    Default Too early to test?

    Hi all,

    I've been a bit of a lurker on this board for sometime so HELLO TO YOU ALL

    So this is my situation at the moment, I was on the pill from the age of 15 to 25. Then I had an implanon rod inserted which was in place for about 10 months and removed in November 2008. Since then FH and I have not been using any contraception.

    At the moment I am about 5 days late for AF (was due July 30th). According to mymonthlycycles.com I should have ovulated around July 16th.

    Is it too early to test? And which home pregnancy tests would you recommend?

    Thanks in advance for any advice ladies.

    Cat.

    No its not too early to test. I recommend the pregnancy tests from Lullaby Conceptions (online store) because they're cheap for a bulk pack and reliable.

    If you want to do a test straight away then First Response or Confirm are good chemist/supermarket tests.

    Good luck!

    I personally found First Response to be a reliable brand - I tested 3 days after AF was due, and had a (albeit faint) positive... and later found out I had ovulated 6 days later than I thought, so it was a pretty impressive result!

    Wishing you all the best, let us know how it goes!!

    Crystal clear and first response are both great and you and not at all too early to test!!! I testes and got a positive atleast a week before AF was due.

    Default BFN and still no AF!

    Well I tested yesterday afternoon at about 3:30pm and got a BFN So waited until this morning to test again with FMU and still got a BFN!!

    Still NO sign of AF though so I don't know what to do now. Do I wait a few days to see what happens and test again or should I just book in to see a doc on Saturday - their testing is more accurate I assume especially a BT?

    I'd go see the doctor and get checked and a BT it could be anything.
    Good luck Hun.

    Thanks for all your comments ladies. I tested again yesterday using FR and got a BFN. Today AF showed up. Had a huge cry with FH last night so was feeling okay with it all by today when AF finally showed. Oh well ..... back to the drawing board so to speak.
