  • no you can take them earlier but the closer to your missed period the more accurate and less expensive it is.

  • You can take it up to five days before your missed period.
    It's more accurate if you wait until you've missed your period, but again you can take it up to five days before.

  • a faint line is still considered positive. I would test again in the morning with urine from when you first wake up. The urine is more concentrated when you first wake up since it has been a while since you last went and was not watered down by drinking to go to the bathroom. Good luck and baby dust
