  • It's acurate--I used it with all 3 of my pregnancies. I'd wait until you miss your period the first day to take it--that's when I took mine.

  • Don't be duped into thinking that the more expensive name brand tests are more accurate. I had two tests with my last pregnancy. A clear blue easy and a DOLLAR TREE, yes that's right, $1. They were both positive. They were both accurate.

  • Depends on your hormone levels, wait until a missed period,

  • I've never been able to take a test before my missed period because it comes back negative even though I've been pregnant. Take it the day of or the day after your missed period. My last 2 pregnancy's I've had were tested from the dolalr store and they were both positive. The E.P.T test I took came back positive and I wasnt pregnant. false positive. I'm sticking with the dollar store brands

  • As long as it is outdated or what not you can use any test. Even the dollar store. Just depends on your Homone levels. Good Luck!
