Hi ladies I'm new here but excited to talk to people going through similar situations. My husband and I have been TTC for a year with no luck. I have 2 children from a previous marriage and he doesn't have any so we were starting to think it was possibly a fertility prob on his end. I've really started tracking my cycles and hope I'm on to something... I should have started 4/7 but I took a test 4/9 and didn't see anything. When is a good time to test so I dont have to keep getting my hopes up?

HI laneybmom4855! Welcome to Mothering! The longer you wait, the more accurate the test will be. At 13 DPO, there is still only a 68% chance the test is correct. Good luck!

Based on a 25 mIU sensitive test - the sensitivity should be listed on the box or on the leaflet. DPO = Days past Ovulation

10 dpo : 35%
11 dpo : 51%
12 dpo : 62%
13 dpo : 68%
14 dpo : 74%
15 dpo : 80%
16 dpo : 88%
17 dpo : 92%
