  • i took mine after i missed my period, on the day i was supposed to get my period and the day before my period was supposed to come (for my 3 kids i mean, not all of that for 1 pregnancy lol). it worked each time for me. they have guidelines on the pamphlet in the box.... i think it might be different for each test, depending on the brand

  • my first one I took before and it came back negative then took it 5 days after my missed period and it came back positive. with my second I took it the day I was suppose to get my period, with my twins I tested 3 days before and it was negative then the day I was suppose to get my period and came back positive with this current pregnancy the day I was suppose to get my period. I'd wait till the day of or the next day.

  • With all 5 of my pregnancies, I took the early results First Response non-digital test 5 days before my missed period. I always got accurate results.
