how far along do you have to be before a pregnancy test will tell you if your pregnant?.?

if i am pregnant i would be about 6 or 7 weeks pregnant. i havent taken a test yet and dont really want to be preg. but my boobs have been hurting for the last week so bad that it wakes me up at night. my friend told me to wait another week and take a test but i cant wait another week i will go insane! its really driving me crazy not knowing. so my question again is how far along do you have to be before a test will give you a correct positive, or how far along is it best to take a test to be sure. is 6 weeks far enough along to get a correct answer?

    Have you missed a period? At a missed period it’s fine to take a test. A test is accurate as soon as 14 days after the sexual act that you think you “conceived”.

    Like the first answered said, have you missed a period? I found out I was pregnant at 4-5 weeks along.

  3. Rachel Anne Says:

    I got a positive test 2 weeks after the day I conceived. 5 weeks and 1 day after the first day of my last period. So I was 5 weeks and one day along. So yes 6 weeks from the first day of your last period SHOULD be long enough if you conceived at least 2 weeks ago.

    The pregnancy tests which are now available are very sensitive for the hormone HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadatrophin). You can now do a test which will be very accurate 5 or 6 days before your period is due.

    This means that you can go and get a test and do it straight away.

    Tests can be purchased over the counter from any chemist / drug store.

    You will feel much better when you know, one way or the other.

    Good luck.
