Maybe 4 days sooner than that if you buy the special clear blue digital one.  Always test first pee in the AM, if you get one that is not digital, even a faint line is a preggo line!

@SamanthaLovesJames:  In about 10 days (if you are FOR SURE ovulating right now), you may be able to see a positive result from a First Response Early Result test, as long as you take it with first morning urine. If it’s negative, wait a couple days and test again. GL!

Also, perfectly healthy, fertile, people have a 20% chance of pregancy each cycle, even with PERFECT intercourse timing. So don’t worry if it doesn’t happen this month, it can definitely take several months. How did you calculate that you are ovulating? Using temperatures? Ovulation tests? Cervical mucus?

@SamanthaLovesJames:  Yay for smiley face! I use those too =) So that means that you can ovulate within the next 24-72 hours, so continue to have sex once a day for the next three days =) So I would say test in like 13 days.

Yep, OPKs should give you a 12-48 hour heads up that you’ll be ovulating soon, and to get BDing.  I’d say you can test in 11 days if you’re not going to get too sad about potentially facing a false negative.  But if you want to save pee sticks, and be certain in your result, I’d do 14/15 days with first morning urine.
