I had 8 HPT's under my side of the sink! LMAO - I broke down and bought 5 dollar store ones (which says compare to EPT and isnt that high HCG- like 100 or something? Ok, going on peeonastick.com LOL) and then I have 3 FRER! Tomorrow I am 3dp5dt - when is everyone's vote that I start testing?! I am kind of motivated to start tomorrow but I dont want to crack out the FRER's too soon, I believe them to be more accurate than the dollar store one's, at least in my mind (maybe because they cost more hehe).... Your vote?!
I started to say that you should test out the trigger, but then remembered you had a FET. I'm not one to ever believe a BFN earlier than 12dpo. So, if you start testing now and get a BFN it's easy enough to shrug them off as too early because it must likely IS too early. If you're going for accuracy, I would say wait until at least 7dp5dt. Of course a BFN at 7dp5dt might still be too early, too.
Well it is easy to shrug off a BFN, although it still sucks seeing it I tested with the Dollar Store brand this morning at 3dp5dt and got a BFN... I couldnt even sleep right last night so excited to wake up and pee on a stick LOL... I was hoping to be lucky enough to see a faint line but its completely white on the testing side... aaahhh well, I figured now that I have started I might as well keep going and test everyday until I run out of tests LOL Last IVF, I couldnt bare to use a HPT, I was afraid of the answer but this time, I am dying to know!!
If you want a for sure answer, I'd wait. But if you are just wanting to POAS and have then, then do it! Just don't get too frustrated if they are BFN.

I will be the bad one and say start asap However I had purchased 50 so...I didnt want mine to expire You just have to be prepared to see a BFN on 3 days and not to let it get you down! I just LOVE seeing the very first inkling of a shadow of a line which is why I am an early tester. Most people dont get a positive that early because really its the equivalent to 8dpo...so just keep in mind if you do see a negative, on average its a whole 5 more days before you should test.
