They are not expensive. Keep them with your menstrual supplies. Take one the day AF is due, unless you start promptly.

I see so many topics on here about pregnancy anxiety/fear of taking a test. All you are doing when you put off testing is putting your body under stress and denying yourself precious time to make decisions and get prompt healthcare (timely diagnosis of an ectopic pregnancy is SO important, for example).

To me, this is as important to a good birth control strategy as taking you pill on time or checking to make sure conforms aren’t damaged. You gotta know. Stop stressing, check every month.
