Patient :How accurate are home pregnancy tests 5 days after a missed period? My girlfriend is very regular but is now 6 days late on her period. She took a ClearBlue home pregnancy test yesterday and it came back negative, but we are still panicking because she is generally never late. Should we have confidence in the results of the test? The box says 99% accurate after this much time but I've read online that it could actually be much lower than that.
