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?

My Opinion

Personally I think that you should test either way 2-3 weeks after your period.

Pregnancy Testing 123

When we were TTC I became a serious POAS addict!!! I would test days before AF was even due!! It became frustrating and really disappointing, not to mention a waste of $$$. I had tested on CD 26 of a 28 day cycle when i got my BFP... it was at night with a dollar store test too!!! I would definitely recommend waiting till AF is late, but I know how hard it is!!!!!

When to take a Test?!

I usually take a test if I'm about a week or two late. Or if I seem to have any symptons of pregnancy a few days after I sould've got my period.

TEST TEST TeST!!!

well, i'm a tester :) I had an IUD taken out in June of 2006.. My OB/GYN was positive i would conceive .. well not yet! I am on day 31 and i have taken 3 OTC pregnancy tests all NEG!! It doesn't make sense to me.. i understand it's hit or miss... But my first child was because i forgot to take my pill on time...my second child took a while because i was coming off of Depo. But now i don't get it. I have been tracking my cycles and when i'm prime for a child and nothing...I am going to try and test again in a week (if i can wait!) Good Luck everyone :)

I'd rather dream that I cud be pregnant than know early!

I'm a Dreamer - I like to live with the hope that I cud be pregnant as we speak!

I agree that I give in and take the pregnancy test 2-3 days before missed periods most of the time. But here is my rational reasion why we shouldn't:

1. Most of the women have anxiety due to PMS before we get our periods

2. If we take an early pregnancy test and it comes out negative we are adding that disappointment to the PMS anxiety and it becomes more tearful

3. Instead, during the two week wait period I tell myself that I could be pregnant, browse baby product websites or read ttc websites where women tell their experience that they had all symptoms of AF before they found out they were pregnant - helps me stay positive that I cud also be pregnant this cycle even when I get my PMS cramps

4. If I eventually do end up getting my periods - I can handle it better because my mood instantly cheers up always since my PMS is over. Even before I started ttc I wud feel an instant surge of relief when my period starts - think it has something to do with the serotonin hormones that get released when u get your periods.

5. Then it is just a matter of 5 more days before we can start trying and thus I can start dreaming that I cud be little bit pregnant as Im tying this.

hey it's not as if I'm gonno have wine to drown my disappointment even if I the pregnancy test says negative, because Im gonna have a littly bit hope that the test was wrong and I cud still be pregnant until I get my AF!!!

ugggghhhh

My husband and I have been TTC for over a year now with no such luck. My cycle has always been very consistent until recently, 26 days. Today is day 32 and I started to spot this morning. I used to be a test taker every month...about 4 days before my period was due. This month I kept telling myself to wait because it seems as if once I POAS AF comes. So I was supposed to get AF last Sunday and it has been a killer week of thoughts. I didn't tell my husband as we want this so bad. If I wouldn't have started AF today, I was going to test tomorrow what would have been 7 days late. It is very disappointing. I just don't understand why it is so hard for us ... ALL OF US to concieve! Baby Dust to all of you!
