How Early can you test?
I am TTC. My AF shoul start on Sunday or Monday. Is it too early for me to test in the am? Also, which is better...the test strips(that I have bought by the thousands) or an actual store test. Thankx! ~Holly

I tested on a Friday afternoon when due for AF the following Mondayand got a bfp. I tried the test strips by the thousands....and no luck, I bought a fact Plus and it was a def positive!

Good :hugs: luck!!!

Re: How Early can you test?
I would go to and buy a test that requires the lowest level of hormones. Some require50 units and others 25 or less.The less it requires, the chances are of getting a pos early.
BUT i have heard many of the sticks, that we all poas addicts love so much, have the lowest levelrequired. Like12or something... I dont know.

I tested 9 DPO with the cheap strips and got 8 positives. :giggle:

I just tested today (probably 9 dpo) and got maybe a BFP on a internet strip test. It was so light, that I'm not calling it a BFP. I will retest in a few days.

Re: How Early can you test?
I took a CBE digital two weeks ago Monday, BFN, then Wed and got BFP! :) AF was due Fri. As PP said, it depends on the test's measurements and how much hormone your body produces. I go digital because I'll find a line on any test! lol.
Good luck!
