  • Take one in the morning with first morning urine. Yes I would take one.

  • Yes. You took it way too soon

  • Yes, I would take another one first thing in the morning. The first morning urine contains the highest levels of hormone, if it's there. Good luck!

  • Taking a test 5 days before your missed period only has true results for less than 5%. So I would say test again! GL!!

  • I would, it wouldn't hurt, but dont think about it, last month I was 3 weeks late and I thought for sure I was preggers, then I started. My Dr said it was because I was stressing out about getting preggers, so have fun dont think about it!

  • I think you shold wait a little bit longer. I took a test right after I missed my period and it was negative. That was after Dec 6th, and I took another one a week later, and it still came out negative. I took one last week and it came out positive. So I'm pregnant. But you have to be a little bit patient. I know, you can't wait, that's what happend to me, but, you'll manage to hold on for a couple weeks more!!!
    Good Luck!
