Now!: Testing to confirm or disprove pregnancy is most accurate once you've missed your period, in other words, at least 4 weeks after your last menses. However, if you're trying to get pregnant, it's best to consult your family doc & a reproductive endocrinologist if it's been more than a 12 months w/o success. In meantime, take a daily prenatal vitamin w/lots of Folate (folic acid) to minimize neural tube defect.

You can: see your doctor in the next week or so for a blood test, or you can wait to see if you get your next period. If no period, check a home pregnancy test. Good luck!
