How soon does the First Response pregnancy test work?

The FIRST RESPONSEEarly Result In-Stream Pregnancy Test is sensitive enough that most women have enough hCG to be detected as early as 6 days sooner than the day of their missed period (5 days before day of expected period). The amount of pregnancy hormone increases as pregnancy progresses.

Beside this, how accurate is early detection pregnancy test?

Many home pregnancy tests claim to be 99 percent accurate. However, research suggests that many home pregnancy tests are not sensitive enough to diagnose pregnancy in women who have recently missed a period. For the most reliable results, wait to take the test until one week after your missed period.

How accurate is a pregnancy test 5 days before missed period?

Currently, the earliest pregnancy test is First Response Early Response, which can be taken from 5 days before your period is due. But the accuracy of the test at that point is only 62% - not a lot more than tossing a coin. The other tests offer more than 99% accuracy on the day your period is due.
