  • its better to test in the morning, because you have a higher level of the hormone that tells you that your pregnant. although you can test at night too, but you have a better chance in the morning.

  • Nope, the hormones are usually stronger for some reason, it's more for early testing

  • No -- I have taken test at all times of the day and if it positive, it will be positive no matter when you take it. How late ar you? If you are late enough, the test will come up however it needs to come up.

  • You don't have to, but if you're testing before your missed period you should.

  • It's recommended, but not necessary. The thing is you slept all night so your urine is highly concentrated first thing in the am. So if the HCG is there it will be in it's strongest concentration in the am.
