Did you miss period?: You really can't tell pregnancy or not until you've missed your period. Once that happens I would wait another week before purchasing a pregnancy kit. If that turns out to be telling then, you'll have your answer. If it's negative you may need to repeat it. If you think there's ANY chance you could be pregnant then, stop all alcohol, drugs, & cigarettes until you know something for sure. ...Read more
