  • they have tests that will tell you 5 days before your missed period.. if you're supposed to have your period soon and don't about 3-5 days later take a test.

  • Most EPTs say up to 5 days before, but to be as accurate as possible, you should really wait until you miss your period!

  • If you go to the DR they could probably do a blood test, but why not just wait a couple days?

  • 5 days before your missed period. If you have concerns, go to your doc. Otherwise, I would wait until you can do a home test at 5 days prior.

  • You can get a blood test at the doctor to know for sure. They may tell you to wait for you to miss your period. The pregnancy tests they do at the office are just like the ones that are over the counter. Everyone's hormone levels will be different. You may have high levels to get a positive this soon or you may need to wait to get higher levels to get positive.

  • Well you can test 5 days before you miss your period. But if you weren't planning on getting pregnant I would say you can test 2 weeks after your missed period that way you can give your period time to come just in case you were stressing.
