  • It is possible that it will be accurate, I tested the morning I was supposed to start and it showed pos, but not all testes will show this early, I used an EPT and a dollar store one + and one - so depends on the test.

  • It all depends...if you ovulated on time and were pregnant, it COULD be accurate depending on how fast your body is producing HGC. If you ovulated late, it simply postponed your period. You could test now and if it's negative, wait 5 days and try again.

  • I always tested the day I missed my period....2/3 they were right. This last one I waited another week after my period and finally got a clear positive....

  • Depends on when you oed. If this makes 14 days since you oed, then go for it. If it is negative and still no AF, then wait two days and test again. Good luck!
