i missed my period nd im 6 days late. should i take a pregnancy test and when is the best time to take it during the day?

If you’ve had vaginal sex since your last period and your period is late, it’s a good idea to take a pregnancy test.

You can take a pregnancy test anytime during the day or night. You can either take a home pregnancy test, go to your nurse or doctor, or visit your local Planned Parenthood health center. Home pregnancy tests cost about $15 and are sold in most drugstores and grocery stores. Home tests work just as well as tests that a nurse or doctor give you.

If you take a home test, it’s important to follow all of the instructions that come in the package. The results will be either positive — meaning pregnant — or negative — meaning not pregnant.

Pregnancy tests are very accurate. Most home pregnancy tests work 99 out of 100 times if used after a missed period.
