Hpt


#1

hi everyone! i was wondering if anybody knew if it matters what time of day you take an hpt? i just took my 1st hpt today around 4pm and got a bfn. i was going to take one tomorrow morning and my beta is on monday. but being that my beta is right around the corner i thought i would at least see a faint line even tho its late in the afternoon. it was a very clear negative. i’m scared that this is yet another failed cycle… has anyone taken an hpt in the afternoon and gotten a negative, but took one in the am and received a positive?

You can take an hpt anytime of the day but it is recommended that you take it with your first morning output because you will have a higher concentration of hcg present. I had a very very faint line the night before my beta but I did another one the morning of and it was quite a bit darker. You may just not have quite enough hcg to show a line yet. Don’t give up hope! I have heard of many ladies that never received a positive hpt and had a positive beta! Good luck on your beta monday!! Sending :bsv: to you!!

I had a positive hpt followed by a negative, and someone said my urine may be diluted, so I went to the bathroom, drank a glass of water and held it for about 4 or 5 hours and tried again, I didn’t always use fmu, I got better results with monitoring fluid intake and waiting a few hours… don’t give up yet, you could just have low level hcg right now. The day that I went for my beta was when the HPT was finally clear and dark, and it was a frer, and yes, it detects small amounts, but my hcg that day was 343, and that was the first really dark line I got!
