  • I hope others respond but I think it is the last day or the day after. Not 100%

  • I bought my tests online through Amazon. I got 80 tests for $9.89 and free shipping. That way, I don't have to guess.

  • usually one ovulates 11 days after the last day of your period. so i would start checking around the 15th of the month. good luck!!

  • Begin checking on Cycle day 10. Meaning, AF is day #1 of new cycle so test on day 10. I don't O till about day 16-18, but I have long cycles. Hopefully, you'll get your BFP before yuo run out of tests!! Happy BD'ing

  • you may have to get more tests. youll have to keep checking every day until a positive shows up. i bought mine from amazon too. it also included pregnancy tests.

  • Just test at the same time every day. I believe they say ideal is between 10am-6pm. Supposedly, FMUis not best as it is with HPT's. Also, I buy O tests at the Dollar Tree. Only $1 and have always worked for me!
