6 days was my earliest, but it was twins. Not sure if that means anything. My singles took longer.

When you say your singles took longer do you mean you got negative before finally getting a positive? How long did it take you to get your positive?

With ds, I had a negative blood test 9 days before menstruation and a positive 2 days after that. I'm not sure what or why that was tho

I was 9dpo with an obvious positive this time, it's twins. Idk if it would have been positive earlier since that was the first time I tested.

If you took it 9 days before your period, it was probally way too early. Usually tests start to show positive only after you have missed your period. Before that the hcg levels are usually too low.

No

Because implantation doesn't occur 9 days before menstruation usually, so you wouldn't have a measurable leavel of HCG at that time....

That's 100% normal. Getting a positive 9 days before your period would be abnormal.

We used IVF so I knew ahead of time to start testing on a certain date, but I was too excited to wait. I think it was positive early due the HCG levels being higher with twins, but I really don't know. We confirmed with blood test 3 days later. My singles again were IVF, but I was scared to test too early since I lost my twins at birth. Got negatives at 9,10 then at 13 got a positive then confirmed with blood test next day. Just relax sweetie and test when you're supposed to.
