I used a sensitive test (super drug) and it says you can use from 4 days before your period is due.

This morning I tested, 4 days early and it's negative. Is that it?

Has anyone used these tests and waited a few more days and had a different result?

yes, it could change. Depending on when you ovulated there might not be enough hcg for even a very sensitive test to detect. Try again when your period is actually due, or better still late.

I was getting negatives until I was a week late. Currently looking at my 10 day old son from that frantic time of testing!

Ok, thank you!

I have ordered some eBay tests, so they won't arrive for another couple of days....that will force me to wait and give me a little bit more hope!

Yep - I got a negative on a Superdrug HPT at 4+1!! I tested again at 4+4 and got an instant positive on the same test. I guess the 4 days early doesn't work for everyone. Good luck!

Thank you & hope you get a BFP soon!

Good luck with a BFP. Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know you're not alone on this one! I just did my early response (Superdrug) test and got a BFN. It says it works up to 6 days before due on. Am going to try and stop being so obsessed about it leave it until due on and keep my fingers crossed for the while intervening time.
Keep thinking positive thoughts and hopefully you'll get that BFP soon.

My AF is due around 7th so I might be testing with you ladies. I might try tohgc wait until 10th.
Hcg usually doubles every 48 hrs so they say it's best to test again in a couple of days if you can wait that long!!
Fingers crossed for bfps.
