When do you take a pregnancy test?
At what point during your cycle do you take a pregnancy test? If you are trying to conceive do you wait the Two Week Wait, or do you start testing earlier? Or, if you're not trying to conceive, how late are you when you start testing?

Wait 2 wks before testing - It's hard but must be done!
From conception to implantation can take nearly 2 weeks, so the pregnancy hormone usually won't show in a urine test until then. So there's really no point testing until 2 weeks after you ovulate.It's horrid to wait, but testing any earlier and one of 2 things could happen: - you'll get a negative result but could still be "pregnant" - i.e. egg's been fertilised but hasn't fully implanted so you don't have enough pregnancy hormone. then it's a bit of shock later on! - you'll get a positive result but then may get a very heavy period - then you'll know that the egg was fertilised but didn't implant properly so you've had a really early MC Both are not nice. So I say wait, if you're pregnant, YAY! If not, there's lots of fun to be had trying the next month Good luck everyone, baby dust! EJTTC
