I know that EPT can detect pregnancy 5 days early....but I feel so pregnant right now and I have 8 days to go til my expected period. If I'm pregnant now, why wouldn't it show up on a test?

  • Because it is based on the hormones in your body, and each day the closer to your period it gets stronger and more detectable.

  • Yea I found out I was pregnant so early that one test said I was and four others said i wasn't so before I decided to say i wasn't i got a blood test that confirmed I was. So if you think you are (and it's this early) go get a blood test, it'll be the most reliable.
