    Default Testing before due?

    Hi,

    Just wanted to see if it is common to get a false negative if you test before your period is due has anyone out there ended up being pregnant?? Im not due till somewhere between saturday and monday, i tested on tuesday and got a BFN and tested again this morning and got another im just wondering if maybe i have tested to soon as my cycle is usually anywhere between 28-30 days and im not exactly sure when ovulated i think it was around day 14 or 15, would love to hear other peoples experiences with testing

    This pregnancy, I got a BFP a week before my AF was due. It was very faint but you could see it and as I got closer to AF being due, the line on each test I did got darker. Each woman and pregnancy is different and I've heard stories of ladies getting BFPs as early as me and others not getting them till a wk or 2 after. Good luck.

    AF is due today but I'm too scared to test. So I'm going to wait until she shows up! 15 DPO today.

    At 15DPO, you should get a true result. There are rare people who don't get positives until much later but mostly the result on the day AF is due is correct.

    I got my BFP at 11DPO. I hadn't tested before that but it was strong enough that I might've gotten it earlier. That was three or four days before AF was due.

    Thanks Sian. I had a teeny bit of spotting this morning so I'm thinking AF is on her way.

    I got a BFN 2 days ago (13DPO) so I'm pretty sure I'm out for this month. So bummed.

    My older sister announced her pregnancy a few weeks ago and told me it only took them 2 months to conceive. Me and DH have been trying for 10 months so far, with 3 early miscarriages during that time. It's tough fertility tests show everything is healthy. Suppose I just got the bad luck

    Hi Lovable,

    so sorry to hear that.
    Some women do spot around the time their period is due even when they are pregnant.
    Maybe there is still a chance?

    Fx for you.
    Sending lots of sticky baby vibes
