I need some info. How early does an hpt generally give accurate results? I mean, I was supposed to start my period today, so now would be too early, right? Any info you can give me would be much appreciated.
Hello! you can test the first day you miss your period. Sometimes alot of women donot have enough hcg in their urine to detect the pregnancy so if you do get a negative result wait another week or two and retest and if you still donot get af and your urine still shows neg make a doctors appointment and ask for a blood test this is more accurate and can be detected 8-10 days after conception. Good Luck
The majority of the tests are greater than 99% accurate on the first day after a missed period. Then there is the one where you can test 3 days before your period is due. Those say they are accurate in 52% of women at 3 days before the period due date. Of course I was one of the 48%...got a BFN and was indeed pregnant. But for most people the day AF is due would not be too soon to test with any test.

You can test in the evening. But you are right, first morning urine it usually the strongest. When you buy the tests they usually come 2 or 3 to a box. I couldn't wait and tested later in the day. It was positive but showed only a light colored line. When I retested in the morning, it was still positive but the line was a darker shade. Good luck!
