I've just had a 5 day blastocyst transfer. Is an over the counter pregnancy test one week later reliable?

It's normally recommended that you wait two weeks before doing the pregnancy test. If all has gone well and the blastocyst has implanted, there won't be enough hCG pregnancy hormone in your bloodstream one week after transfer for the test to be positive.
How do pregnancy test kits work?

Pregnancy test kits require you to test a sample of your urine. The absorbent wand reacts if a hormone called hCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin), which is produced by the embro, is present in your urine. As a backup, many kits include a second test.

How to use a test kit Not all kits look like the one shown here, but they work in basically the same way. Remove the test wand from the cap or cartridge. Hold the absorbent sampler in your urine stream for a few seconds. Replace the wand into the cartridge. Wait as directed. If you are pregnant, both windows will show a color.
