In my opinion, it is too early to test and expect a positive result. I tested on day 5(fully knowing it would be negative) as I wanted to break up the 2WW. It did help as I was able to start the clock again a bit. testing after that got a bit more stressful. I tested again at day 7 and got a bfn, then again at day 8 and got a bfn. I got an EXTREMELY faint line on day 9.

 

Of course, I started panicking when I tested on day 7 and got a bfn, so I went into research mode. On a day 5 transfer, it can take up to 5 days for an embryo to implant(after that they can't really survive). Only once you implant will you start to produce Hcg and it can take up to 5-7 days for the level of hcg to reach the detectable levels for the most sensitive HPT. This is the reason for the 2WW. Even though people wait the allotted time, they can still get an inconclusive result from their beta(a result of 6-25 is considered inconclusive). Some people who get inconclusive result do go on to have a healthy pregnancy but it can be an indication of a chemical pregnancy. 

 

In the end, I am glad I tested early(purely because I felt like I was doing/controlling something) but you have to figure out how stressful it will be for you if you get a negative result. There is a chance that you will get a positive result(I have read about it happening many times during my time on this site, unfortunately, I was not that lucky).

I am also 7dp5dt, just wanted to say good luck! When is your beta scheduled? Mine isn't until this Friday. I actually tested last night with a bfn but I am completely ignoring it - I was so so stupid to do it. Especially without FMU. Wait as long as you can!! I will test one more time, the day of my beta. Only because I want to be prepared for what the nurse will say & I will be at work when she calls. I hate that phone call!

I have tested on day 7 twice - with our fresh and our frozen cycle. With the fresh cycle, I got a negative (and then a positive on day 9 - which became our daughter). This time, with our frozen cycle, I got a faint positive on day 7 that became a negative by day 10 (early miscarriage).

 

IMO, it's early and the result may or may not be accurate. We will do one more frozen cycle and I am sure I will test again - but for me, now, no result is accurate until the blood test confirms it.

Good luck to you as well! My beta is on the 25th but thats a Sunday so I have to wait until the 26th. I may get it changed to Friday and then Ill probably test on Thursday. The fear of it being negative is whats preventing me from testing! We used our last two embryos this time! I am definitely testing before beta because I would rather find out myself than over a phone call. I agree, its the worst call ever!

Thanks for all of the useful info! I didnt know that it took five days after implantation for hcg to be detectable. I hope you get your positive too!!!

Too early just wait until the day before beta. Youd hate to keep getting inaccurate results as too early

I think it all depends on how you are going to take it.  I started testing positive on the ultrasensitive tests at 5 days post 6 day transfer - and had a healthy pregnancy and delivery.  But I think it matters how you are going to take the news if its negative.  I am a compulsive tester, and would fully go into testing expecting a negative so that if it was negative, I would be ok and if it was positive it would be a bonus.  Wishing you the best.

I ended up testing today with my second pee of the day and I didnt see a line( I should have waited until Friday like my plan was but thats out the window now). I went back to the bathroom a few hours later and saw a faint line. I did another test and saw a faint line. If I am 8dp6dt should I be getting a darker line or am I on track? Thanks for all your answers so far

Hey Dory! Thats awesome that you saw a second line. Really, the darkness of the line isnt really significant at this point. Especially since you arent using FMU. If youve had lots to drink, if you havent held your urine very long, etc, it can all affect the concentration of HCG in the test. The fact that youre seeing a second line is all that matters! The blood test is really the only quantitative way of knowing how pregnant you are. All the best to you!

Having worked in a lab for many years I just want to add that you should be reading the test during the allotted time frame only. Coming back later and seeing a line is not the same as seeing the line during the testing time frame. This is because a faint line can appear as urine dries/evaporates from the test stick environment. We could only call positives within the test frame window when I was working.

Thanks, although when I saw the old test it made me test again and that is when I saw the faint line right away. Time will tell.

My faint line started on day 5.  And it slowly got darker for the next few days, but my lines never really got dark.  They all stayed more faintish.  Seeing that line is all you need!  So congratulations, I think you are pregnant! :)
