Usually, HPT becomes positive within a week of the missed period. Blood tests can give you even an earlier diagnosis. You may repeat the test after another week or go for a blood test. HPT are not sensitive in detecting low hCG levels as sometimes seen in early pregnancy. If you did not miss any pills in your last cycle, chances of pregnancy are less. Take an opinion from a gynecologist after an examination to exclude pregnancy if you should continue with your pills. Take care.
