1 week late: Home pregnancy tests don't turn positive until you are about 1 week late. If they're not positive by then, repeat in 1 week.

Can you let me know how many days after a period should you take a home pregnancy test?

Pregnancy 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.
