Similar concerns regarding inaccurate labeling led the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to issue guidelines advising against the use of the term “greater than 99% accuracy” on home pregnancy tests.   For that to be true, a test would have to detect hCG at levels as low as 12 mIU/ml when, in fact, many are in the range of 40 mlU/ml and higher. Many home pregnancy tests claim to be 99 percent accurate. However, home pregnancy tests differ in the ability to diagnose pregnancy in women who have recently missed a period. If you have a negative test but think you might be pregnant, repeat the test one week after your missed period or talk to your health care provider.

Doctors often order these tests to confirm pregnancy as early as 10 days after conception. Some can detect hCG much earlier. A quantitative hCG test (beta hCG) measures the exact amount of hCG in. The main problem is accuracy. Early pregnancy tests are more accurate the closer you get to your expected period.

Two of the leading brands of early pregnancy tests claim the accuracy rate is 99%, when used 3 days before your expected period. If you were to test 5 days before your expected period, however, the accuracy rate would be only 76%. The closer you are to the expected start of your menstrual period, the more accurate early pregnancy tests become. Why Accurate Tests and Early Pregnancy Detection Matters.

The first few weeks of pregnancy are critical to fetal development, so early prenatal care. The First Response Early Result manual test is the most sensitive over-the-counter pregnancy test you can buy. It gives accurate results as or more quickly than most of the tests. How accurate it is: This at-home pregnancy test can be taken as early as four days before your expected period—trouble is, it’s only 51 percent accurate at that time.

But take it one day before your expected period, and that stat jumps way up to 95 percent, and on the day of your expected period, it’s 99 percent accurate. How accurate is a pregnancy test taken five days before your period is due? ‘This depends on the sensitivity of the test,’ says Mr Pisal. ‘Some of the widely available early pregnancy tests can be. Urine home pregnancy tests are about 99% accurate. Blood tests are even more accurate than this. Waiting at least a week after a missed period.

Data shows that the First Response Early Result manual test’s findings are also especially accurate, likely because it can detect all four of the different forms of hCG.

List of related literature:

One week after conception there’s hCG in your urine, but it’s not enough for the HPT to pick up—which means that if you test seven days before your expected period, you’re likely to get a false negative even if you’re pregnant.

Though some hCG is in your urine a week after conception, it’s not likely to be enough to register on the HPT—which means that if you test 7 days before your expected period, you’re likely to get a negative result even if you’re pregnant.

These tests can be sensitive enough to detect the presence of hCG as early as 1 week after implantation or 4 to 5 days before a missed menstrual period.

They are accurate before the first missed menstrual period but are currently seldom used (Pagana & Pagana, 2009).

The results become more accurate with time, with the average early detection being around 1 week after a missed period.

Although research suggests that most home pregnancy tests don’t consistently spot pregnancy this early, home pregnancy tests are considered reliable when used according to package instructions one week after a missed period” (Mayo Foundation for Medical Information and Research [MFMIR], 2010b).

Serum assays can detect the presence of hCG as early as 5 days after fertilization, that is, before the missed menstrual cycle; however, because they require additional time and expertise to perform, they are often not utilized in a potentially emergent clinical setting.

“Beckmann and Ling's Obstetrics and Gynecology” by Robert Casanova

They are, however, more reliable beginning the 2nd week after a missed period.

These conceptions can nevertheless yield a temporarily positive pregnancy test, since the blastocyst (a very early form of the embryo) produces hCG which can be detected in the blood as early as 6 days after conception.

  • OMG! I’m in the same boat right now. Like, I KNOW I’m pregnant but I have to play the 2 week waiting game. In the meantime, I’ve been logging symptoms as well. So I’m definitely going to remember signs and symptoms you’ve mentioned.

  • Me currently… watching every video it feels like of early pregnancy symptoms. I’m currently 14 days late (I have irregular periods as it is so it’s normal for me to see 5-6 days late on my app) BUT still no period negative test last week dealing with sore/tender boobs and slight cramping here and there (I rarely get cramps when I’m on my period and RARLY get them as a sign my period is coming..)

  • Am at 13dpo tested at 10 & 11 dpo and all tested positive.I have just cramps,strong sense of smell and feels bloated.I just can’t wait ����

  • 10 dpo, i feel the symptoms..left pelvic pain..peeing..my tounge and lips feel like i still have the beef i eat two days ago. There is a dry beef fat..i starve and i wish it is a BFP, will wait one day missed period..

