This sounds like the time for your period to start and , if you are bleeding, this is probably your period.

The Dettol thing does NOT work (talking from experiance) ... how can a PG test show negative and Dettol show positive ... I agree with Nix the Dettol test is a load of ****

Oh thanx, never heard of it.

I think it might be too early, but why don''t you give your gp / gynae a call and find out?

it is like a urine test with dettol, aparantly if it turns milky white its negative and if it turns oily (like sour milk in coffee) then it is positive - so yeah

is it not too early now to be doing a blood test?

Hi Shadow,

Sorry for asking - may be having a blonde moment here, but what is a dettol test?

I agree with Rae, go for bloods!! I think you can go as soon as 2 weeks after conception.

Good luck, hope you get your positive!
