  • wait until you actually miss a period to test.

  • I guess it depends on how long your cycles are... I would test, just to do it, but if you're going to be super bummed to see a BFN, that might not be the best on Christmas morning!

  • You can try but if you get a negative then don't get all upset over it. It may just need a few more days. I got a positive before at 9 dpo. GL.

  • Even with twins and super high hcg I could barely tell if it was positive at 10 DPO, so I think I would wait just a little longer. Good luck!
