False negative from digital test?


Hi ladies I wondered if any of you could shed some light on the possibility of getting a false negative with a digital test.

we've been ttc for 2 yrs and this is my first cycle on clomid... normally i'm not a sign spotter and i'm pretty used to not getting pregnant each month haha but this time was different.

i was due on sunday (going on my usual 28 day cycle) but theres so many little things that got me really believing i was pregnant this month. i've been incredibly tired, i've had lower back pain, sore boobs, cramping as though i'm just about to come on, eating like a horse (probably no change there :P) and last night i noticed my breasts felt heavy, not neceassarily bigger just plumper plus my nipples are puffy and have all these weird white/cream coloured lumps on them, i've had cm too which i dont normally this time of month.... anyway i went out and got a test this morning and was actually quite surprised when it was negative

i suppose my question is... could it be a false negative? i dont want to convince myself i might be pregnant when i'm not but i cant let it go for some reason and its driving me insane, any experiences similar to this?

I know of people who've had false negatives especially off digital clearblue. I pray this is your time and hope the symptoms you're describing will give you a bfp ON AN ORDINARY TEST in a few days time
Best of luck xx

ahh thats interesting... i presumed if i bought the more expensive digital tests that it would be more accruate but from what you say sounds like i was wrong.

Digital clearblue tests are sensitive to 25 (whatever the units of HCG are). When I was pregnant a few weeks ago a got a BFP with an First response early result test, but a BFN with clearblue digital. 2 days later I got BFP with CB digital. The First response tests are sensitive to 10, so much more sensitive than CB digital.

Try testing with an First response. They are cheaper and more reliable. Good luck XX

thanks for the advice ladies you've been really helpful and even if its not relevant this time then at least i'll know in the future

i think i might try a first response test then and this time i'll test first thing in the morning too, i've read thats more accurate. you'd think i'd know what i'm doing by now but i normally steer clear of pregnancy tests and wait for the

thanks again, fingers crossed!!

I took at test with FRER on 12dpo and it was neg. I was supposed to start on Saturday... still no AF. I am super scared to see another BFN. I feel the same as you... Could we have really low amounts of hormones??? I know I am just playing ames with my head, but it is very abnormal to be 3 days late... right? I have an avid 29 day cyle... Is there still a chance? Good luck! I hope it is a BFP for you and me
