A missed period is a good sign of pregnancy so if you've missed your period then it's likely that you've become pregnant.

After 2 weeks of conception a woman usually has a missed period. So to get accurate results with a pregnancy test you need to wait up to 2 weeks before taking the pregnancy test.

If you test sooner than that you won't get as accurate of results.
