3 days late for my period can i test at any time of day or only 1st pee?

There is of course a major chance im pregnant. DH and i do not use any type of protection. Im 3 days late and just wondering whether i can test at any time of the day now or if i must test first pee for accurate results?

  • You can test whenever you want to since you are late, they have the tests where there are 3 tests in it..try it different days at different times..they also have tests that you can take before your period is due. Also first pee has more of the chemicals that tell you more accurately if you are pregnant, I took mine at night and I was 2 days late and it said I was pregnant..here I am 17 wks later. I hope this has helped!

  • you can test up to 5 days before depending on the test. it's best with first morning urine. for the best results waiting a week after your missed period is best. some women don't produce high enough hormones to be read in the early stages.

  • The hormone has time to build up in your urine with the first morning pee, so that's why it's generally recommended to use the first morning pee. But some tests are more sensitive so any time will work. Also the later you are the more hcg you'll be producing, so being 3 days late you probably can test any time. If you get a neg try again in the morning.

  • 1st morning is the best. I am currently 11days late for my period and also my husband and I don't use any protection and I've taken two tests 1st thing in the morning on day 4 late and day 9 late and gotten "not pregnant" results both times so idk!

  • at this point any time of day should work... i got a + 9 days before my missed period with "not first morning pee"... just make sure you use a sensative test and hope for the best!