  • So I took a test and it was a faint positive 8dpo but after that the rest of the test were negative ���� I’m so confused! I’m 10dpo currently…. Any help?������

  • I have been feeling all these symptoms until now �� and I am waiting for the next week for doing my pregnancy test, and about the itching on your legs, the same happened to me for 2 days and later was itching my belly and now I am starving and I have just ate ����☺️ and about the nausea I think i have not because I am taking vegan prenatal vitamins which has folate and ginger and I think because of that I am not having nausea, thanks for your video

  • Not all women are intuitive in regards to their own body. My husband knew I was pregnant with my first around my missed period, while I didnt even notice that my period was a month late. Had he not made one random comment about being tested at an uncoming unrelated drs appt, idk how long itd have taken me to realize.

    Upon getting a positive test, he knew which day I conceived each kid with no knowledge of how far along I am and with irregular periods. Only exception is with my current pregnancy (baby number 4) but i think that may have to do with the state of our lives when i conceived.

    Also 22hrs into my induction with my second child my doctor went to manually break my water when we found that surprisingly my water had already broke. I actually didnt notice my water breaking. Thinking back we’re pretty sure water broke 4-5 days before my induction.

    Apparently being aware of my own body isnt my strong suit.

  • 2ww really is awful indeed, I’m in my 30th 2ww now. This video is much appreciated though, I’ve just been bingewatching these this cycle.
    I also conceived the cycle after my hsg, I lost that baby sadly though. I am also convinced that it helped me conceive.

  • This is our first month trying. I’m 7DPO. Yesterday I started feeling a dull cramping in my uterus and now today I am tasting metal and hot and exhausted. Lol. I am pretty sure now I am pregnant but at the same time I’m a realist and know it’s not usual to get pregnant so fast and that it’s far too early to really know. So it sucks just waiting for the news.

  • Omg girl, tomorrow I’ll be 7 days late, but I keep getting negative tests. I’ve been having all of these symptoms, like I’ve never felt hot flashes before and I thought I was going insane. I’ve been starving, my nipples are so sore, I’m dizzy, exhausted, and I’m getting that weird on-and-off cramping. I’m taking another test in the morning, hopefully I’ll get that BFP soon! ��

  • I have all these symptoms AND I had the insane itchiness on the lower half of my legs last night… so random. I’ve watched about 50 of these videos and you’re the first person to have had that too. Guess its time to take a test. Thanks for sharing ��

  • Aww I got pregnant in April 2019 as well..exactly the same dates..but my pregnancy ended up as a miscarriage, I was 8 weeks when I miscarried.. ��

  • If all goes as planned I’ll be due January 2021 ❤️ I’m currently having almost all the same symptoms…today I’m 5 DPO I’ll come back and update with my test ��

  • This is a nice video but I don’t understand why people say “we weren’t actively trying, but not preventing” but everything she did was actively monitor and try. ����‍♀️ weening off meds..stoping smoking, that’s all actively trying. Congrats thanks for the video.

  • Just have this feeling that I am never gonna have a baby of my own… sometimes it’s just an intuition. I have two uteruses and two cervixes I know many woman who have been lucky. I’ve been blessed with my fiancé’s littles and hopefully one day can have my own…

  • Once ovulation has occurred you have only a small window of opportunity to concieve. Your best chance of concieving is the four days BEFORE ovulation so in your case probably the 24th/ 23rd/ 22nd, not the 27th/28th….
    If you ovulated on the 25th you were already 1day post ovulation on the 26th

  • I had a tubal patency test 2.5 weeks ago! My tubes and ovaries are fine. I’m now in my 2 week wait and I’m SO HOPING we’re pregnant now. This is our 6th month trying. I have endo as well.

    My best friend is 12 weeks pregnant, so if I’m pregnant I’ll only be 2 months behind her!

  • What about cramping in thighs? Many women have reported restless legs as well. It’s about 8-9 DPO and not even a faint line on my negative test but I am SURE of this. Waiting a few more days to test again!

  • i am so glad I watched this video. The itchy leg thing happened to me literally yesterday and it was the most random thing ever! Subscribing!:D

  • I just received a Faded line on a pregnancy test. There’s many days I could have possibly became pregnant so I don’t know exactly when I conceived…. wish I would have waited longer before sharing my thoughts with others because it truly is disappointing to be doubted on something you feel so sure about. I’m experiencing ALL of the symptoms you talked about and more….vivid dreams… weird lower abdomen pains.. lower back.. nausea and hot flashes.. I’ve been getting sick in the morning and late afternoons. I’ve been on a regular cycle for 2 years. My bf doesn’t trust me and thinks I’m just “crazy”.

