Most women who are pregnant get other symptoms as well as missed periods such as breast tenderness, nausea, fatigue, etc. This is one way you could decide when to take a home test. Remember these tests have only been available for a very little while and prior to this, we usually waited much longer to learn of pregnancy. This is not concerning if you are taking care of yourself, avoiding risky behaviors such as smoking, drugs, and alcohol, and taking a multivitamin in case you do become pregnant. I assume this is your goal, though you did not indicate your plan.
If you are not pregnant chances are that your periods will resume in a few months. If not, see your doctor to determine if there is anything that needs attention.
