How early can you take PG test?

Last week my husband and I had sex and this week I am cramping really bad in my lower abdominal and have been spotting while wipeing. I have 1 more week on the Birth Control patch. is it possible to be pregnate? and when should I take a P.G test? MY period is not due to start for another 8 days.

Re: How early can you take PG test?

There are sooo many different kinds of pregnacy tests...........but there are one's you can take 1 day pass missed period. I think it is 1st Response. Look on all the boxes and there are some that you can take early. Maybe even earlier than 1 day missed.

Re: How early can you take PG test?

they make the kind you can take up to 4 days before you missed period. but it is only like 65% accurate then, and gradually gets up to 99% on the day of your missed period. i took that one 4 days before my period was due, and it was negative, but when i was a day late, same test came back positive. so i guess it depends on how high your levels are at that early stage.
i think since you were on the patch, that you are probably ok, unless you forgot to put in on at the right time, etc.
just try to relax, stress or worring that you may be pregnant can cause you to be late.
good luck and take care
