1 week: A urine pregnancy test done correctly will give a reliable result when a period is 1 week late.

Most hPT: Are actually accurate 1-2 days before the expected menstrual period, but are more reliable if you wait a bit longer. Testing sooner than 10 d.P.O. Is very unreliable and shouldn't be done (unless you enjoy being fooled.).
