  • Generally with most pregnancy tests you CAN test as soon as 1 day after your missed period. This may end in a false negative though if hormone levels aren't high enough. 5 days after missed period should be more then enough. If you test neg though and still no period say - 3 or 4 days letter defiantly retest.

  • your number will be higher if you use first morning pee as it has time to concentrate the amount of hormones you are testing

  • At five days, you shouldn't have to worry about testing too early.
