Am I being a durr brain? HPT question

OK I'm really confused.

The 'should I test early' sticky thread says this

"First response claim the accuracy of pregnancy tests is as follows:

11dpo 69%, 12 dpo 83%, 13dpo 93%"

However, the First Response, (neg) test I have just done said can be done 6 days before AF. (actually it would appear this means 5 actual days before)

My 6 days before AF = 8dpo

My AF due day = 12dpo

First Response also claims the test is not affected by Clomid.

I have not had the HGC

I don't understand what the difference is and why the recommendation is in dpo. I am very confused!

I don't want to clutch at straws here but I do need to understand the test.

RE: Am I being a durr brain? HPT question

the manufacturers use an 'average' cycle for these, i.e. 28 days with ovulation on cd 14. so 6 days before AF for them is 12dpo.

Ahh ok, I am 23/24 days with ovulation on CD11/12 so that makes sense.

Thanks for the reply!
