Pregnancy Pregnancy

Best early detector pregnancy test?

Has anyone had luck with the 5 day before your missed period pregnancy tests? It says the success rate is about 50% 5 days before your missed period so I dont see how those tests are all that great in terms of accuaracy.

Also, if I take the test the day of my missed period, eg. Day 28 of my cycle, that should be pretty accurate, right?

What are people's favorite brands of tests? Are generic just as good!?


THANKS!!!

I took 2 generic tests from the dollar store and they both came out positive and were right. My mother works in ob/gyn dept. and the doctors there do not rely on the tests you take 5 days before your missed period.  If it works for you let us know.

I took an ept 7 days before my missed period and it came back negative but I was feeling sick, had heartburn so I took another one from the dollar store 5 days before I was suppose to have my period and tahdah..pregnant!!  With Twins!  I don;t think it matters what kind you take..they all should work.

Did you all take the test in the morning with your first pee like they say to if you're taking it before your missed period???

Some are made more sensitive than others, but you might get a false negative if your body isn't producing enough of the hormone that early on.  I always liked First Response, but with my 3rd pregnancy the line was so faint I needed reassurance.  So I bought that digital one (I think it was Clearblue?) and it said "Pregnant."  It was not only sensitive, but gave me the definite answer I was looking for a few days before my missed period.
