    I would give it another 3 or 4 days. Depends how long your cycles are ofc, mine are always 28/29 days so I always know when I am due to ovulate etc.

    You can go loopy going by other peoples results and then seeing bfns. I would suggest waiting till 15dpo which is normally the day of your missed period to get a result. I'm determined to wait next time I'm testing. If you can cope with waiting 8 days you can wait 15 x

    I usually test from 10/11dpo with a cheapie and if I think I see anything I try a first response the next day. Although I agree waiting until af is due is more sensible - I just can't seem to manage to wait! I never tested with my son until I was 5 weeks, god knows how I managed that xx

    I think testing early make you feel better for the bfief moment you poas but from that point on your just counting down the days to get to 15-18dpo, even if it's a :bfp: especially if you've had a chemical in the past.

    My friend will be testing after TTC for the first time and I've told her to wait, next time I'll take my own advice too x

    Good advice pemsy! I'm 16 DPO and AF is 4 days late. Tested 12 and 14 DPO and got BFN's....even though the first test wasn't a very sensitive test and the second time I tested in the late afternoon after peeing all day, so could have been too diluted...it broke my heart a little bit every time no second line appeared. I'm waiting now for a few more days, using a FRER test and FMU. Leave it as long as possible....every day AF doesnt turn up and u continue to have symptoms is a bonus!
