It is best to wait to see if you actually GET your period. HCG

(the hormone that home pregnancy tests pick up) isn't present in

the urine until 7-10 day after ovulation/implantation. There are

some tests that you can take 5 days prior to the day of your

period, but are not as accurate. To get a true reading you should

test the first day's urine, the day of or anfter your missed
