It is better to do it after the period has been missed- more likely to be accurate then

I'm 4 days late with my period but started today. But it's very little and not that dark. We haven't had intercourse but he was there. I wondered if Icould be pregnant? I don't have sore breasts or anything.

wait for a missed period, or do a blood test 2 days before you should get your period

HPT are usually only accurate 1 or 2 days after missing a period. If you want a very accurate test go for a blood test.
