Many home pregnancy tests claim to be accurate as early as the first day of a missed period — or even before. You’re likely to get more accurate results, however, if you wait until after the first day of your missed period. 1 If you take a test too early, you may get a false negative.
If you have a negative test but think you might be pregnant, repeat the test one week after your missed period or call our office to schedule an appointment with our nurse, Tresa. Our offices offer free pregnancy testing and ultrasound to confirm pregnancy. Tresa and talk you through the timing and testing so you get accurate results.
