Re: Do you test early or wait for AF to be late?

I didn' answr the poll b/c I'm sort of a mixture. When I'm having regular AFs I wait until I'm late. Right now however i haven't had my first PP af yet (unless you count when I bled afer my IUD fell out in april) so I have tesed a couple times

I TRY to wait until I am atleast 1 day late based on when I oed (so 14 days post o) but the only thing that kept me on track last month was not being able to find a test anywhere lol

Well, when Ive actually been pregnant (and in denial lol) I've waited until after AF was due. But when I only *think* Im pregnant I obsess and test starting at around 10dpo, lol. Then curse myself for wasting $ on tests when I *knew* I wasn't sure.

My cycle is only about 25 days long most of the time so if I started testing early I'd be peeing on sticks all month long! I just wait til she's late. And the last 3 months she's been about 4 days late but then showed up like clockwork. Stupid witch.

I didn't answer the poll either as none of the options fit me.
Depending on the cycle, sometimes I'll test at 10 dpo. But sometimes not.
So for me it just really depends on my mood. But getting constant negatives was a bummer so I tried not to test early if I could help it. Anytime I've gotten an early + it's been at 10 dpo though. On a fluke this cycle I did test at 10 dpo and was shocked to see it turn +.
