    Default How far for a positive?

    Probably a silly question, but how far along do you have to be to show a positive on a pee stick test from the supermarket??

    Some people have had positives from about 10 dpo. They usually say you could get a positive from 4 or 5 days before period due. Read the box, it has the likelihood of getting a positive each day

    Depends on the length of your cycle. I have 28 day cycle, if test is positive 5 days before period due, and pregnancy is taken from 1st day of last period, I'd be counted as just over 3 weeks pregnant when I got BFP

    10 DPO = 10 days past ovulation. So assuming you O on CD14, you'd have to be at least 3 weeks + 3 days into your pregnancy to show a positive.

    They advised to wait until your period is due though. So assuming you have a 28 days cycle, you'd have to wait to be 4 weeks into your pregnancy to test.
