  • It is best to wait until you are a week or MORE past your expected cycle start date. Before that and they aren't really accurate.

  • if you cant wait i think the earliest you can test is 4 days before your period.

  • i am going to say two weeks, because that is about when your next period would be due.

  • A week to travle the tubes, a week to implant , and a week to have enough HCG built up to register a test. No sooner than 16 dpo.

  • I took an early result test 6 days before AF and got a BFP. 5 of them to be exact. I was 11dpo

  • Hcg (the hormone that is detected by home pregnancy tests) is NOT even produced until after the fertilized egg has implanted. Implantation takes between 6-10 days after ovulation to occur. It will then take a few days for enough hormone to build up in your blood and spill into your urine. I would wait untill at least 10 days after ovulation if not longer to test.
