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. ...Read more

If your fibroids normally cause you to have back pain with your period, this may also be so. But, if this is new, it is more concerning. I recommend getting checked out by your OB doc asap. Congrats on the pregnancy and good luck to you. ...Read more
