a negative or false test result. Most pregnancy test strips are built to test for atleast HCG level of 25mIU/ml.

​If your HCG level is too low, it will not be detected by most pregnancy kits.

Wait a few more days if you have pregnancy symptoms. You can also go to see the doctor, who will carry out a blood test.​
