Does everyone in here test every month?

It seems like a lot of TTC ladies can't wait to be 7-12 dpo so they can test, which I understand wanting to know as soon as you can- I've got a lot of TTC years under my belt, I've been there.

After all my unsuccessful years, I just can't handle monthly BFN's, so I never test. Even when i did get my BFP with baby Betty, I was 2 weeks late for AF because I'm so test-shy. Does anyone else just wait for AF?

 I don't. Only way I will now is if AF is late or I have some significant sign that isn't normal in my tww. Even that is pushing it though since symptoms can change so much.

Some months I don't test at all unless I'm late. Some months I'm literally peeing on SOMETHING every day (OPK, HPT).

With my first I didn't test till af was almost a week late. I didn't know you could get a + earlier than that.  I really liked that way, the line was instantly, obviously positive. With my second I tested and got a faint + at10 dpo. I was more stressed finding out so early.

I don't test every month, especially cause my af is always right on time. It's hard though. Not sure I'll be able to wait this cycle! lol.

I usually wait. I hate seeing that bfn so I avoid it as much as possible. I have tested right before af was due when I just felt off but then af would show up that day or the next. Last month I waited until I was a couple days late but it was bfn so I didn't test again.

 I just wait for af to be late due to being so irregular.

 I don't test unless AF is a no show.
