  • After you're first missed period I would test.

  • If you have regular, 28 day cycles, then yes, you do have a chance of being pregnant. I would wait until AFTER you missed your period to test, just to give it enough time to build up the hCG in your bloodstream... Good luck!

  • If you have 28 day cycles and the first day of your last period was the 8th I'll make these assumptions

    Period starts 10/8 = Cycle Day 1
    If your luteal phase is 14 days Ovulation would occur on on Cycle day 14 or 10/22

    If you did in fact ovulate on the 22nd the 23rd and 24th would be too late, but the 20th could have done it.

    BUT not everyone ovulates on cycle day 14 I have gotten positive Ovulation kits and temp spikes indicating I ovulated of cycle days 16 and 18 before.

    I would say you have a fair chance of being pregnant ESPECIALLY if you have something closer to maybe a 29 or 30 day cycle OR ovulate on CD 16 or 18 rather than CD 14.

    Good luck and test after you miss your period. It will make sure your HCG concentration is at detectable levels in your urine.

  • Online things are a load of rap. Your best bet it to either go to the doctors in the next week get a blood test done or just wait for a missed period

  • Test one week after your missed period. I got a pregnancy test that was positive when I was just 5 weeks pregnant, at conception you are technically considered 2 weeks already.

  • If you get a clear blue or (not sure of the other name) you can test as soon as 5 days before your missed period ... but i suggest waiting till maybe 3 days before! But if you want ... you may want to wait till your period date if missed!
