In brief: A/W Dr. Rutledge

If sexually active with a regular cycle- I would consider a home pregnancy test when you miss your period.

In brief: Depends

It is common to miss periods for many reasons, but if you are usually regular with your periods, and you are sexually active, then being late is more likely because of pregnancy! consider taking a home pregnancy test if you are a few days late to find out for sure.
