Ovulating?: Besides pregnancy one of the more common reasons women skip periods or have irregular bleeding is that they are not ovulating. There are many reasons why this happens. If it is persistent, you might want to see an Ob/Gyn for some testing to find out why. Best wishes! ...Read more

How early in the morning could I take a hpt?

How early in the morning could I take a hpt?

Not how early: When you wake first urine sample. Urine has been in bladder most of the night. Bladder has ability to extract water raising concentration of solute including hcg. The test is sensitive to this protein. The higher the concentration the more likely for a positive in early pregnancy. ...Read more

Two positive HPT tests in the morning, but negative in afternoon...?

Two positive HPT tests in the morning, but negative in afternoon...?

HPT test results: Very early in pregnancy, the beta-HCG levels will be higher in the morning so will trigger the home urine testing kits to test positive sooner. Later in the day, a woman can drink enough water to dilute the hormone level down enough to get a negative test. This is only true in VERY early pregnancy. Once a woman gets to 3 weeks after conception, it doesn't matter time of day. ...Read more

Hi. I am on 8dp5dt. I took a HPT this morning and it's a BFN. Could it be to early to see positive results.

Hi. I am on 8dp5dt. I took a HPT this morning and it's a BFN. Could it be to early to see positive results.

Yes: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.

Had 2 hpt two days in a row and they both turned out positive but the first hpt line was darker than the second. Should I worry?

Had 2 hpt two days in a row and they both turned out positive but the first hpt line was darker than the second. Should I worry?

Not concerning: As normal pregnancies progress, HCG levels rise and the line gets darker - to a point. The darkness of the line also depends on the concentration of your urine (water consumption affects it). A dropping blood level would worry me though. Your best indicator of a healthy pregnancy at this point will be the fetal heart beat. We usually see that about 2 weeks after the missed period. Good luck! ...Read more

My cycle is on average 47 days. As of today I am 28 days late. Took hpt at two weeks late, and was negative. Should I take another hpt?

My cycle is on average 47 days. As of today I am 28 days late. Took hpt at two weeks late, and was negative. Should I take another hpt?

You may: If you did the test correctly and it was negative at 28 days after a missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. You may repeat the test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.

Took a hpt and it said a light negative but an even lighter positive kinda faded on it. .. Took two both the same results... What is this?

Took a hpt and it said a light negative but an even lighter positive kinda faded on it. .. Took two both the same results... What is this?

Could be equivocal: If you are late and did not have your menses yet, it is possible that you may have a very early pregnancy. I would save the money (home pregnancy tests are not really cheap) and wait until you are about 2 weeks late (assuming you have regular menses) before doing the test. Good luck! ...Read more
