    Hey girls! Did a test today and it was negative but my period isn't due until Sunday (and even then its always late!). Anyway I did a Tesco test and was just wondering if anyone knows if they can give a false negative if used before missed period? Had weird symtoms this month which makes me wonder but it could all be in my head, haha!

    I knew I should have waited.....aaaarrrgggghhhhh!

    Hi Claire,

    The tesco tests are not sensitive enough to detect it this early. Try a First Early Response test if you must test again soon.

    Genies Girl.....when is your AF due?

    I dont know why we do it to ourselves either as we know its too early! I bought a Clearblue but I'm saving that!!!

    Needbabydust.....when are you hoping to test again?

    Lol I think we're all pretty bad really, I tested yesterday even though I knew it was far too early and then still got disappointed when it was negative. Aren't we a silly bunch!

    Mine is due on the 25th and I used an EPT this morning but got a BFN !!! But upon further reading in the box it said that those who test this soon only 53% get an accurate reading, so with the symptoms I am having I am in hopes that I was one of those that got the inaccurate reading cause it's to early...