  • How to calculate dpo pls tell I’m also trying to get pregnant pls pls reply. last menstrual cycle is Jan 25 my ovulation period from jan 5 to10

  • im currently using the ovia app to help me get pregnant. though i am having some symptoms now that i may be pregnant but resisting the urge to test every day XD

  • Omg I had my HSG December 10th and got my period 5 days later ( after not having one for a year ). I’m in my two week wait now… you just gave me so much hope. I hope I conceive this cycle omg

  • Hag is not a draino to unclog pipes!!! So it doesnt have anything to do with improving pregnancy it is just a method to check nd define parameters.

  • Hmm appears strange that you claim in the beginning you weren’t TTC yet tracked your periods and every day you have unprotected sex. Then you tested and said you were disappointed when it was negative. Did you just not want your boyfriend to know you were secretly trying ��

  • You’re in AA! That’s awesome. I just came across your channel. I’m in recovery, too and TTC. Thanks for sharing your experience with early pregnancy. Definitely subbing!

  • me in my 30s: damn i must be old because i have no idea what she was talking about smoking… jooowing, dooowing… pods….what?��

  • Congrats!!!! Can you tell me when exactly is your due date?? I found it I was pregnant apr 29������.. My hcg level was 368 with no sac or yolk so I was a bit nervous but by 6/10… There I saw my bb������������ I had that same faint line and symptoms so i rushed to the hospital #it‘s a boy!!!!!
    Congratulations hunn, god bless

  • Loved it cool video congratulations and keep postinposting videos your a great speaker and story teller. Everyone else sucks at explaining shit tlike this

  • Pretty excited to know I have two of the most accurate ones on hand. But I recently decided if I don’t get my bfp in this cycle I would switch to bulk. I bought pregmate didn’t hear about that one here

  • I’ve been feeling tired, occasionally have heartburn and have had runny bm along with tension headaches on top of my head. I had very mild cramping (compared to my usual painful period cramps) for about 3-4 days which started 2 weeks prior to my period I’ve had noticeable (not painful, just uncomfortable) aching in my back, as if I did an extensive workout the day prior. So, I’ve had a few signs of pregnancy, but we will see how things go. I’m going to wait until the 4th or 5th of September to test when my HCG levels would be higher if I am in fact pregnant.

  • I have different brands.. Tested wed got a negitive. Tested today with same test and got positive.. Tested again today and it said no.. What does that mean

  • I am 6DPO today and having some cramping. I’m not due to start my period until August 9th and today is July 31st. I never remember cramping this early. Could it possible that I’m implanting? I heard that pregnancy cramps and period cramps feel the same.

  • Yeah I’m pregnant again Stuffy nose, little sore throat really light, back pain, tired, peeing, cravings, mood swings, smell sensitivity, nauseous

  • So I’ve taken 4 tests today. Clearblue digital was negative twice, & I took two First Response and they both came up POSITIVE. There were faint lines on both the first response, but the line was definitely there. Haven’t missed my period yet.. not due to come on until the end of next week. But I’m feeling a very mild cramping in my lower abdomen. No bleeding. What do you guys think?

  • So I’m looking at the one I’ve been taking is 1st step from the dollar store and it is 25… I’ve taken 4 of them but I’m on day one of missed period so I’m just super hopeful an excited to see an positive… fingers crossed an good luck to yall other mommy’s to be

  • Both my kids I took a doller store test and one time me and my husband went all out and got one from Walmart and it didn’t work and took them back and got another and it didn’t work either ( I got my period) but I’m always rooting for the doller store ones haha

  • I’ve used the dollar tree tests Assurance, first response, equate, and some internet cheapies & I had only one early but lost pregnancy years ago with Equate

  • Dollar tree. Because i can buy three or four without waiting for amazon to misplace my things and without worrying about ppl stealing my packages

  • there is a tablet inside the tests, but it is to keep the odor of urine from smelling not a plan b, she’s crazy �� but baby dust to you! ��

  • For the dollor store, dollor tee, Amazon and Walmart both dollor test and 3 dollars ever time I swear by I have tryed and the dollar ones always show up before the name brand even first response showed neg when my dollor ones say yes and my doc said yes. So dollor store definitely is 25 or lower. If u are testing why early though do wait 7 min then look because they say don’t look after 10 min. But a lot of the time the faint line will show at 7 if u are pregnant. Even when I was 3 month pregnant I took name brand and dollor one to see which would show sooner and which would be darker and give a definitive positive dollars ones all the why showed up as soon as the pee hit were the line should be and definitely dark were clear blue and first response I could barely see the lines and took for ever to show the lines. If u are trying definitely go Amazon bulk but if u want it now dollor tree both, dollor store, and Walmart $1 test all they why. Do do do not wait ur money on the other test u get better result with the dollor ones and even most doctor office use the dollor or Amazon brand can’t argue with that. Good luck lady.
    Yours truely,
    Mommy and mommy to be

    P.s save ur money for ur baby’s

  • I’m now 12 days late and using New Choice Test. It keeps showing a negative. Should I get another test or just keep on waiting? I run a 21 day cycle.

