Does anyone know how early you can test? I am pretty sure First Response say 4 days before period is due but is this accurate? Is it more likely to be accurate if you wait until period is actually late?

My periods were irregular and it came up + on day 28 for me but I have heard others testing early and it has worked.

9 days post conception. I used a Boots test 9 days after the night I conceived

over 2 weeks before my period was due

wow! You must have had super strong hormone!
Guess mine realy is bfn then . Was just hoping they weren't accurate!

flowertot - you can easily get a false negative if you're testing before you are due. I think that First Response reckon they get around 65% of pregnancies at 4 days before due date and this percentage goes up each day - so if you test on due date it is 99% accurate.

Looks like AF is on her way so further testing unneccessary this month!

I got a -ve with first response with ds2+3.
Try boots own, they are FAB imo.

Bet Boots own are much cheaper as well. Going to have to calm down a bit over this testing lark though - can't be doing it every month 'just to see'!! Going to have to learn to be patient.......

I tested negative 1 day before with first response and positive on due date with clear blue digital.
