Test the day period is due

Posted by: hopeful38 on Mon Jan 4, 2010

I can't tell you without gagging how many pregnancy tests I've taken when ttc. It is the most agonizing time from the moment you ov until you either see af or a bfp; however, I have learned that it really doesn't make sense to test prior to the day your next period is due (if af rears her ugly head before you test then you wouldn't have wasted a pt). I have purchased pt's that say you can test up to 5 days before your missed period and I have never had success with these even when I end up with a bfp. I even tested with one of these one day before my period was due and it was a bfn then the very next day with the same brand I got a bfp. So I would suggest waiting until at least the morning that your period is due and then test with your first urine upon waking. As a side note, I found that there are tests you can purchase online that supposedly give you a bfp 7 dpo if you conceived. However, I have no personal experience with this.

I am currently ttc after having a tubal reversal sept. 3 2009. I am on cd 21 of a 26 d cycle. So I am obsessed but refused to test until cd 26. It helps to have a hobby that you are passionate about to distract you.
