it should be the same as ttc the "regular" way! So, depends on your particular test, and how your body produces hcg. Sorry. I know some people get positives as early as 9dpo, but usually it's closer to 12dpo. Good luck!

For greater things are yet to come...

The longer you wait, the more accurate the test will be.  I would wait until the day you normally get your period.  Good luck!
