  • I've heard you should wait 2 weeks. A false negative could result before then, because the HCG level can be below assay range of the test.

  • U wanted to know the earliest. It is 6 days before u r supposed to get your period. Obviously though it is better to wait until u are late.

  • After your next expected cycle. It would be way too soon to take it now. It would be negative.
