  • I tested A week after and I used first response.

    If you do it too soon it doesn't work as well.

    I tried one too early and I just had to go buy another one.

  • I got a positive test 6 days before my missed period with my current pregnancy, so it's always worth a try, but to be honest you don't want to waste money. But if you have it to spare why not! Just don't be too disappointed if it's negative because of course it could be wrong.
