How Long Should I Wait To Take A Pregnancy Test?

Dear BeingGirl Experts,

How long should I wait before I worry if I might be pregnant?




Dear Jama,

If you think you might be pregnant, and are already late for your period, you can use an over-the-counter pregnancy test to find out if you are pregnant. If the result is positive (you are pregnant) you should see your doctor/health care professional right away and get the test confirmed. If the test results are negative (not pregnant), and you still haven't gotten your period, you should make an appointment with your gynecologist for treatment of an irregular cycle and to get a reliable form of birth control.

Hope this is helpful,

Your BeingGirl Experts

I'm in 7th grade and when I am in high school I want to avoid any boy who wants to rape me!
