What is the earliest you have taken a test with a pos result?

I am pretty sure I'm pregnant. Right now I am sitting up with lower abdominal pain that feels like implant pain. I have been moody/crazy lately and exhausted. I have taken a couple tests even though I knew it was too early. I am still a couple days away from my period. I was wondering how early others were able to test and find out they were pregnant and what tests they thought were best.

  • I think it was 2 days after I missed a period. Dont get me wrong I did have VERY faint ones a couple days before but I was unsure. The digital didnt show up until the 2 days after. And mine didnt get dark until I was 5-6 weeks along. But I did end up losing the baby at 10 weeks.

  • The earliest i ever tested was 1 day before AF was due so on CD 27, it was an early responce test & the test worked & instantly!

    As you probably know, implantation generally takes place around CD 21-24 so testing before then is generally a waste of time - many make the mistake of testing too early & then have to re-test. Years ago tests had to be done once Af was 2 weeks late (so my mother says) things sure have changed!!!

  • I tested positive at just over a week pregnant. I was not even expecting my period for another week.

  • First Response is the way to go! I tested positive over a week before my missed period both times. Good luck!

  • I got a very faint positive at CD 23 (5 days before expected period) with a Dollar Tree test, but it was twins so my hCG was doubly high.
