I used the First response ept 6 days before my period is due and it said negative :-( Should I not be completely discouraged yet?

We have been trying for number 2 and the test said can test positive up to 6 days before your missed period... I am due for my period on the 20th and took the test this morning (6 days before that) and it was completely negative.... no slight line #2 or anything. I feel so discouraged.... I was going to test again Wednesday morning and if that is negative just wait and see if I get my period or not.... if not test again. Guess I am just seeking encouragement and anyone who can relate....

  • That only works if you have enough HCG in your system. It's extremely rare to see anyone with detectable levels that early. Wait until you are at least 11 days post ovulation before you test again. Good Luck!

  • Even if you get a light, abnormal period test again. It's all about those levels and if you stress you can mess up the reading too so buy a nice thick book for now till the 20th. Good luck!

  • You won't get a positive test for at least two days past implantation. It is early don't get discouraged yet. It is not over till AF shows. Good Luck

  • yeah i would wait until a missed period before taking the test because your hcg levels should be up enough to give you an accurate result that way you won't have to torture yourself. It can be discouraging if you think you will never get pregnant. So don't think that and you will continue in a positive attitude. be blessed
