When Can I Trust A Negative Hpt Test
Can I trust a negative hpt test 33 days after the unprotected encounter? Had a period on time 14 days after the encounter.
Can you trust a negative hpt test 21 days after unprotected sex? Had a normal period but breasts are hurting.
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
After getting an answer here I took a test like directed and it was negative. I am about 5 days late. R hpt accurate? It was first response test.
Got a pos hpt can it change to negative over a course of 4 days? Or does it remain positive? Just wanna know bc wanna keep the test to show hubby!
Do another one: When your husband comes back, it will still be positive and you can show it to him. The "old" one will usually turn darker, and it may get pretty rank in 4 days. Good wishes. ...Read more

How accurate are hpt? Can I rely on the result? Took test 8 weeks after sex. All 4 came back negative.
HPT/EPT: Well some women do produce an antibody that makes their HPT turn negative even if pregnant. Those patients need a serum pregnancy test. Most urine tests are accurate and become positive at levels of 15-25miu/ml, whereas the serum test is positive at 5miu/ml. So, just a few days difference between blood and urine. ...Read more
If I believe I conceived on June 20th, would 2 negative HPT tests on June 30th and July 2nd prove otherwise?
Hmmmm: It would make it unlikely but a blood HCG may be a better test for a definitive answer. ...Read more
Is it normal or shoud I worry? I took hpts and all negative even after being 12days late but had blood test and it was positive.
Can be normal: There is a condition in which blood pregnancy test is positive and when measured it shows really low values. Also negative pregnancy test is negative. Is called heterophylic ab syndrome. If pregnancy test still negative more likely this is your problem. ...Read more
Gf did a hpt and at time to read results there was a v faint line and 1 min later it disappeared. Test worked but is that neg or pos?
Positive: Many of these tests are super sensitive. So, I would err on the side of caution and say that any indication--regardless of the transiency--should be taken as a positive until proven otherwise. ...Read more
For the past 2 weeks I've had positive HPTs, but negative blood test, I'm still having positive HPTs from different brands too. Any thoughts?
HPT: Did the test sit out to long and develop evaporation lines? You must read the test at the exact time directed as it can concentrate if left to sit. If doctor did blood test - trust result. ...Read more
Accurate by 3 weeks: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, STD's, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner than 2-3 weeks after sex, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more
No test is 100%: Accurate. Home pregnancy tests are generally accurate if performed correctly and about two weeks after a missed period. Blood tests may be positive sooner. All lab tests have false negatives and false positives and the test results need to be interpreted in the clinical context. ...Read more

Missed per. July -4 hpts all negative. Urine test @dr 1 mth aftr missed per. Neg. Bled norm per on time for aug. 2 more neg hpts. All wrong?
See details: With that many negative pregnancy tests, I would say you are not pregnant. You most likely had a dysfunctional cycle. This is related to hormonal imbalance and no ovulation. In addition, at 47 you might be approaching menopause therefore there may be a tendency for you to miss cycles. Your GYN can make appropriate recommendations based on any future irregularities. ...Read more
Had done IUI on 4th july it's now day 12 and I done a hpt it came out negative. Suppose to do bloodtest on the 19th july was it to early to test?
Patience...: Patience is a virtue that all parents should seek. From the 4th to the 19th is a very short time (to relax and not think about babies). A urine pregnancy test done correctly should give a reliable result after 2-3 weeks (making it less likely to be a false negative if it is negative). Hopefully, the blood test will be a positive, but there should be no need to give it another thought until then. ...Read more
