You could give it a try, and then test again in two weeks if you're uncomfortable with your results.

Usually, after a missed period you're good to test.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its usually due to hormonal changes but to be on safe side go for pregnancy test.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
