How long should you wait to take a pregnancy test after you miss your period?

In brief: Don't wait

Most over the counter urine pregnancy tests will already detect the level of HCG after you miss your period.
Use your early morning urine as that is the most concentrated. Serum pregnancy tests will already detect pregnancy.

In brief: Agree with Dr. M.

Do the test now, If the result is negative, repeat the test in 4-5 days.
Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
