  • I tried one of the early ones at about 5 days past ovulation and got a positive with my first son but I know that is not the "norm". Good luck, if you're going to attempt buy the most sensitive test you can find and don't be too disappointed if it's negative, just test again later.

  • I would take the test and see what it says. If it is neg try again in a week. GL

  • you can still try it and see if it works, but it may not. if it doesnt, no harm done wait about a week and try again.

  • Ten days past ovulation, per most of the kits. There isn't enough HcG before then.
