hi everyone, just wondering if anyone has took an early detection test and still got a negative? I feel like i have a few signs ... my boobs r bigger and a bit sore not overly sore though, my hippies r darker, I have really bad backache, sore head, bleeding gums , went off some food making me feel sick and gag, I am getting white discharge, cramping... did I test too early ??

If you actually read the instructions they don't claim to work 6 days before your period is due, it's actually 5 days before, they catch you out by saying it's 6 days before a missed period but the day your period is due is not actually a missed period, a missed period would be the day after! I hope that makes sense 😂 I had made that mistake before! You're not out until af has arrived! Stay positive xx

Implantation can happen up to 12dpo (and the would take 4 days to register on a test) so you are never out until the witch arrives.
Even with the most sensitive tests on the market, many dont get a clear positive until their period is due or late
They are just a money making item really and hard as it is it is best to wait until your period is late before testing like women years ago had to.
Early testing also runs the risk of picking up chemical pregnancies which before early tests would just pass as a period as you would never know that conception had occurred.
Good luck, stay positive you aren't out until you are out

Yes that make sense thank you! I am just going out of mind lol I never had this with my 16 month old daughter didn't even try to conceive with her and didn't have sex lots with my husband at that time for a great chance think it was just luck wish the same would happen this time! X

Hiya, I'm in a similar situation Iv had 2 negatives with first Response tests, af is due in 3 days.. Iv been ttc 8 months and am so certain I'm pregnant this month Iv had lower back pain since 5dpo and strong dizzy spells for the last 3 days, I had terrible dizzyness with my first pregnancy this feeling is all to familiar, I'm going to test again day after af is due!

I just tested again today as I am 6 days before missed period and a faint verti line showed in result window it's supposed to be horizontal not sure what it means ??

Hey luciana it means the test is faulty if it's the wrong way:/
Use a First Response I've always had good results on those from 10dpo ( 4 days b4 my period)
good luck 🍀

Ok thankyou x

Have you got a picture Luciana? Not many tests use horizontal lines and not really sure what test you are referring to unless it is the clear blue that requires a plus sign to make it positive

I too tested today (6 days before AF) and for BFN 😩 we've been trying for 3 months and I convinced myself I was pregnant. Bloating, dizziness, meat aversion and sore boob's. Since yesterday I have not felt pregnant at all, I think it's all been in my head because I want it so much.

You are not out until you are out.
A lot of early pregnancy symptoms are exactly the same as pre-menstrual ones as they are caused by a rise in progesterone which happens regardless of pregnancy
Every cycle women drive themselves crazy symptom spotting and every month you read posts on here from women who were convinced their period was coming and they felt no different but got their positive test
Hard as it is, ideally we should all just wait until we miss a period before testing like women years ago would have had to as there was no other option

Yes Becks you are definitely right. I think because we have access to all these chat boards it can be a blessing but also a pain in the butt! It's hard not to obsess and over analyse every little twinge hoping it's a symptom but it good to be able to chat to like minded people and realise we are all in this together. I'm terrible at being patient but this is something I'll have to work on.....no choice when it comes to mother nature!!!

I googled like mad the first few months, like you say every time something felt different it was a symptom (of course it never was) - now I just sit and wait for the witch to arrive as she sadly has every month so far haha

So yesterday I was feeling sorry for myself after the negative test in the morning. But last night I was feeling a lot better and my husband and I got intimate.
This morning I have woke up to a bleed!?! I'm cramping and feel tired. It's not particularly heavy but definitely red in colour, I was hoping it might be implantation bleeding but after reading up on it I don't think so.
My period is not due until Sunday, can anyone enlighten me or am I just getting my hopes up!?!🤔🤔
27/09/2017 at 15:37
it's definitely AF now, no denying it. Need to move on and try again next month!😩

Hi all! First time on this type of forums and still picking up the acronyms and lingo! husband and I have been ttc and I took a clear blue early detection test on expected period -4, -3, -1 Days. the bottom one is the -1 (yesterday) and we thought the line has been getting darker so thought perhaps I’m really pregnant this time!
So today I thought I’d use another early detection test (boots one) but got a negative (maybe a very very very very faint line..?). It’s supposed to be my expected period day today so am I still taking the test too early? A little bit anticlimactic as husband and I both expected to see two solid lines on the boots test today 😅
