What is the absolute earliest I can take a HPT?

I am trying to catch my pregnancy as early as possible to get my ultrasound asap, after my last ectopic loss.... can a HPT only detect 5 day before a missed period or is it possible to tell after 2 weeks (especially if morning urine is used)? - I already know about the blood tests.... I am asking solely about the HPT's. Thanks!

  • I wouldnt waste money testing that early, but the earliest i have seen was 5 days and i think it was less than 50% accurate!!!

  • Do you know when you ovulated? Usually 13-14 days past ovulation is a good time to test. If you know when you ovulated and you reach 18 days past ovulation, consider yourself pregnant.

  • 5 days before your missed cycle. That's the earliest I know of.
