  • Wait till you actually miss a period and then test again.

  • There is really no point in testing before you miss your period. Based on a 28 day cycle you would conceive on July 17. Most if not all of the sperm from the 11th would have died off by then. But let's say you ovulated early. It takes about a week for the egg to travel your tubes to the uterus. (11+7=18) Then it takes approximately another week for the egg to actually implant and the placenta to begin working. (18+7=25) Allow another week or so for the HCG hormone to build up (25+7= August 1) and then you've missed your period. So yes you tested way too soon. It is possible you might be pregnant and the spotting was implantation. I am not sure of when you ovulated. All of this of course is an estimation. The time frames are approximate.

  • Do you have a clue as to what you are saying? If you're trying to get pregnant, you're having sex on the WRONG days! About a week too early, in fact.

  • Does not look like you could be from your account here. Your timing is all wrong.

    Please, head to the bookstore and pick up a copy of "Taking Charge Of Your Fertility" by Toni Wechsler. It will teach you to chart and understand your cycle. You will know when you're pregnant without having to pee on the stick (though you should do it anyway).
