  • Yes there is really a too early. Your hcg levels go up every day and a low level can't be read by tests. That's why they say to wait until you actually MISS your period to test because by then it's far more accurate.

  • For sure! If you don't have enough of the hormone in your urine the test won't pick it up. My son I started testing at 8 days past ovulation, and I got negatives until day 15 (past ovulation). By then my period was a day late.. so it took a long time to get my levels up..

  • Yes, if you don't have enough of the hormone in your system yet because you aren't far enough along, it won't show up as a pregnancy. That doesn't mean you are or you aren't pregnant, it just means the test can't verify it. The only thing you can do is wait until next friday and try again. If it's still negative, and you feel you may still be pregnant, go to your doctor and get the blood test.
