Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

How soon am I able to take a pregnancy test?

6 answers
Its been almost 3 weeks since my boyfriend and I slept together and I am anxious to know when I am able to take a test to find out if I am pregnant or not(my period isnt due for another 18 days). Is there a certain amount of time I need to wait so I dont waste a test by taking it to early? Thanks for any advice I get : )

i would wait until after your period is due to start. go through the cycle and if no cycle then go and get a pregnancy test
Thanks , I know I should be more patient than I am...but I really want to become a mommy!

I would wait until your period is due and you are late. I was 3 days late and took a test, it showed I was pregnant. I used the ept test. They are the best. Good luck!
