View Full Version : HPT Question
I have a question about a preg test.
I got one last night called Pregnosis Clear, it is suposed to be able to give you a result 7-10 days after conception. AF is due 3/10, and so far I have had none of my usual AF symptoms. Anyway i did the test, and it was Negative. So how reliable are these tests?
The way it goes is that a positive is rarely wrong, but a negative might mean that there is not enough HCG (pregnancy hormone that the HPTs measure) in your urine yet to react on the test.
Don't stress yet - The thing is, these tests often say that they are accurate before AF is due....And they CAN be - but aren't necessarily.
Until you get AF, or 2 lines, don't take a negative as a negative. But I would definately wait until AF is actually late before wasting more tests! HCG doubles in your urine (and blood stream) approximately every 2 days - so if you get a negative the day after AF is due, for example, I'd wait another 2 days until you do another.
The best time is to use them is on or after the first day of your missed period.
Thanks for that girls!!!!!!!!
Also, just thought I'd add - despite what the tests might say, the best time to test is first thing in the morning, as the urine is most concentrated at that time of the day - thus so is the amount of HCG in the urine.
