    Some tests say they can tell you before your bleeding ever appears so who knows.   You can try again within the week i would think.

    in the TTC group women test like nine days post ovulation.  I always wait until I know I'm late, because with my first, I had no symptoms.  Shocked the crap out of me when the test read positive!

    I had the same problem! My periods were always so screwy that I thought for sure I was just "late" and it'd show up. I was slightly crampy, felt bloated, thought for SURE my period was coming. One of the girls from work laughed at me and told me I was pregnant. I argued with her for a full week past when AF was supposed to show up...then I tested...and I say on the toilet laughing hysterically because I had no symptoms either...even though light cramps and bloated feeling kind of are symptoms lol

    See thats the thing I dont know if that spotting was another 'period' or 'implantation' bleeding I've seen something about that around the Net. Thats whats so frustrating about my PCOS for me atleast, i can go months without any period (but I know thats not pregnancy cause I wasnt sexually active then of course lol) but sometimes I can get 2 periods a month, REALLLLYY bad cramps like not able to get out of bed, kind of bad. then sometimes it comes around the same time for a few months like recently its been the 1st-9th, give or take a few days.  So I think for now (so I dont waste a preg.test) I'm going to anxiously wait until the 9th to test.... this is all just so scary for me only because I had a miscarriage at 17 because of my PCOS. so just completely on edge with my body acting this way. yet in a weird way I know I'll be devestated if I'm not...even tho I know I'm still too young. Just that yearning to be a mom inside is screaming TEST TEST TEST. Ugh. anyone else ever feel like that? I feel crazy lol
