21 Day test

Is this done 7 days after ovulation? i.e 14 days plus 7 if your cycle is text book?

I ask as I think I ovulated on CD 18, which means that a standard 21 day test would be too early? I reckon it should be done on CD 25.

hi Gbear, i had this done recently and doc was v. specific about it being day 21, he didnt ask me to calc ov dates, but according to persona i think i ovulated around day 12-13. Not sure if that is too late or really what it means. tbh not even sure what they test for on this test, was first thing i have ever had done and am waiting for results.
sorry not much help.

hi pussycat are you still there?

I think the day 21 test assumes you ovulate on day 14 and have this text book 28 day cycle that few have! I went for mine on CD35 having OV'd on CD28 according to FF and Clearblue Digital OPK test (the smiley face is such a good idea!)
