  • It depends what kind of test you buy. Some will work up to 4 days before you missed period, but you pretty much have to know exactly when that is. I used one two days before I was expecting mine and it worked.

    We are trying right now, so I am trying to wait until Monday to take the test. I bout one of the early detectors. Just read the package info and it will tell you when to take it for best results. Oh and if you are right on your missed period, it is better to take the test first thing in the morning.