  • I use PREGMATE brand it’s quoted to detect 25ml or less!!! Last pregnancy I got my positive at 6dpo-7dpo I’m hoping to get my BFP SOON!

  • I know your channel will grow because you put so much into the information you provide! Thank you for all of your tips. I’m 29 and TTC my first.

  • This video made me feel better. I’m 8DPO (I think) and I still got a hard negative:( feeling pretty discouraged. It’s hard seeing so many of these videos and people getting positives by like 7DPO… it makes me feel like I’m not pregnant.

  • Nice informative video but u know what they say…. actions speak louder than words, it would have been nice to actually have the tests used and compare the results in your video… Just to back up your research.

  • I tested two days in row because I suspected pregnancy. I used a First Response test and both times got a faint, but definitely pink line on the test side. My mother says it was just an evap line, but the instructions say even a light line means I am pregnant. How should I go about this..?

    Edit: I should also mention that I have seem the evap lines on those tests before, and they are colorless to very light blue…so that’s partially why I am so shaky.

    I don’t wanna tell my husband that I am pregnant and be wrong, because he is very excited about having a baby.

  • Noice, I eat like a pig and going to the shop every day knowing exactly what I want and leaving with only that. I am super thirsty. I am constantly drinking. I am 7 DPO. Fatigue is hitting me. However, I get faint symptoms of pms like super light cramps and hot flashes. Send me baby dust ����

  • Three days before I tested I only had sore breasts nothing else except something inside me saying Cortney take a pregnancy test you need to test! So day before my period started I tested and I saw two little pink lines ❤️ I’m now 9 weeks

  • My wife and I watched your video on how to ttc and we tried everything you and Dottie did. This is our 5th cycle but first trying it the way you did it. I’m 10dpo and fingers and toes are crossed!

  • Thanks for your videos! My wife and I did exactly what your videos said and were starting to notice some symptoms but just dont know

  • last month I get my message on 29th and it ends on 3rd of July so it’s supposed to come again in which date can you please help me

  • Thank you for this i enjoyed it i have been trying for years today im 6dpo my breasts are sore and i super sad and moody im praying its my time to have my bundle of joy but im also afraid of getting let down again �� it is a rough journey but im trying to stay positive. Love your bubbly personality ��

  • I’m in the TWW and today I have had such bad clumsiness and heart burn!! I thought it was so odd but seeing this gave me hope it could be a symptom!!

  • Firstly, Congratulations!!
    I’m currently 13 DPO with my 3rd pregnancy and this video helped me so much so thank you! I’ve had 2 chemical pregnancies and my husband and I have been trying for a year since(I have endometriosis and PCOS). I’ve also had almost all of these symptoms at the exact same time and I was in denial so I didn’t put 2 and 2 together. Just like you said, when asked what I want, I always just told my husband to pick whatever he wants. I was a few days past ovulation and I knew exactly what I wanted! I also had smell sensitivity. After getting my first BFP which was at 8DPO, my symptoms became very clear! Food aversions, heartburn, headaches, cramping, sore and hard nipples �� and so much acne! Hoping this baby sticks. ����

  • I’m in my 4th DPO now, but dont feel any of those��, but i have a back pain.. Do i have to hold on to it? That it is a pregnancy symptoms?

  • Currently 7dpo, just hadda some mild cramping….have had so much negative tests that I’m not sure I even want to test untill I’ve missed a period!

  • Thanks for this!
    If some women are unsure the difference between PMS v pregnancy, here are my early symptoms from 6 or 7 dpo:

    Cramps, more like a tugging sensation than PMS type.

    Sore nipples and boobs. Darker spots around areola big sign

    Clear, thick CM.

    Slight spotting around 4 or 5 dpo (not everyone will get that).

    Fatigue, like always wanting to sleep.

    Increased hunger, some weird cravings.

