Ideally you should wait until your period is late, that would assure a most accurate test, that being said, the stress of not knowing can sometimes get to you, there are certain tests on the market that allow you to test up to 4 days before your period is due, but if you get a negative, there still is a chance you may be pregnant and it's just too early to tell..
