7 days past Oulation, 7 days until expected AF.. please advice

OPK test said i was ovulating a few hours after sex.. so, I think I'm good there. I couldn't wait so I have tested twice the past few days. Thought I saw a faint line the other day, but probably seeing things. Tonight (a week after ovulation) I tested completly negative. I don't see a line at all. With my last pregnancy I am pretty sure that I got an early result not sure though. I'm using the equate brand from walmart. Has anyone else gotten a negative result a week in between, but ended up being pregnant in the end? When should I test?

  • It takes 12 days past conception for enough hormones to show up in urine. So even though you ovulated 7 days ago, if you concieved, it would only be 5-6 days ago. so you need to wait at least 9 more days to get an accurate test result, uless you want to get a blood test

  • That would already be past my AF though :-( the test i took were supposed to be 5 days sooner.. has anyone else taken a test this early with a postiive result? Has anyone taken a test this early with a negative and then a few days later gotten a positive?

  • It's still going to take @12 days past conception for the HGC to show up in urine regardless of your cycle

  • my breast are not sore at all.. i have a little bit of cramping, but not extreme.. lots of gas (sorry TMI). Have felt a little sick and faint...very tired. All the rest can be excused, but very very tired.. hardly get out of bed. ive just known many women who can take a test a week early and get atleast a very faint sign

  • It's not uncommon but you have to realize that not all women are on a 28 day cycle. I am on a 33 day cycle so 5 days earlier is different from someone on a 28 day cycle. the tests are set up around 28. good luck!
    BTW, my breasts didn't get sore until I was almost 12 weeks along and then OMG!!! my bra hurt them. I was tired some and very crampy as soon as I found out.
