It says on the box or in the directions how accurate they are at said day prior to missed period. I wanna say at 5 days before they are 45-50% accurate.

i have same situation here...my due is 25th of january yet till now my menstruation didn't came. i took pregnancy test 2 days after my due, it shows 2 lines yet the 2nd line is really light. so im confused too.the only symptoms i feel is tenderness of breast and sometimes cramping..so until now i wait for another week.if this week no menstruation showed up i see a doc for a lab test.

It is suppose to be a positive even if your line is really light..mine is always really light even days after my missed period.  It depends on how much hormone your body is producing.  Those early tests never work for me. Good luck!

I took mine like 2 days before my missed period and it was obviously positive.

If you get an early one, get one that says pregnant/not pregnant. They are most accurate and then you don't have to worry about reading lines. Good luck

Most over the conter pregnancy tests (despite what they say) won't detect until your atleast a month pregnant, is what the dr told me.

I used one of those test and it came back a faint + on a Wednesday and my period wasn't due till that Sunday, it came negative on the cheap dollor test till a few days after my period, but the early responce just got darker and darker :) I'm almost 19 weeks now :)

I always used the dollar store ones. I could get 8 for the price of one and they are just as accurate.
