Try to hold off. If you get a false bfn it can be discouraging. I'm a poas addict so it's hard for me to wait but I.m going to try to hold off until 11 dpo. You can usually get a good reading with a frer by then Fx and keep us posted!!

I just decided to join fertilityfriend.com and found a discount on their facebook page. If you 'like' them and then go to their promos tab, you can get a year's membership for $24.95 (normally $120).

And I agree with smimms, you should wait to test! 8DPO is too early and you will get a false or worse, you might experience a chemical! GL!

So I'm torn.

Based on all my past cycles, FF is predicting that I'm somewhere between DPO17 and DPO11 today. Though I got EWCM on CD19&20, which would put me at DPO7!!! AF is predicted for tomorrow. My shortest cycle was 19d and my longest 31d. I'm on CD27 today. I'm utterly confused on when to test!!! I don't want to POAS too early as I'm terrified of how I will respond to a chemical...but I'm dying to know! Any advice?

Personally, I would wait.

And Iīm not even into my 2ww yet...

Wow. I just really need to share this you guys.

I feel amazing.

Since I was 19, my sex drive has been really really low.
Iīve experimented with different types of BC, shots, pills, evening the loop thatīs inserted into.... yea... ouch...
I even stopped taking the pill for a few months, to no avail.

These days, I feel like I'm 17 again

The only thing I can think is making the difference, is the fact that Iīm taking all sorts of vitamins, and prenatal stuff, thatīs affecting my hormonal balance.
So, even if I canīt get preggers yet, one good thing has come out of this

Oh wow how confusing.. It wouldn't hurt to test with FMU tomorrow. I've heard of pregnant women experiencing ewcm. Either way I would make sure it is done with fmu. It's better to know than not to I believe. Have you been taking prenatals?

Hey guys. I would love to join and get to know y'all! I just turned 32 about a week ago - Hubby turns 30 in about 2 weeks. We have been TTC since June of 2011. I had a MMC in November and am on Cycle #6 after the loss.

I have Low Progesterone/Luteal Phase Defect. I have an appt on Thursday to find out what this cycles plan of action is. Last cycle was a bust and my Progesterone didn't raise to an acceptable level.

For the testing schedule - I will probably test on May 21st but that may change depending on when I OV.

So I realized today that I've been going about TTC all wrong. Apparently your chances are the best when having sex 2 days prior to ovulation and not the day of. On the exact date of ovulation I read there is only a 5% chance of pregnancy. I was concentrating on BD right when I thought ovulation hit. Well I guess that means more a couple days before.. Darn

Isn't it??? I hate feeling so out of the loop with my own body I started taking prenatals in December and my multi I took for years beforehand had 400mg of folic acid so I'm set on that front! Unless you were going somewhere else with that question Getting ahead of myself!

*EDIT: Just read your comment about BDing on day of O...craziness! Seems so opposite of common sense! Thanks for sharing
