    How many days after a known ovulation date can a positive pregnancy test show?
    I have been taking the medicine Clomid & have been really trying to get pregnant. My question is simple - I know the best time to test for pregnancy is after your missed period but my number of days between change. Last month it was 28 days & I circled the day on my calender that I could take an at home pregnancy test. However I didn't ovulate until later in the month (I know this because I have been taking at home ovulation tests - I ovulated almost 6 days later than I expected too - day 19 from the first day of my last period). I ovulated on Sept 29 - when should I take an at home pregnancy test? I took one yesterday & of course it came up negative - but I don't think I gave it enough time. I wanted an expert opinion - then I can deal with a negative result & not have the hope that maybe I tested too early. Thank you in advance for your time.

    This is different for every woman. The amount of time it takes for the hcg hormone to build up varies from person to person.

    I typically like to wait until around 2 weeks after the missed period. But again it varies as every woman's body is different.

    I realize that some tests tell you that you can test the day after the missed period, however, these tests give more false positives.

    Unfortunately it is all a waiting game.

    No, it isn't any fun. I wish I had a more definitive answer for you, but that is really the best there is.

    I was wanting some sympathy:) I went to the doctor yesterday to have some blood work done since I still had not started my period. They took a urine pregnancy test & there WAS a really faint line - which suggested that I was pregnant. I was SOOOOO excited! I was really surprised because I didn't really feel any different - but believe me I was happy. Then this morning the nurse called and said my HCP (think that's right - you know what I mean) was really low. Which meant that I was NOT pregnant. This is such an emotional roller coaster! I'm OK - just disappointed. They prescribed my Provera to make me start - then I will begin my third round of Clomid. So - maybe next month:) Just wanted some much needed sympathy.

    Best to wait until you see if you are actually late for a period and test at that time if need be. While some women will get an accurate result fairly early, they are more accurate if testing is done after a period doesn't show. See what happens in November when your period is due.

    Also, be sure you follow the directions exactly for the tests. Reading them only within the time frame stated on the test. A true positive will show up within that time. If you come back later to read it, you could be seeing an evaporation line that can look like a faint positive.

    If you are taking clomid or other fertility medicines, you are going to "feel pregnant" because the meds are pumping hormones into your body. I have "felt pregnant" many many times without actually being pregnant. I have one miracle baby and I did not feel any different to know that I was pregnant with him until I started puking at about 6 weeks into the pregnancy. I would keep testing... you can buy accurate pregnancy tests at the dollar store. I always have about 10 in my bathroom--no joke! They also sell ovulation predictors...

    Hi,

    I know it is hard to wait, but try to give it several extra days if your period is late. Sometimes periods can be off a bit, so a few days late is not unusual.
