You guys seriously are the best. This is such a lonely experience even with a supportive husband and it's driving me crazy. Took an extra sensitive hpt today and BFN again. At this point I just need to go to a dr. and see why my AF is so late as I'm clearly not pregnant.

I'm new to TTC-ing, joined Fertility Friend today as well. Just to ask ladies, how soon after a missed AF would you test with HPT's? I read everywhere if you are pregnant the HPT should be positive day 1 -2 of missed AF.

Depends on how long your LP usually is. While you can get a bfp as early as 7dpo, its more typical for it to take a little longer. As I said above, if you can confirm O by temping, and know for sure that AF is late (more than 16dpo), you are likely pregnant and hpts just aren't picking it up. But if you are not temping, and cannot confirm O day, then chances are that you just ovulated later than usual this month. Prior to TTC, I had a pretty regular 30-31d cycle that I had tracked for 12months. While TTC, it ranged from 26-35d, with O anywhere from CD12-CD20. While a "typical" cycle is thought to be ~28d, a typical LP is somewhere in the 11-15d range and can vary from woman to woman. My LP was pretty consistent at 14d, so the month that my cycle was short (26d), I O'd on CD12. The month it was longer I didn't O until CD20, so more than a week difference in cycle length.

I know it's frustrating. TTC does weird things to our bodies.... Hang in there. Once AF does get here (if it dows), start charting/temping so that you can tell when you O and know better when to expect AF. If you eventually get a bfp, I bet that dating will show that you O'd later than expected (if you anticipate that baby would be 6wk, it might only be 4-5wk by dating).

Hi there! I am so glad that you are trying and not giving up. You are such a strong lady. It's important for you to stay patient right now. The symptoms are looking pretty good but just wait for some time. Time will clear out everything. Good luck!

Its okay if things didn't work out this time. I am sure they will work out later. Just make sure about a few things. It's really important to take care of yourself. If the clinic is operating at a high success rate the chances of success are high. This is because then the doctors are experienced. Other than this eat healthily. Sending baby dust your way.
