How long do I wait to take a test?

Wait about 2 to 2 1/2 weeks from the time you had sex until you test. It takes about two weeks for your hCG levels to be high enough to be detected in your urine using a home pregnancy test.

Hello, Skyblueorange.

Thank you for your post.

Birth control pills need to be taken correctly and consistently to be effective. If you missed that many pills, I advise taking a pregnancy test as well as contacting your doctor for further instructions about your birth control.
