  • Up to five days before your missed period, but it is more accurate to take one after you have missed your period.
    Fatigue can be a sign of low iron, oncoming period, illness, etc.
    Cramping can be a cause of illness, gas, oncoming period, etc.
    Headaches are a sign of illness and coming period.
    Heartburn is a sign of indigestion and gas.

    Pregnancy symptoms are vague and do not specifically determine pregnancy. They are the same symptoms as other things and should not be used in place of a pregnancy test. Which I know you're not trying to do. Wait for your period to come and if it doesn't come two-five days after it's supposed to then take a test.

  • Oh I used ! First Response Pregnancy test, early result which can be used 6 days before your missed period. I've read though it takes about 10 days for the egg to fertilization and until that happens your hormone wouldn't be picked up on the urine test.
