    I normally have a 28 day cycle, ovulate on CD15 and AF comes on CD28. I tested on CD29 I think!

    On average, my cycle is about 28 days, but I waited until I had missed my period to test, so I was at CD 30 when I got my BFP.

    I’m trying to remember – I’m pretty sure I ovulated on CD 17, and my period was due 12 days later (CD29).  That’s when I tested positive (negative on CD27/10DPO, didn’t test the next day but it was so faint at 12DPO that i’m sure it would have been negative).

    No idea, but I got both BFP’s at 13DPO. What CD each was, I have no idea as my cycles Varied

    I got my positive on cycle day 40, would have been a 44ish day cycle, I was 10DPO when I got my BFP ๐Ÿ™‚

    I ovulated on CD25 and got my clear BFP on CD36. So 11DPO and 3 days before AF was due.

    mine was CD34 but it was also my first test so I may have gotten a BFP sooner. It was also the day AF should have come.

    As you may be picking up from these responses, DPO (days past ovulation) is more important in terms of when you’re likely to test positive (or get an accurate test result) than your cycle day.  Different women ovulate at different times (and even the same woman can have a decent range for when she ovulates during different cycles).

    As SadieBee just said above, I think what you would want to know is DPO and not CD. Women have very different cycles so CD becomes almost irrelevant for someone who has really long cycles for example.

    I was 11DPO when I got my first BFP and it was quite dark so I probably would have gotten a positive test a few days before that. I ovulated on CD16 that cycle so my BFP would have been on CD27.

    Based off of a 28 day cycle, I technically would have tested positive on CD24. The better way to explain is, is that I got my BFP with my now 2yo at 8DPO. With my first, I tested positive 13DPO, and with my miscarriage it was 10DPO.

    I was absolutely blown over shocked that I tested positive so quickly with my 2yo. I think I took 6 or 7 tests because I couldn’t believe it. I had tracked and used OPKS, so I knew what my timing was exactly.

    LOL, it was I think CD 103, and 12DPO. Can’t believe my egg was still viable after that long, but here I am at 32 weeks pregnant ๐Ÿ™‚
