How many days after missed period did you finally see a positive on a pregnancy test?

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
I'm currently 17dpo (periods only been missing for 4 days) and I got a negative on a dollar store pregnancy test. I have a feeling that I am pregnant and want to know what the longest amount of time someone had to wait before they finally got a positive on a test.

Edited, Sorry, I read your question wrong. I got positives before my period each time.

Every woman is different - my bfp's were at 9, 10, 11 and 14 dpo, but I believe many women haven't gotten them that early.

For my first pregnancy, my period was due on the 17th, pregnancy test on the 20th was negative, pregnancy test on the 25th was positive. :P

I got a very dark line day 28 of my cycle. I normally would've gotten my period around day 24. I didn't test til day 28, when I was offically due. I suspected I was pregnant a week before that.

eh, with dd I didn't get a clear + on a home test. I had a really light not sure if it's + or not and then a negative at the clinic and thought I wasn't. Until awhile later and I got one at the Drs to be sure

With each pregnancy, I tested positive as soon as I had a test done.

So, it went like this:

#1: 14 dpo
#2: 13 dpo
#3: 16 dpo
#4: 10 dpo

My cousin never got a positive hpt. But it was like that with all of her pregnancies I believe.

I know you don't have any children yet, but have you had a positive home pregnancy test before, and if so, how far along were you?

I don't know what dpo means but I took 4 pregnancy tests before I got a +. The last one was about 4-5 days after my period was supposed to start.

ETA: dpo = days past ovulation?

I think it depends on the woman, all of her "levels" and the test of course, which kind are you thinking of using... and are we TTC??? :

I didn't get a positive until after I'd missed a 2nd period. I don't remember the exact dates, but I had AF in late Jan, no AF in Feb, and tested pos in late March (after AF should have come the 2nd time) after testing neg several times in late Feb and early March. I had a dating ultrasound b/c my periods can be a little wonky and we weren't sure when in those 2 months DS had been conceived, but from the US it looked like he was conceived in mid-Feb before the 1st missed AF.

I've heard of many people being pregnant and NEVER getting a + on a dollar tree test.

I was at 13 and 14dpo.

I'd get an FRER or a CBE.

According to EPT, my 15yo doesn't exist. I was a month and a half pregnant, took a test and it was negative. I was so relieved. I went to the health dept to get on the pill in order to avoid future scares like that and found out I was prego. Oops.

With dc 1, NEVER I popped neg even the day at 4 months when I went to the doc, with dc 2, 23 dpo, and I was charting I KNEW when we conceived, I think I tied with another lady at Ovusoft for the longest waits for the +, we both got them at 23 dpo, lol

Dollar store tests SUCK!!! I had never used them before but this time I tried it out. I ended up stressing out testing compulsively and starting to believe I was either very sick or going into very early menopause and then I finally broke down and got a clear blue easy digital as a last ditch attempt. I had a window for my period but even by the lastest possible date, I was six days late and still getting negative dollar store tests. I believe I was really more like 10 days late.

Out of everyone I've known in person who have taken those tests, they've ALL had problems. A pregnant friend even took one when she was 7 months along to prove to me that they don't work. But, people here seemed to love them and I was strapped for cash so I tried it. Never, ever again. I was so stressed out and I spent a ton on the tests anyway (a dollar adds up pretty quickly). Get another test, any kind.
