A 19-year-old female asked:
When is the most accurate time to test for pregnancy? early in the morning? middle of the day? late at night? and, what week can you get the most accurate result like week 2, 3, or 4 after conceiving?

Basics: The first morning pee is usually the most concentrated & likely to show positive in pregnancy. Once the first menses is late, there will usually be detectable factors on pee to test positive. That is usually ~2wks after conception. Later testing would also show positive.
