You have missed your period and so are confused whether you are expecting or not. This is a very interesting phase as you are not sure if you can express your happiness, share it with your loved ones or wait. Its time to let the confusion get away. You can diagnose if you are pregnant about two weeks after conception. It is the day when you were expecting your period. However, you can still wait for another few days to be more accurate.
What to do?
You can test this at your home by using the home pregnancy tests which uses your urine to find out the result. The instructions are properly given in any kit you buy. However, for more accurate results try this test from the first urine sample of the morning.
How the home pregnancy test works?
If you are pregnant your embryo releases a harmone named as Chorionic Gonadotrpohin into your blood stream. It also spills over your urine which can be easily detected by doing the urine test. Incase the test comes negative and still your period does not follow you can even repeat the test after few days. Though urine tests are normally accurate but you still need to visit a gynaec and perform the other tests that she asks inorder to be more sure about your pregnancy.
Your gynaec will ask you to perform a blood test of βhCG inorder to ensure that you are pregnant. It also helps to identify if there is any problem in pregnancy. It is always advisable to visit a doctor immediately after you know you are pregnant.
