It should say on the box of the particular brand you are using, but usually you can take it 4 to 5 days before you expect to start your period. But, be wary of negative results. With my first pregnancy, I took an early test and got a (correct) positive. But, with my second, I took the test early and got a negative, but ended up being pregnant after all. As hard as it is to wait, it's best to wait until you've missed a period.

I take the test between 2 days prior to a day after my missed period. I have to find out right away so I can get on hormones to stay pregnant.

No one can give you a definite answer. With my first two pregnancies I took a test and it was positive. I went to the doctors and they said blood work showed I was two weeks along. With this current pregnancy I thought I was pregnant for about 2 weeks but debated before I took the test because I have a disease which makes pregnancy near impossible. It took me a few weeks to get into the doctor but by the time I got in I was 6 weeks along. I believe that most labels on the tests tell you within the first week of missing your period you can test. In all of my pregnancies I never missed my period so .. just depends on you
