How many days after sex should you take a pregnancy test and is it ineffective to take a pregnancy while you are on you period?

You can take most pregnancy tests at 14 days or more after a risk, or on the first day of a missed period. The instructions that came with the test you bought should also say when, exactly, it will give an accurate result.

A period will not render a test ineffective. However, if you are having a period, you cannot be pregnant, anyway.

That's what I was trying to distinguish with heather but am still extremely confused. First I was told that spotting has nothing to do with pregnancy, but now I was told that you can have a period and be pregnant. I'm just trying to be as informed as possible.

Who told you that you can have a period and be pregnant? I know that this is not something that you have been told here, and Heather has been quite clear in your conversation about the difference between spotting and a period.

I was told that spotting and bleeding can happen when someone is pregnant. But how can you tell the difference between the spotting, bleeding and period? And I heard that you can get your period while being pregnant from almost every website on google including Webmd

Well, I cannot speak to the information you are getting via Google or on WebMD. We have been quite clear here on the difference between spotting and a period, so you can revisit your previous thread if you are still unsure.

As for pregnancy tests, this article should answer all your questions: Peeing on a Stick: All About Pregnancy Tests

This is going to be my last answer in this thread, as you are pushing limits that were set by other volunteers. Please make use of the resources we have on this site, rather than repeatedly posting the same questions.
