How long to wait

How late were you before you decided to take a test? Was it positive? To call the doctors office?

Re: How long to wait

  • I was about a week late when I tested.

  • I tested 6 days before my missed period and got a BFP on first response and clear blue digital. Test now. Good luck :-)

  • I tested on Monday Sept 2nd and got a negative.  Then I tested on Sunday the 8th and got a positive.  The first day of my last period was Aug 13, so I was expecting my period on/around the 13th. 
  • I tested on due date with a clearblue digi. It came up positive straight away
  • DD = a full month late. She was a surprise.

    DS= 4 days before my supposed period was to start.

    When in doubt take an HPT.
    - Use Pink Dye
    - Read the directions
    - Follow the directions
    - don't look at the test after the time limit has elapsed.

    Good luck. You don't need to waste a co-pay, or your doctor's time until you reach 60 days (medical standard) without a positive HPT or your period.

  • I tested when I was about 2 days late.  I actually thought it would be negative, because I had pretty bad "PMS" symptoms (which I guess were actually my first pregnancy symptoms).  I didn't believe it, so I tested again about a week later and it was definitely positive.  However, I did use the early detection test.
