A normal cycle can be 28-34 days. Mine are actually 40-42 days, every woman is different. How long is your typical cycle?
If it is a typical month cycle then you more than likely O'd 2 weeks after your first cycle day, count 2 weeks after your O day and that's when AF is due. Test after that date.
Do you temp/take your BBT basal body temperature? Taking your BBT and charting on site like www.fertilityfriend.com is a great way to get to know your cycle.

It's normally best to wait until you're at least 14DPO to test, which is right around when your AF is due. Testing before hand may not give you the most accurate results. Testing with a VERY sensitive HPT may detect an early pregnancy but you may end up going on to have your period. Many pregnancies end in MC but many women never know they're pregnant. I wouldn't want to put myself on that kind of emotional rollercoaster. Also, testing early with a regular test may give you a false negative. It may be too early to tell you are pregnant using a HPT, You may really be pregnant, there's just not enough HCG in your system to be picked up on an HPT. My AF is due Friday, and I'm about go go crazy. I tested this morning and got a BFN, but I'm thoroughly convinced I'm pregnant. I could really be, or AF could be on her way, it's just too soon to tell.
