How soon after implantation cramping should I use an hpt? It's so dumb of me to get my hopes up--but I had cramping at day 6-7, a week before my period is due, so I am hoping it was implantation cramping. How early can they tell at the drs office (I didn't take meds this month so there wouldn't be a false positive from hcg)?
The waiting is driving me crazy.
You want to take a test when you're period is due or late. Any sooner and you have a higher chance of false negatives or a wrong reading. Even people who test when their period is due don't always show till later on.
Alot of people on this board take tests at day 10 or 11--I know a false negative is a possibility, but it can show up that early, right?
What about at a dr office? Can a blood test detect even a very low amt of hcg in the blood?
I took one on day 6, 7, 8, 9 after transfer (IVF) all were negative. I used First Response and EPT. I am all out of HPT, which is a good thing. I think I should wait until my blood test. Let me know if you find out which ones are the best. Thanks and good luck to you!
