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. Dr. Ditah
