Should I test for pregnancy now, or give it more time?

Patient : It is has been approximately 42 days since the ending of my last period. My partner and I had unprotected sex 3 days after my period ended, but have used the withdrawal method since then. As it has been 42 days, I am wondering… should i take a pregnancy test now or is it best to wait longer, so as the results will be more accurate? Also, I am having very intense anxiety and have nausea daily. I feel as though I have had a hangover for about 2 weeks straight!
Symptoms:  Nausea, fatigue, anxiety
