Default When can I test? AND What is going on here?

I'm on cycle day 17 and my cycle is usually 28 days. But what tests are usually sensitive enough to test before your AF should arrive?

If this is TMI, I am very sorry, but when they say that you can implantation bleeding, how much should there be?

The earliest I've tested +++ is 10 dpo, but my usual +++ tests come at 11 dpo. It's more important to know the day you O than your cycle length.

If you O'd on a typical CD 14, then you're only 3 dpo and no test (not even a blood test) will be positive because a baby wouldn't have implanted yet. I wouldn't test earlier than CD 25.

As for the implantation bleeding, I've never had it... but I don't imagine it's supposed to be a lot.

I've never had implantation bleeding, but I've heard that it's minimal.

I think the earliest tests that advertise usually say 5 days before your period is due, but personally I don't waste my money buying tests until I'm about 8-10 days late, too many false alarms, and a lot of wasted cash!!

Sending you 'positive' vibes!

I'm just starting to get impatient! I know I have to be patient, but I'm always at a friends house and she just had a baby and I'm always taking care of her because I love her and she's so cute!
