Best time to take a over the counter pregnancy test?

I had sex a week ago today and I’m late on my period/ missed a period. I read it’s best to take it 1-2 weeks after possible conceiving in the morning but I’m wondering can I take it now or should I wait another week to take a test for the best possible results?

I’m excited/ nervous and obviously want to know as soon as possible but if I need to wait another week to get the most accurate results I will.

I also don’t want to take one now and be disappointed if it comes out negative but still ‘possibly’ be pregnant just because I took it to early too early if you know what I mean?
I don’t know I think I’m being a bit weird about it but please understand this will be my first

Thank you for your replies

since you are late i would suggest you take one now, and if it does come out negative do take another in a week. if you really want to have the most accurate results i would suggest a blood test if you don’t want any disappointing false negatives

Have you bought it already? because there should be at least two tests you can take. I would take one in its suggested period and do it another week after.

You need to take it at least 3 weeks after you had sex. Now is too early and would give you an inaccurate result.

Its too early and won't give you accurate results right now. I'd wait another week. And it's best to take a test first thing in the morning
