I am at day 24 of my cycle and I have really sore, tender breasts. I have been pregnant before and this was the first symptom that I had then. What is the first date that I can test? Are there early detection detection tests that I can buy in the chemist or are they really expensive? My cycle is usually 28 - 30 days so guess I may just have to wait but patience is a virtue I have never really possessed!!
First response and clearblue claim that you could test 5 days early. I tested 3 days early last time, with a very very faint response (I thought I could have imagined the BFP), the same the next day, and then only at 1 day early did I get a properly strong result. But then each woman varies with the amount of the HSG hormone in her, so it could be more successful for you!
well i've just used the second of my buy one get one free first response tests (yesterday). i tested 7 and 5 days before i was due. i am an idiot but seem to treat pg tests like boxes of chocs in that if theyre in the house, theyll get opened!
i know full well that 4 days before is the earliest you can resonably expect a bfp.
I sympathise noonar, it is just too much temptation if they are there. Trouble is they are quite expensive and you always end up doing more than one - either to try again a few days later or if you get a BFP, just to be sure What signs of pg have you got noonar?
Anyway guess i could give it a go tomorrow, boobs really painful.
Dont know enough about it to say if it could be implantation, but cramping and spotting can be signs of v early pg. Unfortunately sometimes its just PMS too. Thats the frustrating thing - many of the PMS symptoms are the same as PG, so maybe thats why my boobs are sore. Anyway good luck noonar, praps we should both go out and invest in tests tomorrow and report back!
