    hi, i jus bought some IC from ebay this morning, 1st time using them but how early can you test with them and how reliable are they? I was just thinking i'd use them and if i got a '+' then i'd buy a more expensive make. Its hard enough getting a :bfn: but makes it even worse when you have spent nearly £10 on the test!!
    Yea so :witch: is due on the 14th, when should i test?

    Im not overly sure when i O'd though, going by calendar and CM i would guessabout the 31st! So does that mean i could possibly test tomorrow if they are delivered by then? (Im secretly hopin they are delivered closer to next week so i wont be able to test :dohh:)
    Thanks for your reply

    It depends how seeing a bfn effects you! if you're not worried by then start 10dpo - but safer 14dpo or whenever your af is officially late!

    I tested from 8dpo last cycle with those sensitive tests and just upset myself too much. Haven't even been tempted this cycle, even though there are 2 left in my bathroom cabinet and I'm 11dpo!

    Good luck!

    Hmm, yea on that note i would rather be greeted by AF then have a :bfn: staring me in the face. Think ill leave it til the 14 or after (ill try anyway:dohh:) then i know the results will b more reliable.
    Thanks girls for your replies x

    Is it better to use the 10miu ones or 5umi? I've got a few 5 miu ones with my ovulation sticks - but now unsure what is more accurate ?????

    I think 5Miu ones are more detect quicker, i think the bigger the number the more pregnancy hormone you have to have to get a positive result. i could be wrong but i think thats how it works

    I got a faint :bfp: with my second baby on CD 26 out of a 28 day cycle, no idea when I ovulated though.

    I think as the others have said, it's possible from around 8dpo.

    Good luck! :)

    5miu should be avoid at all costs because some people naturally have an hcg of 5 anyway all the time!

    I used 10miu, used them at 8/9dpo, very faint line, so faint a cam wouldnt pic it up and was easy mistaken for an evap.

    tested on 12dpo with a CB normal and got a positive, wheras i used same FMU on the 10miu IC and still barely a line.

    I say the IC are good when you're getting OPKS but pointless for HPTS.
