  • Their tests are super sensitive. They take blood from you and actually see how much hCG is in it. Yes, they can detect pregnancy that early.

  • ok so i just got the full story. she went and he didnt even give her any test. he just said theyre all the same and should work within 72 hours of getting pregnant. then he gave her a due date that is a week earlier than it would be if going by her period.

  • well i didnt get a pos till i was a week late, so about 21 days past conception. sounds to me like the doctor is a quack
