Trying to conceive

What do you lot think about the '4 days before af due' cheapie tests? I have about 3 or 4 days left until af is due (not entirely sure what day i ov'd) but as usual getting very impatient. I have about 6 internet early tests so not short, but don't know whether i should force myself to wait or to do one tomorrow morning? I know it's best to wait but do these early ones actually work like they say?
Thanks in advance

some people can't wait but I find it really dissapointing when it's a bfn! for me I know when af is about to appear so I don't poas anymore but up to you. they say it's best to wait as the result is more accurate.

I got my first BFP 4 days before AF with an internet cheapy BUT it was very very very faint! In fact so faint it took ym husband 3 days and lots of different tests to convince him I was pregnant haha! I would wait - I am due Friday and determined to wait until Saturday - seeing that BFN is so upsetting, even when you know there is a chance that you could be.

I would wait... I tested early when we were ttc our daughter... We got a positive, 4 days before af and 2 days before af... then day after af was due I started to bleed and test was negative... I was told Id had a chemical pregnancy and if I hadnt tested early Id have never gone thru that upset xx

I got a very very faint BFP 5 days before my period was due with DS then they got stronger everyday - I think they are reliable. But like all tests best with FMU in the early days x

Hazzerr a chemical pregnancy is pretty much when the egg becomes fertilized but then for some reason or other doesnt't implant or is rejected. Apparantly it is quite common and if you didn't take tests early you probably owuld never know about it - your period would just come on as normal.
It's another big reason to not test early
Yes similar cycles - I am waiting until Saturday!!! I m determined to wait until Saturday!! WHen will you test?

chemical pregnancy is when a sperm fertilises an egg but and so hcg starts to be produced but there is chromosomal inaccuracies which mean the fertilised egg will never develop past cell division before the pregnancy fails. This normally happens around the same time as you'd get your period and it's why some people don't even realise they're pregnant. In a way that's why its better if you test say a week after your period because you're less likely to pick up hcg of a fertilised egg that's never going to become a fetus and feel as though you've experienced a mc. Which in a way I guess it is, but at this point is just a collection of cells and literally nothing more x

Hello everyone, I was bad and couldn't resist, I did a test tuesday morning, but i don't know what to make of it as the control line was really faint, I'm a bit out of practice with testing so maybe i didn't dip long enough. I'm kinda glad in a way as if the control line was faint then the other line would definitely be too faint to see IF there was to be one. Only 2 or 3 days til af anyway so just have to wait and see x
