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?

When do you take a pregnancy test?

Before I even Test....

Here is a strange one for you all,

AF was due according to MMC on 6/19 but i figured not until 6/23 cause I have been known to be late. I started getting PMS symptoms on 6/23 they were mild and only lasted for about 8 days. On 6/28 I had moderate cramping and I noticed thick clear jelly like mucus that night which lead me to believe i had ovulated late in my cycle. On 6/29 had mild cramping and the cramping was gone by Monday. I still do not have my period. My CM is lotiony like but does not show up on my underwear. My right breast seems to be mildly sore off and on along with tingling sensations in my lower adomen but that could be in my head or it could be from me being constipated and having gas. I was going to test on 7/7 but I was thinking maybe I should wait until 7/15 to test if indeed i ovulated late and my period is really just late?

I talked to my mother last night and she told me to take a test because my LMP was on 5/13. I am not on any birthcontrol and do not want to get my hopes up. What do you think?

ok ladies here it is, i was on depo for nearly 10 years, i had my last injection in sept of 2007 and decided in december that i would not renew.well i got my first period after the missed shot in february. and it came right on time in march, april and may. my cycle was supposed to start 8 days ago and nothing yet, my boobs hurt and i have had slight cramping. bc i have been on the depo for so long i know that my hormones could still be adjusting but do you think it's too soon to take a test or could i actually be pregnant???

5 days late-to test or not to test

well, ever since my fiance and i have been trying i test early. i have that syndrome one of the girls on here talked about, POASS-pee on a stick syndrome. now, i'm not that bad. i usually test and leave it alone and it eases my mind and AF shows up as usual. i want to be preggo, but i was on depo for a year so i'm very discouraged about getting preggo within the first year. this month i'm 5 days late and tested neg at two days late. my last period was 25 april so, i should have started on the 25th of this month. i have started as late as the 1st, but that was 4 months ago and since then i've had normal periods. i had some slight spotting during this month. a week after my last period which my mom wrote off as old blood-so did my best friend who's had two kids. and then about a week before my regular period was supposed to start. i thought maybe that was the period, but, it was pinkish, very very light (as in it was only there when i wiped) and only lasted 1 day. so i'm going to take the advice of a lot of girls on here and just continue to wait until the two week mark, or aunt flo shows up.

HPT procrastinator

I am TTC and 5 days late. I feel certain that I could take a HPT and know for sure one way or the other. But instead I put it off, I almost can't bear another BFN. This weekend is our anniversary and it would be so amazing to find out that we are excecting. Since I'm doing all the typical TTC things, prenatals, no caffiene etc I'd almost rather wait another week or so to test just incase it's negative I don't want it to bring us down on our anniversary! I'm just trying to stay positive, God Will Provide. Thanks for listening.

Pregnancy tests during the TWW.

Unfortunately I am one of those women that starts testing way to early. I usually start 9DPO. That is horrible, I know but I go crazy during the TWW. I believe that I want it so bad that I just cannot control myself, and I spend so much money on pregnancy tests it is not even funny.

Last month I got AF and I still tested hoping that it was implantation. Of course, it was not. It is better if you wait till at least 12DPO. The disapointment that I get is so intense only seeing one line every day, sometimes twice a day.
