Have you ever been more than a week late before you got a positive HPT?

I am 8 days late, got a very faint positive on a dollar tree test, have taken several more tests, different brands, and got all negatives. I have symptoms and my cycle is like clock work. Please share your stories. How many negatives did you get before you got a positive? How far along were you when you finally got a positive?

  • It's very rare to get a false positive. If you're in doubt go to your doctor and ask for a blood test.

  • Was it positive right away or did you let it sit for a while? You have to read them within minutes or they are not accurate. There are no false positives when a positive comes up immediately.

  • I read it less than ten minutes later. I called my doctor for a lab test. I just need to go get it done.

  • 10 minutes may have been too long. It's probably a negative.
