  • You can, but even the early ones don't guarantee results until 5 days before.

  • You can, but since a normal luteal phase (time between ovulation and menstruation) is 10-14 days, and implantation (when the pregnancy hormone, hCG, starts being produced) usually occurs 6-10 days past ovulation...you're more likely than not to get a negative, regardless of whether you actually are.

    The best thing to do is wait at least until you miss your period. You'll save yourself a lot of headache, and some money.

  • 6 days with the pink box
    The best one is the clear blue box with the most hcg. But do not take it 9 days before. You probably do not have enough levels in your urine .
