I am wondering if I am pregnant. How early can I take a home pregnancy test to find out? The waiting is killing me! Thanks!

Hi Anon,

When is your next period due? Usually it is recommended not to test until you have actually missed a period for best results. An early response test can be used up to 5 days before your missed period but only if you have a regular cycle and you are 100% sure of the dates, otherwise you may have to re-test within a week if the results are doubtful.

I would advise to purchase an early response test but wait until the first day of your missed period.

Good Luck!
