When do you test!?

I should probably know this already but now that I'm getting super close to actually TTC in July and June testers was posted, it occured to me that I might be able to participate in July's tester post.


So I should O in July around the 21st, does that mean I wait until August to test? (June totally crept up on me, totally need to get my research on!)

My LP is usually about 12 days long, so I usually count 12 days out from the date I O and that's the date I give for the tester's thread. Now if I actually make it 12 days before testing or not...that's a different story. Lol. But I don't usually post in the tester's thread until I know I'm out for sure.  


If you O around the 21st of July, you would be 10DPO on July 31st. You could definitely get a BPF on day 10 or before, but if it's negative, you don't want to count yourself out just yet, KWIM? On the other hand, you might O early that month and be more DPO on July 31st, in which case you could go ahead and join. It's up to you...my suggestion would be to wait and see when you O in July:)


Good luck, I can't believe you're so close!

Great question! Fingers crossed for not too many months testing before you get that BFP!

Great advice, thanks littlebit! I'm still trying to grasp it all and everything you said helps everything make a bit more sense. Looks like July will be an exciting month to learn a little bit more about myself.

Ditto littlebit - it really depends when you O and your LP... and even then if you test too early (like me LOL) 10 DPO may be too early... but that's when most people test. I've learned to wait until AT LEAST 10 DPO and see what happens then.


If you O late in your cycle (like me - I O around CD 17-21) and have a short LP 10-15 days, then you may want to wait until a day or two before AF is supposed to arrive.
