If you’re 3 days late then you can definetly take a test!

I believe the early result tests are something like 99% accurate the day of your expected period. That might even account for all/most tests available today, not really sure. Anyway, a first response test would be accurate by now unless you ovulated later than your usual timing. Good luck!

If this cycle was also regular, then a pregnancy test would be accurate. But given that you have a history of irregularity, it’s entirely possible that you’re just having a longer cycle and your period isn’t actually late.

If you do get a negative test, I’d test again in another 5 days or so if your period still hasn’t showed up.
