This morning I took one of those pregnancy tests that claim they can give you a positive result 5 days before you get your period. My result came bach as "not pregnant." I am currently taking progesterone suppositories as advised by my fertility doctor. I know I should wait a few more days and test afain, but getting a bit impatient. Has anyone else taken an early test with a negative result, and then discovered that they were actually pregnant? It's a silly question. I just wish the result was different.
Here is some information I found regarding early testing and the percetage of accuracy when testing early. I'm not sure what type of test you use, but this is the basic for most early tests.
Because implantation usually happens 6-12 days after ovulation, it is always possible that early testing will be too soon.
Clearblue Easy publishes on its website the following stats: Clearblue Easy can be used as early at 4 days before you expect your period. That's 5 days sooner than waiting until you miss your period to test. The amount of pregnancy hormone increases rapidly in early pregnancy.
