Help- test question

Okay, so I have been on the pill (maybe missed a few days). I am feeling all the symptoms, but have no idea of when my last period was- 3 weeks maybe? My question is- if I feel the symptoms, does that mean there are enough hormones for an early detection test to be accurate?

Re: Help- test question

If you ovulated, the test should pick up the hormones anytime after 14 days post-ovulation, sometimes before that. Usually that is before women feel symptoms. Because you're on the pill, it's hard to say when and if you ovulated. If you really feel certain, it wouldn't hurt to test.

Thanks, Carrie. I just feel like such a mess right now. Now is not the ideal time to have another...
Well, I did take an early detection test- TOTALLY NEGATIVE.
