Counting Question

OK I know when counting cycle days you count the day of AF as one.... so I O'd I believe on the 14th day going by cf and other symptoms ( I am not charting or using any pee sticks) I just mark day of AF count the days and mark the sex days... anyways so if I did O on the 14th day (June 17th) do I count that day as day 1? or do I count the next day as day 1... am I 8 dpo or 9dpo.... AF should be here July 1st if I have another 28 day cycle.... so 6 more days to go UGH

Re: Counting Question

The day AFTER you ovulate would be 1DPO. At least that is how I learned to understand it, and how I always marked it on my chart when I was actively charting.

Re: Counting Question

Well, depending on the sensativity of the test you use, you could theoretically get an accurate result as early as 10DPO.

But, most tests will also tell you (in small print of course) that it is best to wait until at least 14DPO for the best results.

I have a list someplace of the sensitivity of pregnancy tests and which are most likely to pick up even the smallest traces of hcg (pregnancy hormone). I could look and see what one to recommend if you are wanting to test early.

Gosh, I remember that feeling! Why is it no one ever tells us how hard trying to get pregnant can be? Boy, I should have had stock in Prozac while I was TTC (lol)

Good luck testing next weekend! Hopefully you will get that positive result!
