A pregnancy test should be taken the week after a missed period to ensure the most accurate results. This allows the human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), a hormone released by the placenta during pregnancy, to build to a detectable level.

If you have an irregular period or you do not track your cycle, it can be challenging to know when to expect your period. In this case, you can test 3 weeks after you had unprotected sex.

If you are sexually active, you are at risk of contracting a sexually transmitted infection (STI). The CDC states, “The most reliable way to avoid infection is to not have sex (i.e., anal, vaginal or oral).” Limiting your sexual partners, staying in a monogamous relationship, and using condoms can only reduce your risk. STIs do not always have symptoms, so if you are sexually active, it is essential for you to be tested. STI testing is quick and simple, but it plays a crucial role in your sexual health. Free STI testing is available at Relate Care Clinic. Contact us for an appointment today.
