  • first response is pretty accurate and its the one i took with all 3 of my pregnancies. i wasn't even late yet with my 3rd, but had that pregnant feeling, took that test and got a BFP.

  • I agree, first response is pretty accurate.

  • Yes there are but the accuracy is much lower. It goes up the closer to your period you are. So if you get a negative retest in 3 days.

  • It kinda depends, all I am saying is don't get too disappointed if it comes back neg, wait and test again in a few days.

  • You can't totally trust a negative 5 days before your period is due, but a positive is generally accurate. If you get a negative, test a couple of days later.

  • Yes there are tests like that. 5 days sooner is usually printed right on the box. Are they accurate?? IDK I always waited until I missed my cycle before I tested.

  • They always worked for me around the 5 day mark but I am sure that many get negatives when they are pregnant. I would think the closer to your missed period the better. I could just never wait and would try at that point and they always came out positive.
