Thanks for your query.

You can test now by doing urine pregnancy test at home. It should come positive by now. Preganews can be tried.

Urine Pregnancy test comes positive after one week of missed periods. Hence I presume you will know the pregnancy by doing above test. There is no need to wait.

If you want result to be more accurate, Please get serum beta hCG, which is an accurate blood test for knowing pregnancy status.

I hope I answered your query.

I will be available for any follow-up query you have.
