  • One week of after the first day you miss your period. Until then, any reading either is too early or may be false.

  • Well, it will still take a good two weeks to even attempt to know. Then, you can call the doctor to find out.

  • 2-3 weeks after possible fertilization. It is sooo hard to wait!! I would say just do one every week if you can accept getting negative results while waiting for your pregnancy hormone levels to reach high enough levels to be detected (if you are pregnant). Some people may call it obsessive or pointless, but I have a hard time waiting! I want to know now!! (but I have to wait a few weeks to test...)

    Good luck to you!

  • Brownish discharge could be old blood coming out. Idk though, if it continues you might want to go to the drs... Feel free to pm me if you want to chat:) we are ttc now and I am waiting to test (trying to wait to test). Good luck to you!
