When should I take a HPT?

I can't remember the start of my last period. Dumb I KNOW! (I'm mad at myself!) But I know the day I TTC. How long should I wait, since I do not remember my period day. I was thinking two weeks...

  • Two weeks sounds about right to me. Good Luck!

  • it takes 12 days for a HPT to show accurately. So wait 15 days from the day you TTC and test.

    Since sperm live 3 days during our fertile cycle...

  • I normally wait 18 days past ovulation because at that point I can pretty much guarentee at that point that I'm pregnant since luteal phases don't last past 17 days unless there is an issue.

  • Two weeks you may get a positive, wait three if you don't want to take two tests.
