Missed my period by a week and I have before but this time I've had what feels like period cramps for the past 5 days but no period. Should I test now?

Missed my period by a week and I have before but this time I've had what feels like period cramps for the past 5 days but no period. Should I test now?

If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
