Hello. : Hello. Often you get can positive result the day you miss your period. However, sometimes even if you are pregnant, the HCG level is not high enough to trigger a positive result. In that situation, you can repeat the test in seven days or less. There is also an early test which can be used prior to missing your period.

Pregnancy test: Home test should be done 4-5 days after a missed period. Blood test for HCG level may be done a day after missed period. A negative result on a test done too early doesn't exclude pregnancy.
