Probably not...I think I remember reading that one of the earliest tests could be taken 4-5 days before your period was due. Best bet is either wait or get a blood test.

I found out at 13 dpo. with a faint positive hpt. But doctor say to wait until your missed period or 8 days after your missed period. According to the ClearBlue pregnancy test accuracy results they are: 4 days before expected period= 51% accurate 3 days before expected period= 82% accurate 2 days before expected period= 90% accurate 1 day before expected period =95% accurate the day of expected period =99% accurate

Im 18days late had a negative hpt and having cramps could i be pregnant?

If you are already 18 days late, the hpt was probably accurate, and your cramps probably indicate that you are about to have your period.

After how many days of your missed period can you take a hpt test that is the most accurate?

I always advise that a HPT be performed 3 weeks after you had unprotected sex as its most accurate as this time. You can see your doctor for a pregnancy blood test which can be performed now.

14 days after intercourse or the day of your expected period.

If an HPT is negative but you are spotting on and off for a few days before your period is due and there are no other signs of pregnancy can you be pregnant?

Yes you could be pregnant. Wait a few more days and do another HPT or see your doctor for a blood test. More accurate.

i think its too early to take hpt , try after 1 week you get accurate one.

If your period is 7 days late you ovulated on time but HPT was negative can you be pregnant?


What are your chances of pregnancy if you have protected sex both with a condom and with birth control and you got your period heavier than normal and an hpt two days before your period was negative?


When should you retest for pregnancy if you had implantation spotting for 3 days and got a negative result on a HPT 5 days before missed period?

Retest one week after your missed period, some tests are sensitive enough to use the day your period is due but others are not. By one week after your period was due, your hCG will be at a level any HPT should be able to give an accurate and reliable answer. Using the HPT 5 days before your period is due is always going to be unreliable, unless you have very irregular cycles. Generally speaking, ovulation occurs 14 days before your period is due, you then have a 24 hour window to conceive. 10 to 12 days after conception the fertilized egg starts implanting into the uterine wall, at that time your hCG level starts rising and will be at the necessary 50mIU/ml to 80mIU/ml - between 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 weeks following conception, which just happens to coincide with the week your period is due.

How soon after implantation can you detect the pregnancy hormone in a pregnancy test?

with an hpt 5 days before your missed period.... or get a hcg blood test by your doctor

If you period last four days can you be pregnant?

A normal period usually means no pregnancy, if you are unsure take a HPT.

How you can sure that the test before 5 days of your period is right?

I think you mean can a hpt be positive 5 days before your period is due??? In that case yes it can come back positive as your hormones (hcg) can be strong enough to show but not always its beat to teeth the day you should get your period or that day after

Can you take a HPT the same day as your missed period and have an accurate response?

I would wait a week just to be sure.

How soon can you take an HPT?

The HPT will be accurate when its performed 3-4 weeks after intercourse.

Will getting a period affect HPT results?

If you have got your period, you don't need to take an HPT

Could you still be pregnant if you took an HPT after 2 days of your missed period and it was negative?


I took a clear blue digital pregnancy test and it said not pregnant but it had 2 lines one more faint does anyone know anything about those tests. Thanks?

what had happen you either had a false negative or a false positive--this happen when you have low hcg level in your urine--like you said you took two other hpt and came back positive-- i assume you are pregnant with low hcg level and the clear blue digital didn't pick up your hcg -if you still have concerns and haven't had a period yet--i suggest you go to your doctor and ask for a blood test and also explain what happen to you when you did the hpt--a blood test is more accurate than a hpt--when you buy hpt you have to read when the hpt expired and when its best to used it..i've never used hpt before a missed period even with the 5 days advance hpt--always used hpt after a missed a period because your hcg will be high and easy to be pick up by hpt--i hope i help you--good luck

If previous period was two weeks late for non pregnancy reasons and now you are 5 days late with pregnancy symptoms including nose bleed and swollen breasts and sore nipples when should you take a HPT?

To get the most accurate result it is best to wait 5 to 10 days after a missed period. You can test with a 5 days before your missed period test BUT remember if it comes out negative, it could be a false negative and will want to test again once your period is late.

11 days late negative hpt negative blood test 2weeks ago could you still be pregnant?

A blood test would have been negative 3 days before your missed period but an hpt would ususlly be positive by now. You have to use the first urine of the day when it is good and strong.

Could you be pregnant if you are 5 days late for your period and you feel like crap and have had unprotected sex?

Yes, you need to take a HPT. Yes, its possible you could be pregnant. You can do a pregnancy test now and it should be accurate.

Can you be pregnant if your 10 days late for your period neg HPT then get a period that only lasts for 1 in a half to 2 days spotting then med then spotting then little to nothing only when you whip?

10 day tests are usually not as accurate as the tests that are taken later. Why don´t you take another test?

Will a period or what seems to be a regular period affect your HPT results if they were taken while you weren't bleeding?

You don't need to take an HPT if you have your period

Could you be pregnant if your period is 4 days late and you have a brownish pinkish period and cramps and the hpt comes up negative everytime you take it?
