  • its after implantation that the hcg levels go up from my understandings

  • a test is not going to be accurate unless youre atleast a few weeks pregnant. if you just had sex, wait to test. the 5 day sooner tests still arent 100% accurate that early. your best bet is until your period is late atleast a few days. the hcg levels will be way too low to test right away

  • ok if you know exactly what day you ovulated and exactly what day you implanted ( if you chart you will have a better idea) you can sometimes tell 4 days after implantation sometimes even earlier I have heard of some women getting + test at 7dpo... also use a first response early result to verify it may want to check out a site called it has so much info and so much support from other women ttc!!
