    This is good advice but unfortunately I have to test early so my treatment can start. The sooner I know the better in my case. I'd be absolutely devastated to have a chemical though. But I'll never get my hopes up till I'm 12 weeks anyway cos of my losses :(

    I also had to test early due to an ectopic pregnancy in August which required emergency surgery and the removal of my right tube. I do not ever want to go through that again. So, I had to start testing early because the second I found out I was pregnant I had to go to the doctor to immediately get monitored with my blood levels. Some women have to test early... and for those who test early but don't need to, I think it's okay as long as they can handle the disappointment. If it causes a lot of unnecessary stress then I think people should wait until they are a day late. But some women handle it fine and enjoy the experience of TTC. I see where you are coming from though. Chemicals are very very hard and most women would never know they had one if they didn't test early.

    Yeah I don't HAVE to test early, I choose to test early (and often). I can handle getting the bfn's, that doesn't bother me. And honestly, on the ic especially, if I had a positive result on one and then got af, I'd just assume it was an evap on the ic. :shrug:

    I say if you can handle it, go for it! I am one of those who easily got disappointed to see a BFN at 6 DPO so I didn't do it that early. I did start at 9 DPO though in October since I recently had an ectopic and thankfully I did because that night is when I saw my BFP!

    i understand some ppl have 2 test early 4 health reasons ie ectopic ur life is defo more important then waiting as i know they can b dangerous

    but if thats not the case and u want 2 test early just b aware chemicals do happen :( and r common
    where as if u leave it a week or so the risk of a chemical is alot lower

    happy testing whenever u want fx 4 a sticky :)
