When to POAS

So I bought them and now I need to try to hold out til Friday...13 dpiui.  When do you think it is safe to test for an accurate result?  How long do you wait?  I have no symptoms and am feeling a bit negative.

Re: When to POAS

  • I'm not sure about "safe" as far as getting an accurate test, but I usually try to wait until at least 14 dpo.  Tomorrow will be 14 dpiui for me.  I'm still debating with myself wether to test tomorrow or keep waiting.  The last few months I have spotted the day before af and I am expecting to get af either tomorrow or Friday.  So maybe I'll wait to see if there is any spotting today.

  • I like to wait until the last minute, I am not an early tester. I find the negative tests harder to take than AF starting. That said I'm 13dpo and I expected AF today or yesterday and so far she hasn't showed. I have no tests in the house so I will wait until tomorrow. If she doesn't show I will buy some tests. I never make it to 14dpo so we'll see. Good luck!

    TTC #2 since June 2011
    Dx: low AMH, potentially blocked tube
    April-May cycles 50mg Clomid: BFN
    June-July cycles 50mg Clomid + Ovidrel + Progesterone: BFN
    Aug cycle 7.5mg Letrozole + Ovidrel + Progesterone: BFN
    Sept cycle 100mg Clomid + Follistim + Progesterone: BFN
    Oct cycle Clomid + Follistim + Ovidrel + IUI: ?????
  • With both of my pregnancies I got BFNs on day 12 and BFPs on 13dpo. So from now on I will wait until 13 dpo just in case.

    Good luck, ladies. I hope you both get BFPs soon!

    Dx: PCOS and short luteal phase
    18 cycles (3 with our RE) - Metformin + Clomid + HCG booster did the trick!
    BFP #1 6/22/09 EDD: 3/2/10 DS born: 3/8/10

    TTC #2 since Dec 2011
    BFP #2 7/8/12 EDD: 3/18/12 M/C @ 9w1d: 8/16/12

  • Easier said than done but I would hold out as long as you could.  I agree a BFN is harder than AF starting.  

    I POAS on Sunday (4dp6dt) and Tuesday (6dp6dt)  both negative my beta is today. I'm not holding out any hope.  GL to you all and I hope you get your BFP!!

  • I test 14 days past. My cycle are very regular at 30 days. I test so I don't find out the news from AF. But not so early that I know for many days before
