Ugh, so Idk when I ovulated. Period lasts 5 days and my cycle lasts 29 days. Lmp was 12/17. Had unprotected sex on 12/26 and apparently EWCM on the 27-29 with blood streaks. I'm guessing ovulation on 12/28??

Anyway, when should I test to see if I'm preggo?

I would say no sooner than the 6th. That should put you around 10dpo

I recommend testing if you miss your period. Only because I mc'd the day after I normally get my period. My sister tested early and mc'd on her AF day as well. Or if you want to test early you can test 5 days before AF is due. I tested a lot with that short-lived pregnancy and got negatives until 1 week before my normal AF day and the line was very faint.

Since you don't know when  you ovulated I would wait until you think your AF is due before testing just so you arent wasting tests too early

I never test until my period is actually late by at least few days. And when I'm pregnant I a get clear, dark positive test.
Hanging in this group for a week has made me think early testing is a bad idea. All these tests posted day in & day out that look negative but people swear they see something, it looks too emotionally draining.
