Yes, you have to wait and see whether you miss a period.

Maggie is right. But it is so hard to wait. You could have a blood test a couple of days before your period. You can go directly to a lab at the hospitals. It costs about R80 and if you do it privately (not on medical aid or through a doctor) you will have the reults within 30 minutes.

Phone a lab and ask them when you can test for sure.

Best of luck!

It is best to wait because if you do it to early it will be negative. Some test you can do a few days before.
I know how you feel I could not wait either and the test was negative and then I did one 5 days later and it postive, I was over the moon and ended up doing 2 more test just to make sure.
All the best
