Chances of Pregnancy with Negative HPT - The Statistics!
Well I wanted to link to this article as I have been torturing myself with 3 negative hpts this month! Obviously we all hope for the best but this does help to bring a bit of realism... though there is still some hope in the figures too
I last tested at what I guesstimate to be 13 dpo (currently approaching 16dpo if AF doesn't get me in the middle of the night!) so I still have a 9.5% chance of being pregnant according to this! The numbers are based on an 'average woman' with a 25% chance of getting pregnant each month...
That's interesting and good to obsess over! It doesn't mention what sensitivity the tests are though. Obvioulsy there will be a big difference between a 10miu and a 25 miu.
If you like the numbers game, here's a link to average hcg levels day by day and the lowest recorded for each day which still resulted in a live birth - e.g. you could have reall low hcg levels even on cd16 - not enough to show on a test, but still have a healhy pregnancy.
