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.

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!

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