I am doing a servey on this question because I have read that di/di twins can cause BFN on hpt though you are pregnant and I am wondering how often this happens...<br>
I know that a lot of women don't know if they're di/di twins are identical or not but for those of you that do know, well, even those of you that don't know...<br>
did you ever have false BFP's (BFN though you were pregnant)??<br>
and what dpo did you get your BFP, if you remember??<br>
thanks for your help!!<br>

I don't understand how you can have a FALSE positive when you're in fact pregnant with any type of gestation?? Does not compute?<br><br>
Mine were Di/Di frats, got my (true?) BFP 12 days past IUI.

I'm not sure how this happens either.. but this is just a peice of the info I copied..<br><br>
"heterogeneous molecules of hCG 2,3,4 were produced from two placentas, and which failed to produce immunoreactivity with the pregnancy kit."<br><br>
thanks for your reply hope to hear lots more.

well i know when your HCG is really high sometimes it can confuse a traditional POAS test and make it read negative. So if you have high hcg from twins I could see that being as true.<br><br>
I got a glaring BFP at 8DPO with my di/di twins

My HPT was a BFP and I took it twice a few days after I missed my period. Expecting identical boys in 8 weeks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I had BFNs at 10 and 11 DPO, and then BFP at 12.<br><br>
ETA: I also had a beta HCG at 12 DPO (after I got the BFP my doctor called me in for bloodwork to confirm). It came back at 59.
