Hello. : Hello. I don't know if you are pregnant. Classic pregnancy symptoms can begin as early as when you miss your period. You can test with a routine home pregnancy test as soon as the first day you miss your period. Sometimes a woman can be pregnant and have a negative pregnancy test because the HCG level was not high enough to trigger a positive. In that case you can retest in a week or less. If you tested before missing your period, it is not likely to show a positive unless you used an early detection test.
