Ok, so this is my first month trying after 5 yr IUD so I am trying to refresh my memory. AF is due to show up in about 6-7 days that would be 1 month since last mp. Not sure if I am an every 28 or more day

I like first response... I remember when I was pregnant with my son 8 years ago, I brought a different brand pg test and it came back negative.. that same day i went out and brought first response and it came back with the very faint 2nd line... I think you can take that pg test as early as 4 days before your AF is due... Best of luck to you! :)

I too agree with First Response Early Result (there is a coupon on their website to print off as well!). I am currently pregnant with my son and I was charting while TTC and this test showed up clearly positive 4 days before my period was even due. Good luck!

Dollar store tests are great since they're so cheap, you don't necessarily feel bad pissing away a dollar if it's too early to test! You could always test early with cheapies & confirm with an frer when you get a bfp. Just stay away from blue dye tests -always look for pink dye!

Do you have a rough idea when you O'd? The earliest chances of getting a bfp are 10dpo but you'll have a better chance if you can wait til 12 dpo.

    So I decided to purchase the first response early pg test. I found a box of three from costco.com. They were 16.00 and change, that was s/h included and tax, so not bad I thought. So we'll see what happens!! :)

    I like First Response. I pay $2 per test. (3 pack sold as "2 test, with bonus free third test") In stores, the 2 pack is usually around $8. I've seen the tests sold in 3 packs (normal, not bonus "free" test), but they're always more money per test.
