HPT VS BLOOD TEST

Post by branda » Mon Mar 30, 2009 7:37 pm

HI ladies, I called my RE today for advice and they told me that they do not believe in urine test because of the controversy they had with patients in the past and that blood test is more accurate. My Re told me that they have had patients who did HPT with 5times positve results, which turned out negative with blood test. Also, had patients with negative HPT with positive blood test. My Re is specialized on fertility only, with 25years experience, more expensive than my first failed IVF clinic.

I'm not trying to frighten anyone, but just want to know if anyone has ever heard such thing before?

please, kindly reply!

Branda, i don't know the statistics but I would tend to agree with your doctor. From everything I have read on this site many people have gotton pos. when really neg. and vice versa. I think that the only real way to be sure is a blood test.

Thanks a lot cookiegirl. I really appreciate ur honesty. I'm now 9DPT blast, but still hesitant to HPT. Just have to keep praising and believing GOD for he is the creator of life
