When is the ideal time to a pregnancy test at home? I'm at 9dpo, did a test and came out negative..just wondering..hoq did it turn out for others?

Hi if your periods are regular then you can do 1 day after missed period. Date post ovulation did not work for me, it's better to wait till you miss your periods.

One week after missed period you’ll get correct result.

Yes, I understand that...but the wait is terrible...Just want to know if anyone got a positive at home test 3 days before the start date of periods...

It's too early to be doing a urine pregnancy test at 9dpo. For reliable results urine test should be performed one day after a missed period.
A beta HCG test which is a blood test is more sensitive than a urine pregnancy test and can be done as early as 12dpo.
