When to take pregnancy test?

My period is now five days late but I'm not quite sure when I should take a pregnancy test. I'm kinda chickening out cause I have hope my period will eventually come.
When would be a good time to take one? How long should I wait?

If you are 5 days late now you can take one. But you may not get the right result, Wait between 1-2 weeks after a missed period, If you are stressed then this could prolong your period coming as well. Good luck
