  • I found out 4 days before I missed on my last. Which would be 10 days after ovulation. So I'm going to say yes.

  • I know it may be hard but you may have to wait until it gets closer to your period. I took one from home when I found out I was pregnant. I actually took it the day I was supposed to start and it came out positive!!! :-)

    Good Luck!!! :-)

  • no thats not true. you can wait as early as 5 days before your period suppose to start you are pregnant 4 weeks before it can be detected. its this whol biology with hormone levels and stuff.

  • Five days before your next period is how soon you can test with a possibility of accuracy. However, you should test after you've missed your period. That way you're getting the most accurate results.

  • Usually I could tell as soon as I missed my period; the test would show positive. Everyone says no. It worked with me.
