When is the best time to take a pregnancy test? Morning or afternoon? Does it really matter ?

Morning is better: It is better to use first morning urine. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

Can repeat in 1 week: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more

Maybe later: If symptoms are related to menses or pregnancy: home pregnancy tests are very accurate, but if done too early, a negative result may be due to testing too soon.

A woman can repeat the test if she did the first test too early, such as less than 2 weeks after conception. ...Read more
