I would test it right before, so you could see what your nitrAte levels were after x amount of days since your last change. It would also let you see the true ammonia/nitrite levels if anything was wrong, and also let you see if the pH was changing over time.

I would test both before and after until you get a good base line. This way you already know what to expect when ever you test.
