They are pretty accurate, but she should wait a few days to a week and take another one. If she still hasn't had a regular period, she should go to a doctor. Stress can cause irregular periods. Good luck!

Hey there. I missed my period for a whole month and was 2 weeks late after that. I took the EPT test and 1 out of 2 came back positive. I went for a blood test today. From what I know the tests are accurate. The only way you will get a false reading is if you wait to long to read the test or if an evaporation line shows up. (an evaporation line is a faint colorless line that shows up if the test has been sitting to long. It some times can be read as a positive. so the only 100% sure way to know is wait a while then get a blood test.

Hope it helped.

Yes. It depnds on how soon the pregnancy test was done after a 'missed' period. The longer after the missed period, the more accurate the results. Some pregnancy tests are designed to detect pregnancy earliesrthan others. A blood test is the most accurate test for pregnancy.

for a most accurate result try a test on the day or after your period is missed

4 days after a missed period, a serum hCG will be accurate - 7 to 14 days after a missed period the urine hCG will be accurate.

nope..sometimes the pregnancy test can't detect...but if you wait until your missed period, they are more accurate. A blood test done at the doctors are very accurate.

Most of the newer test let you test as early as 5 days before your missed period. The closer to your missed period or even after will give you a more accurate answer

Taking a pregnancy test seven days before a missed period won't be accurate.

2 weeks or after the missed period.

Most pregnancy tests are accurate day one of your missed period, if your test is negative retake it in 3 to 7 days.

User Avatar

If taken properly you should have accurate results by this time.

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.

The most accurate time to take a pregnancy test is 3 weeks after you had intercourse. Many HPTs claim to be accurate on the day of your missed period, but that is doubtful. If you wait a week after your missed period, you should get accurate and unambiguous readings.

No. You should take the test about a week after your missed period for it to be compleatly accurate.

User Avatar

You can but the test will most likely be wrong. You need to wait at least 4 weeks after you have missed your period to get an accurate test.

User Avatar

Yes. Most tests claim 99% accuracy from the first day of your missed period and beyond.

pregnancy test is done if a woman missed her periods.

User Avatar

If pregnancy has in fact occurred a test will show an accurate response 2 months after a missed period.

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.

If you had a regular period after unprotected sex, you are not pregnant.If you had sex after that period you may be pregnant.If you are unsure you can use a regular pregnancy test available at any pharmacy, they are very accurate if you missed your period already. If you did not miss your period yet, the pregnancy test is less accurate.

As you don't say precisely to which ClearBlue you are referring a visit to this site should answer your questions. http://www.clearplan.com/ According to this site a ClearBlue pregnancy test is 99% accurate if done on the day of a missed period or later.

I took a pregnancy test the day after I missed my period, and it was right. That's the soonest I ever took one.

User Avatar

Taking a pregnancy test a few days after your expected missed period will give you more accurate results.

User Avatar

Take a pregnancy test. Wait until you have missed your period because you need the hormones to be present to have the test be accurate.

User Avatar

Fairly reliable, uaually a positive is pregnant but a negative is sometimes only 50% right. I would get a test done by the doctor asap.

Store bought pregnancy tests (OTC) are most accurate at the beginning of the missed period.
