How early can the digital test strip detect pregnancy before a missed period?

Answer

This is so debated, honestly! From my own experience and research, digital pregnancy tests and their strips are not as sensitive as regular pregnancy tests.

According to ClearBlue's website, it's most accurate on the day of the missed period, and it should be 99% accurate at that point. This is anecdotal and not scientific, but in my birth groups, I've noticed that most women aren't getting a positive on digital any sooner than two days before their expected period, and many of them even have to wait until the day of or after to get a "YES" on the digital test.
