  • I took mine in the evening when I got home from work and it only took a few seconds for it to come back positive. I was about a week late.

  • i was 4 days late and took mine about 11 pm before bed. it was positive but very light so i tried to calm down and took another one first thing in the morning and it looked exactly the same! ive heard of people taking them 3 or 4 days before even being late in mid afternoon evening and it being positive. im pretty srue its all about your hormone levels. a friend of mine didnt get a positive till 12 weeks

  • I took mine when I wasn't even due to have my period, but I just knew I was. I took one in the afternoon when my hubby was home for lunch because he wanted to be here . And of course it was positive

  • I was 5 days late & tooke the test mid afternoon, I had a bright pink "+" in seconds (later miscarried), however the reason you have heard to take the test in the morning is that excess HCG, pregnancy hormone, is removed from the bloodstream while you sleep, so it will be at its highest concentration in the urine when you 1st wake up. If you want to take an afternoon or evening test go ahead, but if its neg & you don't get your period in a week retest. Good Luck!!!
