Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection.

No: If this is a regular home pregnancy test, the results will be more reliable after you've missed your period.

Misinformed?: Why would you need a pregnancy test if you have a period? Having a period is physical proof that one is not pregnant. So, if you did test, the test would be negative, but would be unnecessary.
