Probably not: Most kits are sensitive to levels found in blood and urine starting on post-ovulation day 10. The question is what do you do if it is negative? Will you re-test?

Is it too early to take a pregnancy test when I'm only 3 days late? My last period was August 26 2014.

You mean July 26?: Considering today is August 25, 2014, I think you must have meant JULY 26, 2014! (or I'm in a time warp of some sort!). Anyways, I would usually recommend waiting at least a week after a missed period before taking a pregnancy test. Also, your test will be more accurate if you use the first urine of the day, since it will be the most concentrated. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex on Sunday night around 8 or 9 , I'm just now taking plan b (five days later). Is it too early to take a pregnancy test?

Yes: For the best chance of the test being accurate, you should wait until you are late for your period. Some tests claim they can tell if you are pregnant up to 5 days before you are supposed to get your period, but in my experience I have many patients get both false positives and false negatives from these. ...Read more

10 days before my period would you say its too early to take a pregnancy test? If so when is the best time to take one?

Later: hormones go up with increasing pregnancy. The lower the level, the more likelihood the test will be negative EVEN IF YOU ARE PREGNANT.
nobody building these tests expects someone to run it before their period is late, and so it is not validated, not expected to work before the period is actually late.
Wait at least 28 days past last period, or run it earlier, but believe a NEGATIVE ...Read more
