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

  • When you actually miss it.

  • 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.
