  • About 7-10 days after you were due to get your period is a good time.

  • You could take one now if you're really curious. I've gotten positive test results 4 days before my period was due. Otherwise, if you don't want to waste a test wait until the day after it's due or longer.

  • I agree you could test now but it would be more accurate in 4-5 days.

  • You can test right after your missed period if you are sure of the dates

  • they have alot of test out for early detection if u really want to know go for it. buy a pack that has two test so you can take one now and a week from now just in case you dont come on and if you do you can save the test for next month if your trying to conceive!!!good luck
