starfish0116:  What really matters is how many days past ovulation you are, rather than how soon until your period is due.  Those “up to 6 days before your missed period” estimates are all based on averages of women’s cycles, not how your cycle works.  Do you know when you ovulated?  Generally, you will not get a positive pregnancy test before 8DPO (days past ovulation).  This isn’t universal (earlier BFPs happen), but this is because the average range for implantation is 6-12DPO, then it takes about two more days for there to be enough hcg in your urine to turn a test positive.  Knowing when you ovulate is a really useful thing in terms of knowing when you can accurately test.

SadieBee:  Yes to this! I knew my cycle pretty well and I have a pretty short luteal phase. So 6 days before my missed period would have been about 5-6 days past ovulation – way too soon to get a positive.
