I always bought tons of the dollar store pregnancy tests so I wouldn't feel bad about peeing on them all too early and wasting them. It was so exciting to get a positive when I was sure it was too early.


Pregnancy tests are meant to be taken a few days after you miss your period. However, there are some out on the market that will detect pregnancy before your missed period. I experienced implant bleeding about a week before my period was due and took a regular pregnancy test and it cam out positive. It early would be right after sex up to about 2 weeks after sex. If the test comes up negative, then give it a few days and retest. Or wait until you miss your period and test again.
