Hello!We wanted to let you all know about our new #WaitToWee campaign we’ve just launched. And it’s all thanks to you ladies who participated in our test sticks thread a few months ago.The aim of our campaign is raise awareness about using early pregnancy test sticks, and calling for clearer packaging and instructions. And we decided to start this campaign from reading all of your posts on the forum, and how some of you have had false negatives and false positives plus the heartbreak it can cause.
So after reading all of this, do you think you could bear to #WaitToWee? Have you ever wished you’d waited to test? Or does it not matter to you how early you test?
We’d love to hear your thoughts.

Hi everyone, unfortunately due to technical constraints, we are not able to make the above image larger, so if you can't enlarge it on your device, here are the facts from the campaign.
The Facts of #WaitToWeeNot all home pregnancy tests are 99% accurate if you use them early as advertised. MadeForMums talked to 1166 UK women who’d used 1541 early pregnancy tests in the past 2 years. They told us….95% said 99% accuracy was more important than taking a test earlyBUT 53% took the early pregnancy test when it wasn’t 99% accurate. That’s because early pregnancy tests aren’t 99% accurate if you use them as early as marketedEARLY = BEFORE PERIOD DUE NOT 99% ACCURATE NOT EARLY = AFTER PERIOD DUE 99% ACCURATEOur survey found:5.5% were false negative - a test says you’re not pregnant but later tests show you are.1% were false positive - a test says you are pregnant but later tests show you’re not.TAKING IT EARLY = 1 in 15 chance of wrong resultNOT ALL TESTS MEASURE FROM THE SAME DAY!CLEAR BLUE counts from the day your period is dueFIRST RESPONSE counts from the day after your period is due
In a nutshellIf you use a pregnancy test early as advertised

Hi tracy44, we're afraid we're not allowed to recommend which tests to try, as we're not allowed to be seen endorsing brands or products over here at MadeForMums, but might we suggest you start a new thread up, asking the ladies on the forum which brands they'd recommend? Good luck testing!

I had Intercourse with my partner on my ovulation and I would to know could I be pregnant I have seen my period it pose to come on today but it didn't I took a pregnant test it was negative

Yes, if you had sex on the day you ovulated, it is possible that you are pregnant. It sounds as though you may not be, if you've had a negative pregnancy test but it's worth testing again tomorrow and/or the next day, if your period still hasn't come.
