what is the day I can POAS? Is it 9-10 days after ovulation? Is it 6 days before you next period? I don’t know my exact ovulation date. It might be yesterday or today or tomorrow. I’m going off a happy face on my digital OPK which appeared yesterday.Soo when do you say I can test?
Also what is the exact name iof the best test I should buy – the first response? I feel like there are so many kinds I freeze in the store!

get a FRER pink dye test.
i wait until AF is due but you can test as early as 8 DPO.

@confusedbridehere: If you’re going to test early I’d only use a FRER (first response)
I found this website a help when deciding to test: http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/pregnancy-test/results-by-day-past-ovulation.php

@confusedbridehere: Just wait until the day AF is due or late.

@ajillity81: +1 I actually wait until AF is due. It avoids speculation and seeing negatives can get to be a drag (worse than AF) after a while!

Yeah, if you’re going to test early, I’d wait until at least 10-12 DPO. Even then, it can be hard to get a BFP on a pink test. But really, they say 18 DPO. I’d be 3-4 days late at 18 DPO so that would never happen. haha

I tested three days before AF was due, and it BARELY showed a positive!

@confusedbridehere: I got my BFP on 10DPO. It was light but still there on the FRER. I wouldn’t test any sooner than that.

@confusedbridehere: If you can hold out, I would wait until about 14DPO, or your missed period (whichever comes first). And right, First Response Early Result is the one most of us prefer, but many of us also look to confirm with a Clear Blue Digital (which is not as sensitive and wouldn’t show positive as soon as the FRER).

I tested the day after my missed period and got a negative, then got a bfp 3 days later! I would wait until after a missed period to avoid wasting tests.

I waited until about 14 dpo, and my period was maybe 2 days late? Hard to know since my cycles varies in length. I was so glad I waited because I was sick of wasting tests and seeing BFN, and my BFP was SUPER dark, it was awesome! But now I’m wondering how early I could’ve tested…. 🙂

When you TTC, your missed period date could actually not be your missed period date…your cycle lengths can change +/- greatly especially with TTC…
so I usually don’t go by that…

@confusedbridehere: I think you are best to wait until you miss your period.

Why do you want to test asap? Are you some special diet and want to break some rules, etc?
I suggest don’t test if possible. It’s a waste of money/time/emotions. When AF is due and doesn’t show wait abt 2 days or so to make sure AF wasn’t just late. Then test.
