  • I would wait until at least the day after your missed period. I have taken them before my missed period and they were always correct.

  • I think if the test was neg 2 days ago I would wait another day or so. I took a test 1 day before my missed period with DD. It was negative. I took it 4 days later and it was Pos. With DS it was POS a the day my period was due...

  • Now a days they are designed for anytime, morning urine is the best but if you can not wait you can still do it. I took my test 5pm and I was a very, hello, OMG, what the heck am I gonna do, my life will never be the same between a shit load of tears POSTIVE! Have been blessed ever since, he is now 18 going to the Navy.

  • I took one with first morning urine at 14 days past ovulation and got a positive instantly.

  • I took one at 11 DPO and got a faint positive. Just to be sure that the 'dollar store' brand was reliable, I did, however take a First Response preg. test today and I am a definite positive so the dollar stores can work for some people though some say that they haven't worked for them.

  • I took 2 about a week before my missed period just bc I "felt" funny and it was BING positive, lol. And that was over 8yrs ago.

  • both times i found out i was pregnant i used the cheap tests. they both worked and they were both positive. the thing i am having trouble doing this time is we are actually trying to concieve so i am using the early result equate brand tests from wamart... they come 2 in a box for like 6 bucks or something.....the ones at the dollar store for a dollar aren't early result tests so if i were you i would get the early result ones=] good luck !

  • well i tried mine at the dollar tree and it was neg my AF is due by tomorrow no later than friday the 10th. i will retest tomorrow to see. I could have low preggo hormones because when i was preggo with my younger son 11 yrs ago i was 3 mos along before i knew i was preggo. So it does depend on you knowing your body. If you don't get your period still i would say make dr appt because you could be preggo.
