  • Give it a couple more days and see, you will either get your period or a BFP. Good Luck

  • it can be. say for example you had sex today (the 20th) while ovulating..but for some it may take longer for implantation...some as long as 8-10 days. so that would put you at the 30th. (thats 10dpo)...then you would have to wait for hcg to build up so you could get a positive hpt. hcg doubles every couple of days..so you would atleast need to wait a good week or so..i would wait 8-10 days. so i would wait 20 to 24 days past expected ovulation just to be totally sure
