Chances of Pregnancy with Negative HPT - The Statistics!


Hi all,

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...

Here is the link if you're interested: http://babymed.com/faq/Content.aspx?14684

And yes I'm a numbers geek! but if it keeps me away from the sticks....

Lots of babydust to all!

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.
