Did I test too early??

I am on 50mg Clomid and got a positive OPK I figured I ovulated around cd14 or so. It is now cd21 and I got a negative pregnancy test from the dollar tree, which I heard are good tests. Did I test too early? If I did, when should I re-test?

  • I would test after you have missed your period. I took a $1 pregnancy test when I was a week late and I got a faint positive.

  • Different tests have different sensitivity levels, here's a link about it

  • It is better to wait until you miss your period.  If it's negative the first time after that, wait until you are 7-10 days late.

  • At least 2 weeks after you ovulate. As hard as it is, you're just wasting money, and your time, there is truely no point in testing until after your period is due.

  • You tested just as the egg would be arriving at the uterus. It needs to implant and the placenta needs to form and start working. Give it another week or week and a half and test again with first morning urine.
