Depending on the test. It is not as reliable as after you miss your period. Check the box, it will give you the % of accuracry. Also, may have not yet produced enough hcg and thereforemay not get an accurate result. Hope this helps.
Home pregnancy tests are designed to be used AFTER your missed period. Using it 2 weeks before a missed period could skew the results.
The soonest I have seen for a home pregnancy test is 5 days before your missed period.
IT may,it depends on when your period it expected. It is more accurate to take the pregnancy test at the most,Five days before your missed period. It will be most accurate to take the pregnancy test the day before your missed period.
No, a missed period is not complete confirmation of pregnancy. You should see a doctor, or at the least use a home pregnancy test.
Pregnancy can be determined by todays over the counter tests as early as 3-5 days after fetilization, which is roughly the same time as ovulation (egg release). Therefore, its a question of when the person ovulated, and not when the missed period is. Home pregnancy tests can be positive even before a missed period.
Most at home tests can detect a pregnancy as early as two weeks before a woman's missed period.
Probably not, unless you are pregnant with multiples.
Yes. Pregnancy tests may not show a positive result until right before or even days after your missed period.
Several home pregnancy tests advertise that they can detect the pregnancy hormone pretty accurately up to five days before your (missed) period. However, it is a good idea to follow it up with an additional home pregnancy test should you discover that you have indeed missed your period at its expected time (should you have regular cycles), just to be sure whether or not the first one was accurate.
You should take a pregnancy test shortly after your missed period. That is when a home pregnancy test is most effective. Although I have heard you can do a blood test at the doctor as soon as 2 weeks before your missed period.
While some pregnancy test can tell you up to 5 days before your missed period, it's always best in my opinion to wait until your missed period. I would say a few days after your next hopefully missed period.
There is that many home pregnancy tests these days that determine early pregnancy, test 5 - 10 days before a missed period, blah blah blah, my opinion, as anxious as you may be, is to wait til AFTER your missed period, then test, your pregnancy hormones will be higher, and you will get a more accurate result :) GoodLuck x
Some home pregnancy tests can give you an accurate answer up to 5 days before your missed period. The later you wait the more accurate the results. Save your money and just wait until you are late to test.
Five days after a missed period
some tests can tell you five to seven days before your next missed period
ASAP. Especially if you've already missed a period. Many of the newer meters can detect pregnancy before the first missed period. (or so they say)
The most accurate tests claim to have around an 80% accuracy rate five days before your missed period. The day you are supposed to have your period the accuracy goes up and it goes up even further days after your missed period.
store bought pregnancy tests say they show results about 4-5 days before a missed period.
Considering home pregnancy tests can detect it up to five days before your missed period, you can take one as soon as you realize you're late.
a week after your missed period
Home pregnancy tests are able to detect the pregnancy hormone hCG up to 5 days before your missed period. So the earliest you could possibly get a true reading from the test is 5 days before you start (or would have started if you end up being pregnant) your period.
it means that you are pregnant. a home pregnancy test can even tell you your pregnent as soon as 5 days BEFORE your missed period.
If you missed your period it's time for a home pregnancy test
A woman is generally a couple of weeks into her pregnancy before any real signs occur. Unfortunately, these early symptoms of pregnancy are much like that of an upcoming period. However, a home pregnancy test can detect the pregnancy hormone HCG as early as 4 days before your missed period -- depending upon which test you use. A blood sample can be taken by your doctor to detect pregnancy even sooner. A woman is generally a couple of weeks into her pregnancy before any real signs occur.
