    As the title says really, how early is too early? What's the minimum you would recommend to wait before testing? I have no idea if I ovulated but had the bedroom jiggy on Saturday. I am extremely impatient and want to test right now but obviously not much point if it's too early!

    The chances of getting a positive test before AF is due is quite low, so personally as hard as it is I would wait until the first day of missed AF x

    It does usually help if you know OV, because then you can determine a rough date of implantation etc..

    I conceived on 9th Jan and only now getting faint positives and I implanted early my first BFP was 9 DPO, 18th so 9 days after my OV 10 days after actual DTD. Id wait 2 weeks from conception and then do a FRER.

    Ages I know..

    Good luck.

    I have had faint but BFP at 9DPO both times I have fallen pregnant.

    I think the average is 12DPO.

    Good luck xxx

    I didn't test until 14 DPO and I didn't get my period, and even at 14 DPO the line was reaaally faint, so even if it is negative at 9-10 DPO, doesn't mean you're out, I am sure mine would have been neg at 9PO had I tested... good luck!!

    My test was negative at 9dpo, faint positive on a OneStep 10mui at 10dpo, and clearly positive from 11dpo on frer. Try and wait until at least 10dpo on a sensitive test. Good luck :)
