  • take the early pregnancy test. (it says so on the box). Really, I would take any...and more than one and keep taking them if you are in doubt and havn't got your period.

  • Almost all of the HPT's can be used 4-5 days before your missed period... just look at the boxes. The BEST ones are usually the most expensive, but the cheap ones work fine too.

  • If you have got the money go for it, but read the small print, it says 55% accurate 5 days before and so on. Be patient and wait or buy a big box!

  • u could, doesnt garauntee u though. depends on how much of the hormones ur body is producing. i was taking EPT (which ur supposed to get a bfp with 5 days before) and didnt ge tmy bfp til i was 10 days late.

  • You can, but it will probably not be that accurate. If its negative, I would wait a week and test again. Any test labeled as "early" is a good one to start with, they are more sensitive. First Responce Early Result is a good one as is the Dollar Tree brand (I'm serious). www.peeonastick.com is a good site to start with.
