BFP at 7 DPO?
7
Sun, 08-02-2009 - 11:22am

Hi all,

I'm about 7 DPO, and I took 3 different brands of HPT's today-- FRER, CVS, and EPT. All came out definitely BPN-- not even a hint of a line, not even an evaporation line. Do any of you think it would be possible to test BFP this early, or should I give up most of my hope? I bought packs of 3, so I could test again later as I get closer to the day of AF. She should be arriving in 7 days.

I actually just found this chart on the internet, on http://www.peeonastick.com/hptfaq.html#21. I think it's really helpful, and according to this chart, my body may not be producing enough hcg to be detected on the tests I tried. I read that EPT requires an hcg level of 40 to test positive. Maybe there is hope after all!

Days past conception/ovulation (DPO)/ hCG in mIU/mL in singleton pregnancy
7 days 0 - 5
14 days 3 - 426
21 days 18 - 7,340
28 days 1,080 - 56,500
35-42 days 7,650 - 229,000
43-64 days 25,700 - 288,000
57-78 days 13,300 - 253,000
17-24 weeks 4,060 - 65,400
25+ weeks 3,640 - 117,000

AND, I also found a site that lists the sensitivities of all the HPT's many of us use. Here's the link : http://www.fertilityplus.org/faq/hpt.html I guess if these tests are measuring levels of roughly 25 hcg, and I'm only 7 DPO and should not have that much hcg in my urine yet, I don't have to give up hope yet.

I hope these links are useful for others as well!

I think that you are testing too early.

I agree. Let's be positive and assume we tested too early :)
