10 thoughts on “Hcg Levels In Ept Digital

  1. How accurate is ept digital pregnancy test?
    Ok so on friday evening I took a pregnancy test (ept digital test) because im 4 or 5 days late and it came out positive and the next morning I took it again and it came back negative. I started bleeding so im thinking it was my period but I was bleeding kinda heavy with clots.. On sunday it was gone and im not bleeding anymore… Could that have been my period and that pregnancy test I took was a false positive? Should I be worried???

    • It could have been an early miscarriage, or chemical pregnancy. The fact that the first one came up positive means you did have some hcg in your body, but the levels dropped again, which makes sense if your “period” was heavy with clots. You can go to a doctor to confirm, but that’s my best guess.

  2. How early were you able to detect pregnancy on a HPT?
    I know they claim to tell you days before a missed period but in YOUR experience does it work and how accurate. I am going to use EPT brand or a similar well known brand. Did any one find out they were pregnant and it be really early in the pregnancy? How many weeks were you when you found out? Can you find out before symptoms????? I have a 4.5 year old but it seems like it was forever ago and this time TTC. Last time was a suprise.

    • I found this on an HPT website (listed below) I hope it helps you out.

      The Science Behind the Accuracy of Pregnancy Tests and Knowing Sooner

      At-home pregnancy tests that claim to be sensitive enough to detect pregnancy before the first day of your missed period must be able to identify more than one form of the pregnancy hormone hCG. These tests must be able to detect not only hCG but also a variant of the pregnancy hormone, hyperglycosylated hCG or hCG-H.

      The cell that originates when a fertilized egg is implanted in the uterine wall initially secretes the pregnancy hormone variant hCG-H. As such, this hormone is actually produced in the earliest stages of pregnancy before the primary pregnancy hormone, hCG, which is produced immediately following implantation by a different set of cells.

      The FIRST RESPONSE® Early Result Pregnancy Test uses advanced patented technology that enables it to deliver highly sensitive results. The test is able to detect total hCG, which is hCG and hCG-H combined, at lower levels than some other at-home pregnancy tests, which allows you to know sooner.

      The FIRST RESPONSE® Early Result Pregnancy Test detects the pregnancy hormone five days before your missed period — with our most accurate results.1

      In clinical research, FIRST RESPONSE® Early Result Pregnancy Test detected the hormone level in 69% of women four days before their expected period (which is five days sooner than the day of their missed period), in 83% of women three days before their expected period, in 93% of women two days before their expected period, in 93% of women one day before their expected period.

      Factors Affecting the Accuracy of At-Home Pregnancy Tests:
      Today’s tests are highly accurate and unlikely to yield false results. False positive results can occur due to the following:

      There are remaining levels of hCG in your body due to a recent birth or miscarriage.
      You are receiving injections of hCG to induce ovulation.
      An ectopic pregnancy (a fertilized egg that implants outside of the uterus) has occurred. This may produce either a positive or negative result on a home pregnancy test and is a life-threatening condition. If you experience any abdominal pain or abnormal bleeding during the time when you think you might be pregnant, contact your health care provider immediately.
      In a study of pre-, peri- and post-menopausal aged, non-pregnant women, about 0.2% of the women (over age 47) had very low levels of hCG that gave positive test results only when using a digital pregnancy test.

  3. Will a pregnancy test EVER say positive if theres no way you could be pregnant?
    I took 6 pregnancy tests this week, the first was Positive(EPT digital) and the rest were negative. 2 were line tests, and the other 3 were also digital(clearblue). So im most likely pregnant, but im getting a blood test done this next tues to confirm either way.

    So my question is, will a pregnancy test EVER EVER be positive if you dont have the HCG hormone in your body?

    • It’s common to get false negative if you have low hormone levels, and some tests are more sensitive to the hormones than others. It’s VERY VERY VERY rare to get a false positive, though, I’d say it’s time to call your doctor and get a blood test confirmation.

  4. I’m 10 DPO when can i test with clearblue easy digital and get the most accurate result?
    It says it can detect pregnancy 4 days before your missed period, but isn’t it less accurate then? Should I just wait until my period is late?

    I’m getting really anxious.

    • I love that test! Lol
      I tested 12 DPO at 9pm (no morning urine) and got a positive :)
      Good luck!

      Here’s what I did:

      From experience I am a very impatient person when it comes to pregnancy tests and waiting! Lol, I started testing 8 DPO -negative. 9DPO, 10 DPO, 11 DPO -All negative!

      Then…I took 4 tests *5 days before my expected period at 9pm: (12 DPO)

      Early response (took 2 tests)- veryyy faint line hardly visible (I was still unsure, maybe it was an evaporation line or the slot were the dye goes)
      Clear blue +/- (blue dye)(took 2 tests) – one positive, and one negative (Ok still unsure now, since blue dye is known to not be as reliable)
      Dollar store (1 test)- negative (afraid to trust such a low costing test)
      So I bought one more box of 2….this time digital…
      EPT Digital (2 tests)- both read clearly “pregnant”….ah to my relief…no faint + or –

      - So I am officially 6 weeks 3 days today… :)

      So…try a digital :) can’t go wrong!….but you are still early and HCG levels may still be low, every women takes different amounts of time for her levels to go up.

  5. How accurate are Pregnancy tests at 12 weeks?
    I took 6 home pregnancy tests-Clearblue Easy (not digital)
    then got two tests at planned parenthood. They were all negative.
    I still feel pregnant and am having all the symptoms, especially nausea.
    Today I bought EPT brand, and I wanted to know how accurate these tests will be
    if i am 12 weeks pregnant, would the hormone levels be different? I am supposed to get my period in two days so when would be the best time to take them?

    • Elevated amounts of your hCG hormone trigger a positive pregnancy tests result. If you are pregnant then these levels peak around the first month, fall slightly, and plateau throughout the pregnancy. Although there is a slight dip in hCG levels it should still be sufficient for the pregnancy tests.