    Metallic taste and thirst

    I hope it helps ������

  • I can’t believe it. Today I am 9DPO and been having every symptom you have literally just explained. I thought I was crazy for having a slight sniffle �� for one day on 8DPO honestly hope I am pregnant been trying to conceive for 10 months now
    5 more days or 3 if I can’t wait

  • I’m not sure. 10dpo and my breast are strange, can’t have anything touch them other than fiances hands. Thristy yes but weather ist hot right know. Peeing more yes, but Im drink more now. Need to wait some days more….

  • I had sex about 3 days before ovulation and I have been feeling tired a lot, cravings, and my right side has been hurting me it’s like twinges nothing to serious but I have never experienced that before. This Thursday the 25th I am suppose to start my period so I am not sure if I wanna test or just wait it out

  • How long are your periods for reference because you’re ovulating later in your cycle so just trying to see the length to know. Great video!

  • Hello beauty! I know that you have stated you weren’t going to do as many videos and this is an older post, however, I had a quick question. Do you experience and implantation bleeding or cramping before your BFP? Btw little Phoebe is beautiful!!

  • Just curious after doing the baby dance on your ovulation day is it okay to keep doing it? Or should you stop and wait and take the test after 2 weeks, meeting my boyfriend and we could only be together for a month before he goes back to work on a ship.

  • Hey:) How sensitive are those strips? I am worried because currently I should be 4w5d pregnant (I don’t know when my ovulation was exactly) but I am still only getting darker line on sensitive tests like FirstResponse which are 6.3mlU. I only got a faint line today on 20mlU which worries me so much. I miscarried in January and so I am loosing my mind now ����‍♀️��

  • Im 12 days late period because I take my first Morning pill from the broken condom w/ my bf. I take it after 10hrs. I try the pregnancy text afterwards and its shown the Faint line on it. Please help me to recognize if I’m preggy or nah?

  • I m 25 yr old female with pcod. I had taken duphaston 2 months ago and got my periods last month (March) twice ( 11th and 29th). This month i have been trying to get pregnant. I have been experiencing few symptoms like back pain, nausea, food aversions, craving for certain food, hardness in lower abdomen, bloating and tightness in the abdomen, feeling feverish but no fever. I am suspecting that I am pregnant but I took a test today ( 4th day of missed period) and it’s negative. What do I do? I have been having mild abdominal cramps too… Should I wait for my periods? Or should I take another preg test a few days later?

  • Did u use any ovulation tracking app? To guide u Want to try for a bby girl but 3/4 days before ovulation so before the 14th day? Or does ovulation happen slightly at 12th day?from lmp

  • I’m struggling with when to start testing. I had 2 peaks on my OPKs. It seemed to go negative for me for a day or so and three days after the peak I got another peak. So I’m not sure if I’m 9 dpo or 6dpo… Has anyone ever had a peak opk but ovulated later than you expected? Although the 3 days is within the time of the first positive they say… TWW is excruciating! Lol and this is my first.

  • I have PCOS struggling for 10 years to conceive this month i had my bfp lol…I didn’t heartburn,tender, thirsty like i was in a dessert” tender nipples and breast, cold,acne on neck, forehead and chest there’s a lot of changes in my body but am happy anyways #i wanna complain about my stretch marks

  • I’m so confused, help? I got my period on March 15. I had sex during it on day 5 of my period ( March 19) My period usually last 7 days. And it had lasted 6 days. Then I took a plan b on March 23. Within 5 days that you could take it. Then later on March 28 I had spotting. Then that same day I was spotting bright red blood. This went on for a total of 6 days but the last day it was light pink. I don’t know when to expect my period now.do you think that could be implantation bleeding? I’m not trying to get pregnant ��

  • I’m TELLING you. Your video is the ONLY video that has gone through EACH DAY. ALSO the first to say you had symptoms as early as 3dpo.

  • Just wanted to come back to this video and thank you from the bottom of my heart. I watched your TTC videos over and over until I felt I had everything down pat. I tracked for two months before trying this month. Today I am 9dpo and got my first positive. Baby coming December 2020. Thank you so much!!!

  • Ladies any symptoms before 4wks pregnant comes from progesterone!! It does not mean you’re pregnant. �� you can have implantation symptoms which are cramps or even spotting. This lady is making many women have hopes and symptom spot. You don’t implant until 6-12dpo!!!

