Binge eating is not a symptom specific to pregnancy, but if you develop it only during pregnancies, then it may be specific to you. If you have been having regular cycles prior to this, you may take a home pregnancy test one week after your period is due. If you want an earlier confirmation, you can go for the blood pregnancy test and follow it up with a trans-vaginal sonogram and get advice from your gynecologist. Good luck.

hi there, most of the pregnancy tests are sensitive and give the results within a week of missed period and so you should take a pregnancy test to confirm it. If pregnancy test is not conclusive then you may wait a few days and repeat the test or get a serum HCG levels done or get a transvaginal ultrasound done which will be able to give you the confirmation. Take care.

Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Pregnancy tests detect the level HCG hormone. Some tests can detect low levels of this hormone and are early detection kits.
You can consider purchasing an early detection kit that would provide information in this stage of possible pregnancy.

I hope this helps
