I always wait to see if I’m late before testing. This is our 17th cycle trying and I think I’ve tested 3 times. I just don’t want to waste a test or the heartbreak of a BFN (AF is enough of a heartbreak!) I totally understand wanting to know early though so really I’m not offering much for pro/cons! maybe wait until 13DPO? Good luck to you!

@Sbee82:  I always test at 8DPO with internet cheapies, and continue to every morning until AF shows. I have a short LP (10 days) so that’s one reason why. But my thought is, I fully 100% expect BFN’s, so when I see them negative I just brush it off. It doesn’t make me sad to see them (I mean a little, but it doesn’t crush my hope). When I get that positive, I’ll be through the roof for sure.

Also, I’m in the “I’d Rather Know” boat when it comes to chemical pregnancies/miscarriages. Often people who wait until missed AF are avoiding the pain of CP’s, but for me, I’d rather know that I had one as opposed to the “Head In The Sand” approach.

I think it all depends on if you can handle seeing BFN after BFN.

FWIW, cuz I think it varies with how long you’ve been trying, this is my 10th cycle NTNT, 9th TTC and first cycle on Clomid.

I’ve tested early at least once for the past 7 cycles. still no BFP. I think the longer i go, the less likely i am to test early. I’m just gonna wait it out from now on until at least 14dpo
