Hi just wondering how reliable people found the digital tests that can be used a few days before AF due? AF due Friday (ish - a bit irregular at moment). But...DH going overseas on Thursday for 10 days!! He thinks we should wait (or I should just show him the test on Skype!!) but if AF hasn't appeared by Thursday I'm wondering about testing anyway? If no AF not sure I can bear to wait 10 days...but would really like him to be here in person!

If testing before AF due I would use a first response test.
Digital (especially clear blue) require a higher amount of hcg to get a positive.
