You can do a home preganncy test 3-4 days after missing a period. The average price is about R50. Most of the common brands are similar in their accuracy.
You can have a test done by your GP if you wish.

As soon as you missed your period you can buy a hometest. A bloodtest can be done at any Pathcare etc and it cost about R80.00 and you will get the results in 4 - 5 hours.

A home test is about R30 and at a state clinic it is for free.

Blood test is the best ' cause it is very accurate and also tell you how far you are.
