is it possible to test 3 days after missed period?

My cycles usually 28 days, my last period was on the 5th july, so I'm due on on the 2nd aug, its now the 5th and still no sign? If I test now will it be to early to tell? Thank you

  • Some tests can detect the pregnancy hormone 3 days BEFORE your period is due, depending on when you ovulated. If you tested now, HCG would definitely be detectable if you're pregnant.

  • No, since you can test now up to 5 days before your period it will be fine

  • Of course you can test. You will waste you PT test but you can test any time you want.
    It is best to follow the directions on the box though.

  • Most modern tests will work as soon as you miss a period, some even before that. The down side is that a lot of those very early pregnancies don't take, so women get excited over something that may go wrong.

    use first pee in am, even if test does not ask for it- more concentrated

  • You should be fine to test. Your cycle is actually MIA so go ahead.
