Best Time In Your Cycle To Take A Pregnancy Test

VeryWellHealth reports that after a woman becomes pregnant, it may take up to two weeks for her human chorionic gonadotropin levels to increase to a detectable level.

If your period is late and you're concerned that you might be pregnant, you should take a test. If you don't want to wait until your period is missed, at least wait one to two weeks after having sex before taking a test.

Each woman has a different fertile window, or window of time during which she can conceive a child, depending on her own individual ovulation schedule (release of an egg from the ovary).

Menstruation typically begins in women 14 days after ovulation. When a woman ovulates on day 14, she can typically expect her period to begin on day 28 or 29. A person who ovulates later in the month would have to wait until day 31 or later to begin bleeding.

Don't rush out and buy a pregnancy test, though; you should be absolutely sure you've missed your period before doing so. Monitoring your basal body temperature or using an ovulation test kit are both good ways to get an idea of when you are in your ovulation cycle.
