I'd say it's time when it matters. What I mean is do yuo NEED a test now? Probably not. I'd give it another week.



If you were having bad cramping or something like that, then I'd say a blood test would be good. Or other risks, like previous ectopic pregnancies, or a period that was a few weeks late.

I would just tell her you got a faint positive and you want to be sure.

I'd try to relax. Stress can cause the period to be late. I had a blood test done like, a week ago. I was three weeks late, getting negatives, and I have my tubes tied so if I did become pregnant the odds of an ectopic are higher.



Otherwise, I'd just hold out. I mean, if you got a faint pos then you might get a good positive before ever getting the test results back.
