Today, I suddenly have the bone-crunching tiredness, hungover nausea/headache, and the rock-hard boobs that have grown 2 whole cup sizes overnight, that I had when I got pregnant last September (pregnancy ended with an ERPoC in November).

Last time, these symptoms started about a week after conception; I'd never had them before, they stayed around the whole time I was pregnant/ while bHCG was still up in the 1000s, and they went away completely once my bHCG levels were back to near zero.

Periods seem to be a bit all over the place since coming off the pill mid last year. I've had one 28-day cycle and one 18-day cycle and was pregnant/post-ERPoC the rest of the time.

LMP started Friday 15 January, finished Monday 18 Jan.

DTD Friday 22 Jan., Sunday 24 Jan., Tuesday 26 Jan.

Had EWCM Weds 27 Jan.

So if I assume a cycle of 28 days or a bit shorter, period is due Friday 12 Feb or a bit before, and thus I can't really test until Monday 8th Feb. at the earliest, and a negative won't be accurate until Friday 12th or later?

Is that correct?

(Obviously, I was hoping I'd got the numbers wrong and could nip off to the supermarket for a test today...)

Yep. Test any earlier and you may as well be peeing on a fiver!
