How long do you wait to test?

Postby RacheleLynn » Sun Nov 08, 2015 5:06 pm

My doctor gave me a nice timeline of when I should do everything after my IUI on October 31, and it says to test on Friday November 13th. Does anybody push the envelop and test early or do you keep your fingers crossed until that 14 dpo date?

A good portion of us test early, but keep in mind when you do that, that you're taking on the potential for unnecessary heartache if you are actually pregnant and you just didn't have high enough levels of hcg. That being said, it's really hard not to test early! I'm 12 DPIUI today and I tested and got a bfn so I'm simultaneously feeling heart broken while reminding myself that it's too early for most people to get their bfps. Good luck with which ever method you choose! Sending big hugs and baby dust! xoxoxo

@molinari - I am 10dpIUI, but on my chart I show that I am 9DPO. I tested last night, it seemed like a really faint line, but then when I take a picture of it, it doesn't look like anything :( So I guess I will keep trying, and not get my feelings hurt or my hopes up.

Did you use a trigger shot this cycle? I did so I have been testing since 5DPIUI to test it out of my system. This morning I took a test and I didn't see any line and then when I went to throw it out an hour later I noticed a VERY faint line. Not sure if it was because it was sitting there. Maybe evap or something? I'm freaking out. I'll test again tomorrow morning. Wishing you luck! Keep us updated!

I did use a trigger shot, for the first time, which I didn't know it had to get out of my system. So yesterday I tested again, and there was nothing there, so it was probably just the trigger shot.

When did you test and find it was out of your system? So you did IUI 3 days before me. So there is still hope! I hope that line is even stronger for you for your next test! Good Luck!

I think that yesterday was the last little bit that was in my system because today was stark white BFN. 13DPIUI and I'm pretty sure I'm out! Wishing you luck!

Hi everyone,
I had IUI #1 and now 12dpo. I've been driving myself crazy testing early and getting discouraged. Had BFN again this morning. Still have a few more days of hope!!
