    There are some tests like the FRER that can detect the pregnancy hormone 5 days before a missed period. I would try then, and then every other day afterwards if it's a :bfn: Good luck!!

    well you're only 5dpo now so wait until atleast you are 12 dpo, some people can show positives early on... or you could just save buying a test and wait to see if the :witch: stays away... good luck.. i think i got my first bfp about 9 dpo, but it was very very faint, and then got darker and darker.

    HCG is a glycoprotein hormone secreted by developing placenta shortly after implantation. hCG can be detected in urine and serum of pregnant women as early as 6 to 15 days after conception.
    So at earlist I would say 13 th but I really would wait until 16th as lots of bfn gets depressing if you test early as not everybody,s body is the same

    Yeah.. im thinking that If I cant hold myself to sunday I will test on friday ore saturday (it seems not as far away, so maby when its friday I can wait 2 days more :) hehe).
    I just wanted to know if it was posible to get acurate test 2 days early. 7 days early is not acurate and I was not dreaming of taking test today :) hehe.

    But I dont have to spend money on them. Got several tests for very litle money. 2 test here at home costs the same (clear blue) but these are strips and I have 18 pg tests and had about 27 ovulation test (have used some of them).

    I think you should wait until at least after 10DPO (although I can never wait that long :blush:)

    I use the $ store cheapies though so it's not too hard on my pocket.
