    Am I pregnant
    I have a period tracker it is accurate most of the time or maybe a day late. I have been trying to get pregnant for a while now. Should I take a test and what are the symptoms. I have a son already and at the beginning of the pregnancy I was feeling normal.

    Don't bother with a test until you are two weeks late. The chances of a false negative are too great before then.

    When you read the instructions it does tell you the probability of correctly identifying a pregnancy at that point. The spoiler is that it isn't that high. It is a marketing gimmick to get more people to buy their test. The best results for both finding out and your wallet is to wait until you're about two weeks late. A woman's period can be variable for no reason whatsoever. It could come every fourth Friday for years and for no reason switch to 30 or 32 days. Testing a when you're a day late is usually just a waste of money. For the tests to work you need to have a good amount of hormone in your urine. That is why they tell you to take it using your early morning, concentrated, urine.

    You can use them, just be aware the chances of a false negative.

    There are often, no signs, except for a missed period, Many ,"signs" start into the 2nd and 3rd month.

    So, after you miss a period, wait about two week, for better results ( you can try earlier) Be sure, to use first urine of the day as soon as you wake up
