Did you maybe just get pregnant but you aren't sure?It happened. You had unprotected sex. When should you get a pregnancy test?

Ovulation occurs around 14 days before your next menstrual period. You may ovulate a little early or a little late, so be sure to use protection if you don’t want to get pregnant.

A pregnancy test can be taken before your expected period. The First Response brand is reliable six days before your potential missed period.

If you get a positive result, you can retest in two or three days. If you have a negative test but think you may be pregnant, retest in a few days.

You can take morning-after contraception if you have an accident. No prescription is required and there is no age restriction. It’s effective within three days.

For those who aren’t ready for a pregnancy, there are many birth control options available. Speak with your provider to find what’s right for you.

Listen as Dr. Mary Jane Minkin joins Melanie Cole, MS, to help you know when you should take a pregnancy test.
