Anyone tested early with Home Preg test?

We just did our first IVF cycle with DE. Has anyone tested early with a home pregnancy test? Since we did not use the trigger shot with DE, how early can we test. Has anyone had any success with that?

Yes, I tested early, d14pER, or 11 days pET. I tested the morning of my first Beta. Got a BFN!!! Went in, did my Beta and went home and slept for 2 to 3 hours. The nurse called me and said "congratulations your pregnant" I can't even tell you how absolutely shocked I was.!!!! Those HPT's are evil. Oh, BTW my first Beta was 350!!!! I still tested neg when I POAS. So, I know it's so hard to wait, but I would not trust the neg. reasult of a HPT. (you can get a false neg. and only get a false pos. if you have had an HCG trigger shot). HTH
I also know many others that test neg. and turned out to be preggers.

The only time I didn't test with an HPT was when I finally actually got pregnant.

I tested with a HPT 4 days before my period was due and got a faint positive. I did about 4 more tests that weekend and sure enough all were positive. About 34 weeks later, my twins arrived. Good luck
