Most people see a positive test on the day they miss their period or a few day after.

If you ovulated on day 19 you go on your normal luteal phase. If that's 14 days then test if AF hasn't shown up in 2 or 3 days time. If it's 15 test in 3 or 4 days, etc.

A normal luteal phase is between 12 and 16 days.

I'd give it 12 days at absolute minimum after O, but be aware it may be up to day 20 to show pos. Good luck!

I just conceived on 3rd round of clomid, got my bfp with an early hpt at 11dpo. Only tested so early as my discharge down there had changed mind you, usual advice is to wait until 14dpo.

Good luck.

With my first child, I got a BFP at 7dpo. My daughter was later, and I had missed my period. The three other pregnancies (miscarried) all ranged from 7-10dpo for + test, but it all really depends on the test, and when implantation occurred etc. I am a test addict so I buy the dollar store cheapies for day to day testing at about 7dpo, and then if I think I see a line, I go and buy a more expensive one, like a digital. good luck
