  • About a week after the missed period. I know it will drive you nuts, but if you test now, you probably won't get accurate results.

  • I have been pg three times. Each time I test 2-3 days before my missed period and got accurate positives. I use first reponse early result. You should be able to test now.

  • I used clear blue easy digital 2 days before my missed period and got my postive. I did not think I was pregnant but woke up at 3am with a crazy urge to test so I did.
