is there anyway I could have gotten a BFP at 5dpo??


Im just wondering if there is any way I could have had a positive test at 5 dpo because I really dont know how many dpo I was when I took the test...here is the story...I am pcos and do skip periods sometimes and my last period was jan 11 so I skipped feb af it was supposed to start on feb 14 but I never even spotted well I took a test on march 11 (in the evening actually about 10pm) which was positive! well I had an ultrasound yesterday and they said I was right at 5 weeks and everything looked good they only saw sac and what could be the start of the baby she wasnt sure. but of course I got home and got to trying to figure out when we concieved and the only time that fits that timeframe would be our anniversary march 6th but I got my positive only 5 days past on the 11th that so how is that possible??? has anyone ever get a positive at 5dpo??? and when I type in march 6th in those calculators it puts me at 5 weeks 1 day! sounds right from the ultrasound! the bfp was faint but you could see it and it did get much darker a week later...Im just confused... oh well I gotta wait two weeks to find out more and hopefully see a hb!

5DPO seems incredibly early to me, you would have had to impant almost immediately and then started releasing HCG. However, i saw a post from someone on the 'mycycle' website who swore she got her BFP at 4dpo

Realistically no. The embryo must reach the blastocyct stage before it can begin to implant, and that takes 4-5 days, and a few days beyond that, at the earliest, for there to be enough hCG in your system to be detectable by a home test.

I can pretty much guarantee you ovulated earlier than you expected to, and so were further past than 5 days.

It has been known to implant as early as 3dpo so give it 48 hours and you could pick up the hormone at 5 dpo which is what you did. Or it was 2 or 3 days before that you o'd as they have a window of accuracy when measuring by u/s by about 4 days. They told me this when I went for my early scan so you could be 9 dpo really!

Am embryo doesn't reach the blastocyst stage in just three days. Four is considered very, very early, and rare enough that it's just said that an embryo won't reach blastocyst until day 5. An embryo can't implant before it's a blastocyst.

Weird I've read and heard from many people that implantation can occur as soon as 3dpo. This includes an RE who told a co-worker of mine this.
