  • EPT And 7 days before period

  • When you miss your period. I preferred the dollar store tests, which were accurate for both of mine. You can get an early response test that can detect pregnancy up to 5 days before your missed period (if the fertilized egg implanted soon enough), but it has to say that on the box. Dollar store is cheaper, and if you wait until you miss your period, you don't waste money taking tests if you do start your period.

    Unfortunately, there's no way to tell how much hCG your body will produce. While some women don't get a positive test for weeks after ovulation, most women can get a positive within a week of missing their period. So if you miss your period, take a test. If it's negative, wait a week and take another one if your period still doesn't start. If it's still negative, and you still don't get your period, call the doctor.

  • First Response was always best for me, 5 days before I missed. The digital would read negative where as the First Response was always correct
