When can I take this test, already?

Thread Starter 
Here we go round the mulberry bush...

My cycle is erratic. It varies from 21 - 35 days. Usually closer to 21 days.

Today is day 23 since the start of my last period. I want to take a test!!! This suspense and let down every month is driving me crazy. I know I should probably wait another week.

Do you think it's too soon to spend the £8-£12 on a test or can I go ahead?:

Oh, and I am only 11 days past ovulation.

With all of my pg, I tested pos at 10 DPO--albeit it very faint. Are you really going to be able to wait a week? If so you have much more willpower than I.

I'd buy a test with 2 in it and take one today. If it came out neg, I'd retest in 5 days.

Good luck!!!

Indiegirl - you are reading my mind.

Of course, I know if I even buy a test it will bring my period on. :

If you want to make yourself wait a week, you could buy some tests online. You can easily find them for $1-$3 each (not sure about UK sites, but either way, I'm sure you could get them cheaper this way).

Best of luck to you!

peace, Beth

ps Isn't peace of mind worth a few pounds?

((((((hugs)))))) I'm assuming it was negative or that you started your period??

Thanks, Indiegirl.

I went to meet some friends feeling all happy and intending to buy a test on the way home. One of the women looked at me and asked me if I was pregnant!!! So I was really excited. Then I got my period. Sigh.

I'm bummed because we did everything "right" this past month. Guess we'll just have to keep trying.