  • Honestly I’m concerned right now.
    A week after my period, I started tracking my Ovulation? They all have 2 lines, the Test line is Light. So I’m thinking okay I’m not Ovulating yet.
    Then I’m thinking, OMG what if I missed it. It’s been 14 days passed my period. I have no idea if it’s a guessing game to tell if the test line matches control line. I’m kinda stressing

  • why would you not test a few days later when you have a dark line? im looking for info on when the darkest line occurs for pregnancy test plz

  • I’m 6dpo at the moment and have just been going about my week but thinking “gosh I’m tired”
    “Wow I’m so moody today”
    “Shit, I’ve never been so thirsty wtf”

    After watching this video I’m like….. Wow….. I might be pregnant ����

  • My period ended cd5 and I ovulated cd8 I’m 5dpo now and I’m worried I’m not pregnant this month ovulation happened fast but I can’t test yet
    We baby dance CD 5/8/9/10 (using soft didc)

  • So I had unprotected sex last february 9 and I took the morning after pill within 12 hours. Also he pulled out and didn’t came inside me. My period came February 15 when it’s supposed to be on February 17. The first 2 days were light bleeding and became heavy the following days like my normal period. The bleeding happened Feb 15-21. What I am confused now if it’s a period that just came early or if it was because of the pill cos I heard some women bleeds a week after taking the pill.

    And stupidly, I had sex again today Feb 24, but now it is protected. He used condom and didn’t came either. I got so scared cos my app says I am in my fertility window now and there’s a medium chance of getting pregnant and my ovulation day is on Feb 26 so I took the morning after pill again.
    Is there a possibility that I will get pregnant? I am thinking so much about this I am so scared.

    Take note that I am not using any birth control either because this was just the first time that I had sex. Please help. Badly need your advice:(

  • Omg omg omg I have the same flue like symptoms!!! I’m about 3 DPO I think..���� now I’m getting excited lol
    Congratulations on your pregnancy beautiful lady ��

  • Watched your video and had all the same symptoms but was convinced it was definitely a negative and I was just being hopeful… just got my positive 2 days ago! Thank you for being very in depth!

  • How to calculate dpo pls tell I’m also trying to get pregnant pls pls reply. last menstrual cycle is Jan 25 my ovulation period from jan 5 to 10

  • Thank you for your clear video, So easy to see with the writing next to your face to understand. Your progression line page also really clear and neat.

  • This video gives me lots of hope! I’m currently 9dpo with a bfn this morning. Having lots of symptoms that I never ever get with pms and feeling so optimistic that this is my month! Gonna rest again tomorrow and hope I get those two little lines ����

  • I spotted January 13 which that never happens I always get my period heavy..when should I test..I been testing but it’s negative and now it’s February 13 but no period..I also always get it on the 28 but on January I got it on the 13 just spotting

  • I had dark AF lines on first response, as in the test line was darker than the control before I got a positive on the digital. They require much higher HCG.

  • Please explain me about Dpo.. When it will be counted.?? My LMP is 21.1 2020… What is my dpo…?? I always regular period with 28 days…

  • Can someone help me understand this.. I think I tested to early but I took a pregnancy test at 7dpo (1:20am) came out negative I believe one line was darker than the other, I took the test apart only one line showed ��

  • That girl was stupid as hell who told you there is a plan B pill in it. So she (who told the thing about the pill) has been eating the thing that keeps the test dry ����‍♀️

  • I have a septate uterus, I have actually found out I was pregnant by 5 different home pregnancy tests taken today, but I was wondering if you’d be able to do a segment on Septate uterus, and the risks and potential successful pregnancies, or things that go along with septate uterus’. i was ttc with PCOS and the septate uterus, I am 100% sure that everytime I felt I was pregnant did end in miscarriage, and this is the first time I had gotten a positive test on a home pregnancy test.

  • Your hormones have to be strong in order for you to get a positive on a Digital, but you could of still been pregnant. It happened to me then like 4 days later I got a positive with a digital so I would of kept testing with a standard lines pregnancy test either clear blue early detection or First Response

  • did you end up actually being pregnant even though it said not pregnant? i’m going on 2-3 weeks late for my period and i just bought these. i took a test a little over a week ago the other clear blue rapid detection kind and it was negative but i still haven’t started.. so i’m trying the digital tomorrow morning first pee of the day!

  • I came cuz I’m ttc and I am 4dpo and struggling to wait. I had a disappointing result last month. This month I got the LH strips and tested every day after the end of my period. I need anything to distract me from testing waaay to early. I know I’m not gonna get a result. ��

  • I just did one and it came up as an error because when u do the test your supposed to lay it down, hopefully this works cause it didn’t work for me ���� trying one more time
