How many days past ovulation can i test??

I know this question has been answered so many times.. period isnt due till the 19th or 20th.. im having morning sickness and bad heartburn.. which i never get.. very tired and just blah.. i dont get pms until the day of af.. my fiance is buying me a first reponse 4 day early test.. so im wondering do you think i could get a postive reading now.. i think i o'd the 11th.. well thats when cm was really watery and i was also taking robitussin at the time which made cm so runny it would just gush out when i would stand up.. ive had cramps for the past couple days and a pressure feeling in my lower left side.. maybe gas.. but if someone could give me a bit of their experience or some info it would be greatly appreciated.. Thankies..

I BELIEVE I OVULATED ON THE 4TH OR 5TH NOT SURE. I HAVE BEEN HAVING THE SAME SYMPTOMS YOU ARE HAVING. AF IS SUPPOSED TO START TOMORROW, BUT I AM HOPING AND PRAYING THAT IT DOESN'T. I TOOK A TEST ON THE 14TH SAW FAINT PINK LINES. SO I DON'T THINK IT IS TOO SOON FOR YOU TO TEST. I ALSO HAD CRAMPING ABOUT 4-5 DAYS AFTER OVULATION I THINK YOU MAY BE PG. KEEP US POSTED

I'm pretty sure that I ovulated on the 3rd of July. I tested yesterday (mid-day after drinking a huge glass of juice no less) and got a positive.  That means that I tested 12 days post-ovulation and got a positive result.  I don't know about testing earlier than that but I suppose that you may be able to get a positive as early as 11 days post-o.  However, I think that the accuracy of a negative result is nebulous that early- meaning that you could easily test negative now and be pregnant.  Good luck!!

I used ept.  Those have always seemed pretty reliable to me.  You know, if you do an internet search for home pregnancy tests and HCG levels detected there are some sites that will tell you about each individual brand and what level they test for.  Then you can choose the one that picks up the lowest level.  Good luck to you, I know the waiting is really hard!  Annie

Hey guys,
         First of all i would just like to say thanx for all your support and thanx for giving your bext advice to me.. Thanx for everything.. I got a first response 4 day early test but the funny thing is that it said 3 days in the instrutions.. well it was negative.. af is due the 20th so i guess she will be here.. im really upset.. and im the one going around telling ppl to keep their heads up when i cant do the same ~Sighs~.. i dont understand.. im really tired.. cramps for the past week.. heartburn indegestion.. nausea.. and i never get this before a period.. i have never felt like this.. im not stressed.. and the only time i get cramps is the day of my period.. so maybe she gonna start bring this along every month.. well im gonna go.. and thanx everyone for being here for me.. ***HUggsss***

Maybe it was too early to test or your levels might be too low.  Take a test w/your first morning urine.  Sorry to hear that it didn't turn out right yet, but hopefully it will...try not to get discouraged...keep us posted, lots of love and best wishes to you

I got the 4 day test too and got a negative at 4 days before I was due to get my period.  I only tested positive the day before or the day I was due to get my period (sorry, I can't remember exactly which).  Only something like 56% of positive results will show up that early, as opposed to 98% or something like that when you get closer to your expected date of menstruation.  If you said it was due the 20th, try to hold off until then and test then.  It's really hard I know, but it just may be too early.

I think 10 days past ovulation is still too soon. I know most people wait to test until 14 dpo.
good luck

Hi all~

This probably sounds crazy. This month was my first time TTC. My partner and I did an at home artificial insemination with donor sperm. I inseminated the day after my surge and the day after that. October 3 and 4.  Within literally two or three days I became EXHAUSTED.  Like I can't get out of bed in the morning even when I've gotten plenty of sleep, and I need to nap every day. My nipples are slightly sore now, but I'm wondering if this is all in my head. AF is due around Oct. 17. Could I really be THIS excited to get pregnant that I am creating symptoms before they are biologically possible???

Google INSTEAD CUPS.. They are sold at some Walgreens too.. This is the best 6 bucks you will ever spend because these cups holds the sperm to your cervix for 12 hours! All you have to do is know your ovulation pattern and do it 2 days before and the day of! Just a little ole' tale that has went around for years~ male sperm swim faster but die off sooner, female swim slower and live longer~ If wanting a girl then try to conceive 2 days before ovulation and a boy you should try on the day of ovulation! This isn't 100% accurate but it is believed to happen by many! Just thought I would join in the chat.. ~Miranda~

Hi everyone. I got my last period on 27th May. They are irregular but think my next is due 30th June. Had unprotected sex with my partner on three occassions just before ovulation. I ovulated 12th June and ever since I am feeling tired. Last night I was running a temperature and felt flu like symptoms. I even had to change my pjs during the night I was sweating so badly. This moring however I felt fine, just very tired. I have been cranky and irritable the last two days. From ovulation day onwards I have had a dull ache in my lower back and an uncomfortable feeling in my tummy. My breasts are unbelievably painful. I have been craving coffee which I never drink and have gone off butter and scones, which I usually love. I feel yucky and bloated and gassy and generally very unnattractive!! Do you think I could be pregnant?
