Can you take pregnancy test too early?

I have a feeling I wasted a test, but I am in such anticipation and not thinking clearly! I ovulated on the 24th. I just took an EPT certainty and it was negative. Is that too soon to get accurate results?

It says you can test as early as the day after your first missed period. But, I was wondering if it is likely to get a positive test only a few days after conception.

I know, to just wait a week or two, but that seems so far away. Anyone ever got positive results less than a week after conception?

that sounds way too early, usually it takes 7-10 days for the embryo to even implant, and then usually a few days after to have enough HCG in the system to detect on a home pregnancy test. The earliest I've seen people get a BFP is 8-9 DPO and even that is unusually early.

I agree with the above poster. It takes 7-10 days for the embryo to implant after conception so to get a positive test just days after conception I would think would be nearly impossible. I say wait it out and test in another week or so. Good luck!

Re: Can you take pregnancy test too early?

Thanks for the response, after googling "HCG levels during pregnancy" I figured that it was too early to detect, so there is still a possibility that I am pregnant! I can wait until Jan 6 to test again, since that is when I expect AF. I am going to try to focus on something else in the meantime

Yeah, way too early.

FWIW - I got a blood test done at 12dpo and it was negative. BFP came on 14dpo and quants at 15dpo were in the 50s and 244 on Monday, 17dpo.

I was being "monitored" by an RE, that's why I know all this.

Re: Can you take pregnancy test too early?

The earliest I've gotten a line at all is 10 days after conception. Good luck!

I took a pregnancy test too early in Oct (and was pregnant). I ovulated on the 23rd, negative on the 29th or 30th and positive on the 2nd.

Re: Can you take pregnancy test too early?

I got a false negative on day 10. I broke my own heart for nothing by testing too early. I spent the next 7 days moping around for nothing. I wish I'd waited so there wouldn't have been even a second of disappointment associated with what I'd waited so incredibly long for. Does that make sense?

(hugs) and good luck on your next test!
