BFN...is it too soon?

I have a bad feeling about this month for me. I tested today, 10 dpo, when I first woke up. It was negative. I used the first response 6 day test. Is there a chance that I could still be pg? I am starting to lose hope.

My chemical pregnancy last month, I had negatives every day until 11 DPO. Just because the test says 6 days before, doesn't mean everyone has detectable HCG by 6 days before. You may not implant until later and then it takes a couple days for there to be enough HCG to detect. It doesn't mean you're out

If you look at the box it actually gives you the percentages of pregnant women that got a positive at that many days before their period. I think it starts around 68% (so 2/3) and then gets to 99% accuracy on the day of your missed period. You still have lots of time. Maybe wait two days and test again? Remember, hcg usually doubles every 48 hours so if you are at a 10 today (negative) you will be at a 20 at 12dpo (faint positive).
