Re: negitive preg test... was it too early to test?

it is really too early to test. It takes about 10 days for a fertalized egg to inbed into the lining of the uterus (im sorry im grasping at words today). Most pregnancy tests can detect pregnancy the day of your missed period. some a few days earlier. Some women it doesnt show for a week or so after... others.., well everyones different. Id test maybe the day of, and then a week later or get a blood test (im not familier with those).

Sorry im really tired (can't you tell?) Maybe some of the other women can help you.

Re: negitive preg test... was it too early to test?

Even though you are having some symptoms, it's still too early to test. Like the other poster stated, it takes about 10 days for the fertilized egg to implant in your uterus and your body to start producing the hcg hormone that the tests detect. If you have a normal 28-day cycle, you would have ovulated around 14 days after the start of your last period. Fertilization would have happened within a day or 2 and then it takes about 10 days for it to implant, which is usually only a few days before your period is due, so even the most sensitive pregnancy tests can only detect a pregnancy up to 4 or 5 days before your period is due. There are few women who get a positive result a little sooner than that, but most likely it's because they ovulated before day 14 of their cycle. You could still be pregnant but 9 days early would be too soon to detect with a pregnancy test unless you ovulated about 5 days early in your cycle. You can test again with an "early results" test a couple days before your period, but keep in mind that the results are only about 66% accurate until the day your period is due (they're supposedly 99% accurate at that point), so you could still get a false negative.

its definitealy too early. I tested on day 28 in the morning and came back negative. 2.5 days later i had a blood test at the dr and it came back positive with an HCG level of 227... so really your HCG changes so quickly you cant go by this test. you should really wait until your missed period

way too early. you could be having pms symptoms or even false pregnancy symptoms just from worrying about it. wait until you're late then test. good luck!
