When to take a pregnancy test?

Many women are anxious about falling pregnant and want to know as soon as possible if they are pregnant. There is no stipulated date to take a pregnancy test, because everybody is different.

It is very difficult to wait when you already start feeling some symptoms like nauseas, tiredness or even sore breast, but it is better to wait until 12 to14 days after ovulation if your menstrual period is a regular 28 day cycle. If your cycles are irregular your ovulation dates will be different. 

Your first urine in the morning is the best urine to do a pregnancy test with; it is concentrated and not old or diluted.

In some parts of Africa many women don’t have access to pregnancy tests or can’t afford them.
