HI and thanks for posting.
Blood test gives reliable results after 1week of being . They are more expensive and difficult to do. If you can wait until when you are expecting your next menses, then a simple urine pregnancy test will do.
If you are not on a contraceptive method and don'st want to get pregnant, please consider adopting one.

Whats the earliest i can take a pregnancy blood test?
Hi and thanks for posting.
Within a week, you can comfortably do this.
I however encourage that you wait until when your next menses are due before taking a pregnancy test and preferably to do a urine test as it is less expensive, reliable and cheap.
Hope it helps.
Wish you well.
If you don't plan to get pregnant anytime soon, please consider adopting and using a contraceptive method.
