Infertility

When can I test?

So I took my first round of clomid (50 mg) and I am fairly sure I ovulated. The test came back with fairly similar lines but it was not crystal clear. However, the signs from my body suggested that I ovulated. So now my question is, when can I test? I know some tests are capable of giving results 6 days before your missed period. Can I do that, or will the clomid alter the results? I keep seeing the term "two week window" and I don't know what that means.

 

Thanks!

Re: When can I test?

  • 2WW = 2 week wait.

    Some people wait the full 2 weeks after ovulation to test, others (like myself) like to torture themselves and will test sooner.  The earliest I think people have seen positives is around 10-11 days past ovulation (dpo).

    Good luck

    Also Fertility Friend has stats an when a + HPT is recognized.

    ETA, though a test *can* indicate pregnancy early, it's not by any means accurate if your body isn't making enough hCG at the time, and you very well can be pregnant at 10dpo with a neg HPT.
