Ok.. I seem to have fogot basic reproductive 101.. here's my question.. to figure out how long your cycle is you count from day one on period 1 to day one of period 2 right??

I am asking b-cuz I think I am late and want to know if I should buy a regular pregnany test or an early detection one. Yes... were are trying that is why I want to know.

Yes, you count from the first day of the previous period, but not including the first day of the next one (which you obviously havent had or you wouldnt be thinking you might be pregnant). Good luck!

I would think the early detection test would work regardless, given that they are likely more sensitive to the hormone and that's why they work earlier. But I could be wrong!

I used first response when i found out i was pregnant. You can take it up to 5 days before your period is due. :) Good luck!

I would try NFP.. but I know that I could not be as consistent as it asks...plus..I like the randomness of the fun part!! hehe

I know it will happen..I'm going to calculate my fertile days now...

NFP can be as simple as checking for fertile mucus and marking the "slippery" days on the calendar. You dont have to bother with charting your temperature at all.
