    I am 9 dpo today and I was thinking of testing today. Since this is my first charting cycle, I am not sure when to start testing? When do all of you start testing?

    I make myself wait until the day af is due. For me, I'd rather wait and know that's it's probably right than get a bfn before and wonder if it's really negative or not. But everyone's different. Good luck, hope you get an early positive

    I personally have never gotten a positive result before AF was actually due even using the "can detect 5 days before your missed period" tests. Just so you don't get a false negative, either wait till AF is due or at least use first morning urine whatever day you choose to test. IT will be the most concentrated and have the best chance of showing a positive when testing early. Good luck and Baby dust!!
