Ideally, a pregnancy test is best taken with a fresh early morning sample of urine as the collection overnight contains more amount of hormone than other times. The HPTs usually give a positive result about 3-5 days after a missed period. If you want to check for pregnancy even before the next cycle, you should get serum beta- hCG measurement which is confirmatory. Please contact your healthcare provider for further advice. Take care.
