So My period is 8 days late but yesterday I started spotting. I heard that you can still get your period and be pregnant. With that being said, if I take a pregnancy test while spotting will the test be as accurate as if taken without spotting?

Hello 027345 and thanks for posting!

My doctor told me that bleeding or spotting should not interfere with a Home Pregnancy Test (HPT). However, check the information sheet or call the toll-free customer support line for your HPT's manufacturer, to be sure. Your doctor or pharmacist should be able to advise you, too.

Best wishes,

Byroney
