    Default When can I test for pregnancy?

    Hi everyone

    Can anyone tell me the absolute earliest you can test for pregnancy just using a home test kit

    From DTD when is the earliest?

    Thanks!

    I didn't get a positive until 10 DPO with all my pregnancies. But I know go some they didn't get a positive until after AF.

    So really you can test when you like there just might not be a positive at that time.

    Good luck I hope you get your BFP soon xx

    You can't really count from DTD because you can do that at any time of the month and sperm can live in your body for a few days. Go from when you ovulated.

    I got my faint BFP this time at 8DPO, last pregnancy I didn't even notice AF was late so not until I was almost 6 weeks.

    I think as pp said going from dtd is inaccurate. Go from your last ovulation or period. From memory with Ds2 I was 7dpo when I got a very faint bfp but at 6dpo it was negative.
