Brief Answer:
You can get your home urine pregnancy test.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting us with your healthcare.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.

You can get your home urine pregnancy test after 7 days of your missed period date.

Urine pregnancy test is not confirmatory so blood beta HCG test is the confirmatory test for pregnancy.

Hope you found this useful, feel free to ask for more information.

Good luck.
Regards

Thank you. When is the best time of the day to test? I've actually never had this issue.
