  • Retest in the morning with a digital test.

  • Dollar store tests are great- they aren't always super-bright (read it in bright light!), but they are known for being accurate fairly early. Use it first thing in the morning or after not peeing for 3+ hours, if you want to have the best chance to see a positive. Good luck!

  • It takes 3 min for the result to show up. Yes retest. Make sure you use an early detection test. Also the cramps could have been implantation. Also if your cramps continue or get much worse you could have an ectopic pregnancy so go get checked out.

  • If you just expected your period today, it could takes a few days. You most likely wouldn't have any symptoms from pregnancy at that point.
