Wondering how often to take a pregnancy test if your periods are irregular? Knowing when to take a pregnancy test if you have an irregular period can be confusing. Tests on the market today all boast “3 days before your missed period” for best results. We're here to make this easier. Read on for answers.

How do you know when to test if you don't get your period once a month?

The good news is, you’re not alone. Over 30% of women have irregular periods. We do too! If you have an irregular period or your hormonal birth control has stopped your period, it’s best to test at least 19 days after having sex. If you’re having sex on the regular, you can subscribe to Stix for peace of mind. We offer pregnancy test subscriptions that ship out every one, two, or three months. The frequency is up to you, and you can cancel or pause the pregnancy tests at anytime.

Stix pregnancy tests also come in two packs. We recommend waiting a few days after taking your first pregnancy test to take the second. Levels of hCG (the pregnancy hormone) double in your urine every few days.

Why we take regular pregnancy tests with irregular periods

We've always had irregular periods. That means every month we panic when our periods doesn't show up exactly 28 after our last one. And did you know that stress can make your period late? That's right, late period stress means an even later period. We started testing every month or so and now we never worry about our periods being a few days late.

  • contact (hrdesk2225@gmail.com) if you are TRYING TO CONCEIVE, I never thought I’d be writing this message but after 5 years of and nearly lost my marriage due to not be able to have a child after i suffer from PCOS and my TUBES ARE TIED, severe endometriosis and scanning, I was told that IVF was the only option. This was something we could not afford and had almost given up hope of becoming parents. A friend of mine recommended DR Agbola to me and persuaded me to contact her, she did a spiritual breakthrough for me to make me GET PREGNANT, within 2 weeks I was pregnant (naturally!!!) and gave birth to a healthy twins in February. I am writing this message for those women who are at the stage I was at, depressed with no light at the end of the tunnel. give DR Agbola a try to help you solve your problem, and hopefully you’ll have the same success that I have had. Here is her email address (hrdesk2225@gmail.com) . wish you all happiness in your marriage.
