How early can I test?

Of course, you are physically able to take a pregnancy test at any time. You can take a pregnancy test immediately after intercourse if you so choose, but it will not be accurate. The rule of thumb to remember is, the closer it is to the time when your period is due, the more accurate your results will be.

Experts have said that a pregnancy test taken before the first day of missed period is somewhere around 20% accurate. That is not very accurate at all, so all pregnancy test manufacturers urge women to wait as long as possible to test.

What makes clearblue easy different?

Clearblue Easy stands apart from other pregnancy tests because their tests are designed to be used from the day that a woman expects her period. Their website says that you can use their tests for up to five days before your expected period, although it does caution that if you are pregnant, there might not be enough pregnancy hormones built up in your body to provide a positive result yet. It is common to get a false negative result when you test too early. If you do get a negative result and you have tested early, wait a few days and then test again.

Is there a set number of days?

If you don’t know the date that your period is expected, it can be hard to know when you should take a pregnancy test. This is also true if your periods are irregular and you don’t have a clear idea of when they should start. If this is the case for you, Clearblue Easy recommends waiting at least 19 days from the day that you had unprotected sex to take an at home pregnancy test.

If you still think you might be pregnant, wait three more days and then test again, because you may have tested too early. Of course, if there is ever a time that you think that your at home pregnancy test results are incorrect, make an appointment with a doctor so you can get a blood test or a test at a doctor’s office to determine whether or not you are pregnant for sure.
