  • If you are always regular, you should take one when you get up tomorrow.

  • You can take it now. The really good tests can detect the pregnancy hormone at 1 day after a missed period.

  • You can definitely take one now. My preference, even though it costs more, is the ClearBlue Easy with the digital read-out. If you're trying to have a baby, wait a little longer (another week, maybe two) so that you can be sure to get a positive result.
