8th day from IUI treatment, negative result, but all the symptoms for pregnancy, tender breasts, nauseas, etc is it possible to be to soon to know?

Testing too Soon: Does your question mean that you have already tried a pregnancy test? If so, then yes, this was done way too soon and was probably a waste of money.
