I am certainly new to this board but a long time JMer. I just have a question about testing and when I should start. Here is the sinerio.
I purchased OPK tests online that came with early preg tests too. They say you can test as early as 3 days from conception! My question though would be if the swimmers hang around a few days before O then when would you test? Would you go 3 days from dtd or 3 days from when o should be?
Definately added a new layer of waiting for me. Also, last month I spotted for 2 days before AF showed full force. Would you could the first day of "spotting" as the start of AF and your LMP or the day it was full tilt?
Thank you so much in advance and good luck for everyone waiting to POAS yourselves Never thought I'd be on this board I'll tell you
Our tests detect this hormone level at only 10 mIU/ml, making these some of the most sensitive and accurate tests available. With a detection tolerance this low, you can expect a positive result in as few as 3-5 days after conception.
I am not sold on the idea of that early though which is why I was asking...dtd friday doesn't mean thats when you specifically would conceive, it could be up to Sunday or Monday right?
As far as when you and hubby dtd, it takes his swimmers 12-24 hours to get where they need to be, and then it takes the fertillized egg another day or two to come down where it can implant. Hope this helps!
Thanks Ladies! I figured it might be the same too, trying to get people to buy more. I wanted the OPKs anyways so for the extra $5 it was still cheaper to get them online together than a single would cost at any store by far
For what it's worth, my last shipment of IC's (mine are the pink ones not blue) have hardly ANY dye on them when I compare them to ones I've had in the past. So there are variations, and that's something to consider for any test. Good luck! I can't wait to see your tests!!
