Question How Soon Can I Test?

I was wondering how soon I can take a HPT? I am ovulating today (aug 26) and the DH and I didn't use any protection on aug. 24th. So I was wondering when I could test to see if I'm preggo.

Also is it possible not to concieve while ovulating, using no protection?

Thanks

You can take an HPT five days before you period is due. You will get more accurate results if test when your period is due or late. I believe you can get a blood test 8-10 days after conception.

Yes it is possible to not conceive, as far as I know anyway.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!

Re: How Soon Can I Test?

Even with perfect timing, I think they say a healthy couple has a 1 in 5 chance of conceiving in any given month. The more you bd right befoer ovulation, the better your chances. You might want to try tonight, too, just in case you release two eggs. Can't hurt, anyway! Don't get discouraged if this is not your month.

BTW, I just learned that I am expecting TWINS!! Even with two, I didn't test positive until 12 days after ovulation, the day befoer my period was due. That was using a test the doctor gave me, and the line was sooo faint you could really just barely see it. Dh didn't see it at all (he still doesn't see it). So to me, that is proof that you're better off waiting until the day your period is due, or even a day after. I know the wait is a killer! Of course, everyone's body is different.

Re: How Soon Can I Test?

Congrats on the twins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I am a fertile mertil with my third child I got preggo on the pill the first two no BC at all, and I had my tubes burned 1 1/2 years ago and still got preggo again in May of this year. I had a MC in June though. So I would say I am a fertile mertil. So chances are good for pregnancy again.

BTW, Thanks for the replies.
