If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. Follow the directions on the back exactly as directed to help you interpret the results. ...Read more

A need for patience: Doing a pregnancy test at 6 days after ovulation means there is a need for more patience. Having an endless amount of patience is one of the most important things to achieve for any future parent.

There is usually no need to test sooner than that. ...Read more

A repeat pregnancy test can be done 1 week after that first test, and if negative, means not pregnant. ...Read more

Personal experience, if the pregnancy line appears it stays there, the negative test rarely can change into false positive if too much time passed, the positive test will never turn into negative. ...Read more
