Hi everyone, I'm 14DPO and yesterday I had a negative beta. I found out this week that I'm diabetic and it isn't well controlled. On Monday my doctor will probably start me on some new medication. My question is this: Is a beta taken 13DPO always accurate? I just want to be 100% sure I'm not pregnant before I start taking any new medication. Plus even though I know it is for the best if I'm not pregnant right now, it still makes me really sad. Thanks in advance for any advice.

I am sorry, what is a BETA? Is that a blood test?

Yes, a beta is a blood tes. It test for the amount of hcg in your blood. Here is a short article on one: What Is a Beta Pregnancy Test?

If you are sure that's how many dpo you are then I would say yes.In my experience I always had a positive beta at that point when pregnant.

For about 13 dpo but the meds wouldn't hurt you or the baby. If you start on metformin then it will help you get pregnant. The drs would give it to pcos patience to help them ovulate and it is safe. It help with my blood sugars.

I had an ovidrel shot on 12/26 at 9 p.m. so either it didn't work and I didn't ovulate or I ovulated on 12/28.

I'm already on metformin since I have PCOS. That is all I needed to take to conceive DS. I was a lot younger than and weighed less too.

I really don't think there is much of a chance that I'm pregnant but I just wanted to make sure there was no chance before I start new medication. One of the meds I was thinking of is a class C so I couldn't take it if I was pregnant. I never had a beta with DS so I have no idea what my levels where with him. I do know that I took FRER 15DPO and it was a very faint positive. You didn't have to squint to see it so it was for sure but still very faint. It just makes me think that maybe I don't produce much HCG early on in pregnancy. Okay, sorry for rambling. I'll stop now
