Most OTC pregnancy tests won't test positive until you're 4 weeks pregnant. My suggestion is go to a doctor or to a local clinic like Planned Parenthood if you have one around you. There are some OTC tests that claim they can detect the pregnancy hormone up to 5 days before your missed period, but it all depends on the amount of hormone already in your body. Some women have taken pregnancy tests days before they give birth or right after they have and still don't show positive OTC pregnancy test results. Your best option is to go to your doctor if you have real reason to believe you're pregnant.
