you know the little thin stick type wons that measure from 10 whatever it is?

period due about tues so thought i would try one today and it was negative, i thought with them being so sensitive it would have showed up if i was pregnant, have not had a lot of sex this month and dont have any symptoms but i suppose there is always a chance.

do you think it would have shown up or are they not as good as they make out?

They are fine - they are actually the same as the thing which is inside the more expensive tests. You pay extra for the plastic wand and to avoid the risk of getting wee on your finger.

I've not used these (yet!), but fundamentally until you bleed (and then sometimes even then) you could still be pregnant. There are LOTS of posts about people who tested negative, negative, negative and were pregnant.

However if you've not has "much sex" you are of course lowering your chances wink... unless your name is Mary... ?
