  • it's best to test when you miss your period.

  • I was one day late.. Your HCG levels need to be up to get an accurate reading and the first pee in the morning helps...

  • Yes a missed period & fmu is the way to go..

  • Probably. They are usually supposed to be accurate within five days of the period you would miss if you were pregnant. First morning urine is important for those early results, but make sure not to drink a ton the night before (it dilutes it). You'll want to wait until at least 10 days after you think you conceived to start testing, but waiting until you are actually late is usually the best way to do it.

  • The new first response tells you 6 days sooner but if you have low HcG levels you are more likely to give a false negative that early. My best advice is to wait until after your missed period because if your period does come on then you would have wasted the money for a test. so just be patient and wait a week to get the response. Good luck and I hope you get what you are looking for
