Best Answer

First Response Early Result Pregnancy Test I used an EPT test four days before I expected my period, and there was a very dark cross stating I was pregnant. I used the First Response one day later and it was negative, then I tried the First Response again on the 4th day, (one day before my period) and it was positive. I prefer the EPT.

Yes. I always recommend testing over just waiting or being in denial. The sooner you test the sooner you know.

If you are not pregnant, then that is a sooner relief for you if you are not expecting the pregnancy.
