my conception day was the 6/4-5/05 and i'm not suppose to start my period till around the 15 or so. When can I take a test?

Hi Amy--I would wait until at least the 13 to take a test...but even then it could be too early. Some of the tests say you can take them up to 4 days before your period, but sometimes that early there isn't enough hcg in your system yet, so even though you really are preggo it will show up negative. If you can I'd wait until a few days after you miss af, maybe test on the 18th. Then if that's negative and you still haven't started a week later, take another test. I know the waiting is hard. I think I ovulated between the 27 and the 30, and I have to wait til the 13th(around there)... Anyway, good luck!

Thanks! It is very hard to wait, I know it may be silly but I took one this morning and well yea, it was negative. a friend said it would be ok to take it now so I was confused. Thanks again.

Amy--don't get discouraged, it was probably just be too early...after you conceive it can take from 7 to 10 days for the embryo to emplant, which is when it starts producing hcg. What brand of test do you use?

It was the "FirstResponse" type of test. Good or bad?

That is what I have used in the past, the First Reponse Early...I have heard bad things about them lately though, not detecting the lower amount like they are supposed to...I've heard the Dollar Tree tests are great, and they're only $1...I think I might try them this month.

It takes two weeks before a HCG blood test will show a positive pregnancy, a home test takes even longer. Hang in there!
