Re: When to POAS???

If you oopsie was on day 7, and you ovulate between day 12 and 14, then it is possible - since sperm can live for up to 5-7 days. Tests are only accurate after implantation (because before that the cells that will be the baby aren't sharing blood or anything, so the hormone that shows up on the test can't be there yet). So... 5 days before your period would usually come is the general rule for "early" tests. Or day 23ish of your cycle? (because the "5days" rule assumes the average woman w/ her mythical 28 day cycle and O on day 14 - and we all know that happens to everyone -right? )

good luck!
