    Default What is the best pregnancy test?

    Hi everyone!
    I just wanted to get opinions on the best pregnancy test to get. I hear a lot of storeys about false positives so I was just wondering what is everyone's experience with different brands ?
    I am currently should have 5 days left before AF arrives and I would like to do a test soon but I am aware of the risks involved with false negatives and positives. Thanks

    This is my first pregnancy, I can't say this is the best pregnancy test but I used First Response and got a bfp 6 days before my period was due 😊

    I also used Internet cheapies and they worked 3 days before my period

    Another vote for First Response. Most accurate available. I also bought Internet cheapies but always double checked with FR.

    Well BFN , will wait a few more days and see. Can I ask have I tested in the window of possible detection? My AF is due the 28th and today is the 22nd.

    I think it's likely too early. I personally wait until AF is late (far more likely to be accurate), however you can absolutely get a positive earlier. Use your first morning urine as soon as you wake (more concentrated) for early testing. Give it a few more days or you might just be wasting your money.
