  • Blood test 14 days after egg retrieval. I've never seen what a positive pee stick looks like...lol.

  • I have taken both, during my pregnancies. The most accurate is the blood test. You need to usually be at least a week to 2 weeks pregnant for an hpt to test positive.

  • Just go to the doc or health clinic. they will tell you for sure and if your not then they will tell you whats wrong. I took two HPT tests the day before i went to the doc.

  • I did hpt for both of my pregnancies. Both times when I was like a day or two late with my period so around 4 to 5 weeks pregnant.
