What is the right time to take pregnancy test?

I took 2 pregnancy test and both came back negative. A few days later I had a dream that told me to go back and look at them and sure enough they were positive. I took another and it came back negative but I checked it maybe an hour later and it was positive. I decided to take three more but they were negative! I need help! I don’t know if they were false positives or if they were right and maybe its just to early for them to accurately pick up a positive

Hello,

The right time to do a pregnancy home test is at least 5days of delayed period. If all tests come negative and only one positive then most likely you are not pregnant. It was possibly a false positive test. If you want to sure do a b HCG blood test.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
