It has been 3 weeks and 3 days since my pregnancy loss and I got my first positive OPK a few days ago so I assume I was gearing up to ovulate because I felt ovulation signs and had a positive opk. When is the earliest I can start using hpt's? I know the likely-hood is probably negative and not gonna have my hopes up but it's worth a shot. We will be talking with the Doctor on everything on Friday when I go for my follow up.

I think that talking to your doctor about it is a great idea.

I don't really have any good advice because I tend to be a POAS addict sometimes. I can't seem to help myself, even when I know it may be too early to test.

I'm sorry that I wasn't much help! I bet some of the other ladies will have great advice.

Most of the time it's best to wait until AF is late because some people do not get a positive until after AF is due. However if you can handle seeing a negative and not get too upset (knowing it might still be too early) then I say start at 10dpo. Hope that helps dear! I also think talking to the doctor is a good idea

I agree with the other ladies it is best to wait until after AF is due. I however have never managed to wait that long. For me I never get BFPs until after 11DPO but for some women they will still see negatives and then a positive at 14DPO everyone is different so it is really hard to say. Fx for you!
