<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I was sad enough about the "Not Pregnant" (Middle of the day urine, 9 DPO) then why does the digital have 2 lines on the stick? I know there has to be a crushing, logical explanation...Does anyone know?<br><br>
Thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I had a negative digital test with mid-day pee at 10 dpo, even though i'd had a positive non-digital test that same morning. I got a positive digital at 13 dpo (and other non-digital positives at 10, 11, 12, and 13 dpo...)<br><br>
So the test you took is negative right now, but you could get a positive later this month.

9 DPO is very early to get a postive on a digital. From what I understand, the CBE one-piece tests are the most sensitive. The CBE two-piece test (with ejectable sticks) and the EPT are less senitive (50 miu I think).<br><br>
There will almost always be two lines on the test. If you are peeing in a cup, be sure to hold the test in the urine for the full 20 seconds that the instrutions specify. The folks at the CBE hotline told me the full time was necessary to get accurate results, and I've heard stories of not holding it in the urine long enough leading to false negatives.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:
