Does this mean no go this month? I'm pretty sure i did O on the day i thought. has any one heard of a BFP after a BFN at this time with an early HPT?

No, I didn't test positive until I was 14dpo and not a day sooner. Keep your chin up- it may happen for you!!!

dont give up yet sweetie, it may still be early to tell, i tested yesterday at 8dpo....im not giving up hope yet, maybe you should wait till your first day of missed period, that is what im doing..its getting too expensive ((7 tests later))

Only like 50% of women have a positive 3 days before their AF. Many don't show a positive until the day of the missed AF or sometimes after. Don't give up hope. I also have decided to not test any more until after I miss AF. Not only is it heartbreaking,. but expensive, last month I think I went through maybe 10 hpt's. That's a little crazy! Good Luck and I hope all of you get BFP+++++++++++

I agree with the last post. Don't test at all until you miss your period. If you do, and its negative, you'll be wasting money because you'll have to test again anyway if you miss your period. ALSO and most important, you won't cause yourself unnecessary grief if you test Negative and you are really positive!

I have also read that those early response tests are actually no more accurate at reading early than a regular test. Every book I've read says most of the time a woman wont test positive until she's missed her period anyway.

That said, I know you've already tested, but don't give up just yet! You can test again when you miss AF. Good luck!

Hello--I'm a newbie--what does BFP and BFN mean?
