For a HPT (home pregnancy test), many now say they can detect pregnancy as early as 3 days before your missed period. I would caution you to do this though as many times you do not have enough hormone in your system to have a reliable test.

My personal suggestion is to wait until the day after your missed period, at the earliest. If you have very regular cycles, this may be a good time. If it is negative, wait a few more days and try again. If your cycles are not regular, I would suggest waiting a week after you expect your cycle to start.
