    One thing lead to another (a long story to this) and oops had unprotected sex with my husband. The day after realizing in my fertile period. Anyway for the past couple of days I've been having menstrual like cramping and I'm not expected to start my period until the 21st. This being a possible 4th pregnancy I know how my body is pregnant. I'm thinking of taking a home pregnancy test before my missed period. Would it should now or should I at least wait a day or two after to get an accurate reading. With my previous pregnancies I never took a test before a missed period so I'm not sure. Thanks

    Most tests say they are accurate up to 5 days before your expected period but are more accurate the closer you are to your period.

    I'd wait and see if your period comes.
