Too early to get a true positive (or negative)?

I was in Emerg last weekend as I twisted my foot and had to get an x-ray done to see if it was broken. Beforehand, the nurse had me give a urine sample and they tested it to see if I was pregnant first,before going ahead with the x ray. I am not getting my hopes up at all this month as it has been a whirlwind of expectations and letdowns. But, I was just 2 dpo last Sunday and the test was a negative. Now, I am 8 dpo.
My question is, wouldn't 2 dpo be way too early to get a 'true' pos or neg pregnancy reading anyway? The egg wouldn't even implant until around 6-8 dpo.
What I am grateful for is that the x ray tech did put a shield over my abdomen anyway (just in case) when doing the x rays.

  • When I have tested early , I still only got a very faint positive but not until 11 dpo so I was just wondering if there is such a thing as TOO soon to test.

  • Ya, it's too early. Wait another week at least and test again.

  • I am not expecting to be pregnant (as I am doubting it this month....no symptoms at all, just really moody!!!!) and I am now just 5 days from AF's arrival so I guess time will tell. I was just wondering if it was even possible to get a positive (or true negative) reading from a urine test at just 2 dpo? Thanks for the responses. I will just have to wait it out and see.
