They are pretty accurate, but they work better after you are at least a day late for your period. Wait 3-5 days and take another test. If it is still negative, you may want to go see your doctor.

Yes depends on the test, some respond within 1 min if you are and can detect the pregnancy hormone as early as four days after your missed period, other times you have to wait a week or 2.

yes but some people wont have enough of the pregnancy hormone 5 days before their missed period so i wouldnr depend on it maybe you should wait the day your period is due and take it from there
