Smile New on Here Hi!!

Hi All,

Greetings to the forum

My name is bridgid by the way and this is the first time im TTC.

I am currently at 3 dpo i think?

I took a fertility test on Fri 27th June which showed an LH surge.
I BD'ed that night around 9pm.

I retook the fertility test on Mon 30th June. No LH surge was detected. Does this mean i ovulated between the 27th and 30th June? I ask this because i did not do the test in the days before the 27th so i am not exactly sure what day the LH surge occured.

Could i still get pregnant?
I havent felt any signs or anything i feel pretty normal.

When is the earliest i could test?

Any help would be appreciated

Baby dust to all!! xx

Hi Bridgid and welcome to TBC!!!

I've never tested positive before 10 or 11 days past ovulation.

Best of luck!

Welcome! I am no expert. My DH and I have the bed every other day method to cover all bases.

Don't forget that sperm can live inside for a few days, and it is better to have them waiting to catch the egg.

The ovulation kit predicts the surge which occurs before ovulation, so you probably would have ovulated 12 - 36 (not sure how long the window is) hours after that. I would go by the day after you saw the surge and count from there before you test.

I agree with Deanna, wait at least 10 to 11 days. You waste money on tests (then again, some of us waste money on tests anyways - right Deanna?)

Good luck - sending lots of baby dust your way!

Welcome to TBC! You could possibly get pregnant but you should just relax(easier said than done) and test at 10 or 11 DPO! Good luck and lots of dust to you.

You should try the opk's starting at CD7 and go through when you think you typically O and see if your surge lines are darkening.

You want to have sex the days leading up to the surge line and that day.... Generally, after that you have missed your window....

Don't do a pg test till about 10-11 days post ovulation as the other ladies have said... they just don't work...
