Morning Stacey,

I tested negative 2 days before I was due and positive 2 days after. I did have period cramps for the day before and the day I was due, though, and have had them on and off since.

I'm sure someone will be along with a better experience.

When did you test? The hormone you are testing for is most concentrated first thing in a morning or when you have not had a drink/been for a wee for a couple of hours.

Hi, thankyou for responding, I took a test at 9 days late and neg, I did do it first thing in a morning too, it's just so annoying not knowing where I am with it sad

Hi stace,

Didn't want to read and run!

I know this might not be very helpful but I remember reading a post on here from someone who took 14 days after AF was dueto get her BFP.

The tests that I have at home (just cheapies) say if you get a negative result and still suspect you might be pregnant wait 48 hours and take another test first thin in the morning as the hormones are meant to double every day.

Good luck smile

Hi
I have but it was a 'chemical' pregnancy ... I was over 2 weeks' late before I had a positive test (after several negative ones) but then sadly I started bleeding just a few days later. It was like my period was late really. I think this happens when the egg fertilises but for whatever reason doesn't get much beyond that.

Like the other posters say though, just try in a few days' time as you may just be a bit early.

I took 9 tests and no.s 2 and 3 were neg. Apparently all tests have different levels of hormone sensitivity (im sure i found the list on here) and its been found Superdrug ones detected the lowest amount. Also morning wee is most potent.

Good luck! I will see if i can find that list for you xx

Hi, this happened to me. I wondered if I was pregnant due to unexplained severe heartburn and took a test which was negative. Although it was over 4 weeks since my last period I had a very unpredictable cycle, usually longer than 4 weeks. Anyhow a few days later I was still feeling "odd" and took a test again which was positive - my 5 year old is proof! I still think its amazing that I "knew" before the test did!

Its actually on another website, not sure if im allowed to post links to rivals so Google 'pregnancy test sensitivity list UK' and it should be the top answer. Pregnancy forum UK.
