Home Pregnancy tests: Home pregnancy tests are getting more and more accurate and can detect pregnancy after a certain amount of time has passed. Women can have a short period-like time when the fertilized egg implants on the uterine wall. It sounds like you are at the perfect time for testing.

Do I understand: your period is not due for another 4 to 6 days - if that is correct - I would just wait to see if you miss your period and if you do -test.
