Wondering when to take a pregnancy test for irregular periods?
Irregular periods: knowing when to take a pregnancy test if you have irregular periods can be very difficult. Pregnancy tests on the market today all boast of giving you results "3 days before your missed period" for best results. But how do you calculate those 3 days if your period is irregular? We're here to help. Read on for the answers.
How do I know when to take the test?
The good news is that you're not alone. Around 25 % of women have irregular periods. If you have irregular periods, or if your hormonal contraception has interrupted your period, it's best to take the test at least 19 days after intercourse. If you have regular intercourse, you can subscribe to Plusbaby for peace of mind. We offer subscriptions of pregnancy tests which are sent every month. You can cancel or interrupt your subscription at any time.
Plusbaby pregnancy tests are available in packs of three. We recommend that you wait a few days after the first pregnancy test before taking the second, and the same for the third. Levels of hCG (the pregnancy hormone) double in your urine every few days. If you'd like to know more about when to take pregnancy tests in your cycle, read this article.
Why we recommend regular pregnancy tests for irregular periods.
For people with irregular periods, this often means panic every month when your period doesn't appear exactly 28 days after your last one. And did you know that stress can delay your period? That's right, the stress of late periods means even later periods. If you start taking pregnancy tests every month or so, you'll probably never worry about late periods again.
