I started way too early and have been getting BFN. Today I'm 10-11ishDPO and got a BFN and now I feel so discouraged. Next cycle I'm waiting.

I am trying to hold off until 10 or 11 dpo. If its negative then I won't test again until I know I've missed my period (which if course can vary by almost a week depending in the cycle).

But I am going to test Monday morning. It will give me something to look forward to, even if it ends up being negative.

I start at 8DPO.
I got a + last month at 8dpo, so I'll probably be sticking with that day for now since I know the wondfo's can pick it up.

I test the day my period is due. If it doesn't show by midday I start holding my pee and test in the evening. I've tested early before and gotten BFNs only to get a BFP later.

I've only tested twice in the 9 cycles. I try to hold out until at least the day AF should come or the day after. In which case the time I did it was BFN and it came the next day.... the other time was too early probably like 8DPO or something...I don't want to have to see the BFN.....

I usually wait until the day AF arrives. I used to test early but I was always disappointed so now I am scared of the BFN.

I usually don't test either because most of the time that I test early I get BFN's and they are sooo depressing. Last cycle I broke down and tested early and I got a hint of a line and was really excited but it turned out to be an evap It was the first time in the 22 months that I have been trying that I have ever seen a line of any kind on an HPT.

My cycles are irregular but I have found that I never make it past CD33 usually I start spotting on that day and I have full af on what would be CD34 so if I ever make it past that then I will test but for now I am staying away from testing early!!
