  • most tests are accurate 3 or 4 days before your period- wait a couple of days

  • yes, in fact it could show up positive if taken too early if you miscarried or had a procedure done.

  • Yes. IF you conceived, the fertilized egg hasn't even had a chance to implant in the uterine lining, which is when the pregnancy hormone starts being produced. There's nothing there for a pregnancy test to pick up yet.

  • I know waiting is terrible, but focus on something else and then test.

  • Yes it is to soon. I would wait either a few more days or until you know you were supposed to start and missed. don't stress wondering. relax and pray about it.

  • I know it's very hard to wait to test, but even the best test may not give you an accurate reading until AF is overdue. Most pregnancy websites recommend waiting at least one week after AF is late to test. I know that sounds like a million years, but it's worse getting a sea of BFNs or even worse to have a positive result only for it to be a chemical pregnancy (which most of us never know about because we don't test at all).

  • If your period is 10 days away you would have just ovulated within the last week. If you got pregnant it might not even have implanted yet. It is definitley way too early.
