how soon after implantation until I can use a hpt?

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.
Thanks

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.

Have you heard which HPT is the best for early detection?

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'm not sure which one is best. I'll do a little research...

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!
