  • It depends on when you ovulate and when your period is due. Some tests say you can test up to 6 days before your pissed period but they are not 100% accurate at this time. Wait till you miss your period get get a accurate result....good luck!

  • It takes 12-14 days for the hcg in your system to be enough to show on a pregnancy test. I'd test when you're due for your period. a day or two early may or may not effect the test...I tested 4 days late and it barely showed positive..if I't tested earlier, it wouldn't have shown. GL!

  • Two weeks from conception. Allow a week for the fertilized egg to travel the tubes to the uterus to implant and another week for the placenta to put out enough HCG in your system to be measured. A test will be useless until the placenta is making HCG.

  • To get a good result, wait until your missed period.

  • Honestly...to get the absolute most accurate answer, wait until you have missed you period by an entire week. Although the tests say they test 6 days before you miss....it may not work in your case and you end up taking 100 negative tests. When if you wait to miss you cycle for a whole week, you know it should be showing by then.

  • I have always tested a day or two before if i was having symptoms. Always worked for me.If the line is there no matter how faint its a bfp. If no symptoms I would wait till your af was late!

  • It's best to wait at least 2 weeks to avoid a false negative. Even then, if you get a negative, wait another week.
