My apologies if this is a bit long winded but I really need some advice and my GP is bloody useless.
I had my first not drug induced period on 22nd March this year. Going on the premiss that I had a 28 day cycle I was expecting AF on 19th April. When she didnt show I got my hopes up a little. Then on 22nd I had what I believe to be an implantation bleed. I had thick clear mucus mixed with a little blood and after some research put this down to implantion and thought nothing more of it as I had already said id do a HPT on Friday morning if AF didnt show. So after a long week I took a HPT on Friday only to get a BFP!!! I was so excited I could have done back flips!! Just to to be sure I took two more HPTs only to get BFN on both..
Because of my history (PCOS) I took myself off to the GP full of nerves and hope.. I explained everything to my GP who actually made me feel mentally ill for taking 3 tests in one morning. He told me to take another test this morning which I did and it was a BFN..
I am to worried to go back to my GP for help now as I dont wanna be made to feel awful again!!! I have read about chemical pregnancy and think that may be the cause of my BFP.
Has anyone else experienced anything similar??
Hi, my first thought would be to ask if you were sure you did all the tests correctly? When you say you did one and it came up positive, was it a clear positive within the time limit. Were the following two tests done with same wee and same type of test?
If you used different types of test they may have had different sensitivities.
If the positive came up within the time limit and was a two lines rather than the + or - ones then I might think that it could be chemical pregnancy related. But +/ - blue ones have been known for false positives, so would beware of those.
The positive came up on a Tesco own Digital, It says either pregnant or not pregnant.
I did all the first test on friday with first morning pee and the second 2 after a pint of water but this mornings were done with first morning pee in a cup and I dipped the tests in for the amount of time it says on the instructions (2 first responce and one tesco own digi) and all were negative.
should I do another in a few days ?? I found the tesco own digitals easy to use and so should i stick to those?? Its so confusing!!! We want to be parents so badly!!
Some tests are more sensitive than others. You need to check what sensitivity you are using - 10miu are the most sensitive.
Test again in a few days time, and I would take the result as your answer. If you are pregnant the HCG levels will have risen.
I had a chemical pregnancy in February, after almost 3 years of trying, so I know how heartbreaking it is to see a positive one day and a negative the next.
I am going to test again mid week. How do I check the sensitivity?? I dont know what sensitivity the ones Ive used are??
Ive spent most of today crying and my DH has spent most of the day trying to make me smile but I heard him crying earlier..
We had a MC 3 yrs ago but didnt know we were PG and I had no symptoms!
Ive had symptoms for the past week and they have carried on today (not the crying obv)
Did you have any symptoms of pregnancy with your chemical pregnancy
No I had no symptoms at all, apart from a consistently high temperature (I chart).
You can check the sensitivity on the box or the pamphlet that comes with the test.
Unfortunately with regards to symptoms, there is no real way of telling either way.
I have heard of false positive tests on digital tests where the "not" fails to work. So if the only positive test was on a digital then it is possibly an error.
However if it was a true response it could be just a fluke early detection that will be picked up on other tests in the next couple of days.
To be honest with negatives on first early response tests, these are the ones I would trust the most, so I would repeat with one of these in two days time.
It is a stressful and upsetting time for you at the moment. Try to be kind to yourself, do anything to help distract yourself from thinking about it over the next couple of days. I truly hope that it is just a case of testing too early and that everything turns out well for you.
If you got a positive then negative it sounds like the pregnancy didn't "take" . Apparently 50% pregnancies end at this stage naturally- with early detection now this sort of thing is sadly becoming more common. Years ago people had to wait much longer to find out.
First response early tests a very accurate from my experience.
Thanks so much ladies (assuming all ladies this is mumsnet after all) I feel better this morning!! Still no sign of AF but having PCOS ill accept it as a fluke period and move on!! I still have 5 stone to loose before my GP will let me start any Fertility treatment so I guess I have that to keep me focused!!
I just liked the idea of being a mummy sooner than I hoped!!
Good luck Mrs Williams with losing 5st and TTC I hope all your dreams come true. x
Good luck Mrs Williams.
I know this has been pointed out but I tend to avoid the tesco digi's like the plague as they gave me a false positive last year. (We weren't trying but it was still devastating for me when every following test was negative. As. Relief for dh however as he is 'done'!!).
Best tests I have used are the dippy cheapy ones (and I've used a lot of tests). Packs of 3 in home bargains are 89p. HB also sell midstream ones two packs for 89p too - we are not ttc but I was suspicious when u started feeling different, I'm on Depo provera... Anyway he midstream gave me a false positive, I did both at the same time dipped in a cup for 10 secs. Within the time limit and everything... One bfp and one bfn. From the same wee
Hope you get your bfp very soon!!!
