Okay, I know, I know. I pretty much do this every cycle: test and test and when I get my bfns all I want is for af to HURRY UP so I can try again! Now I'm late... arg! why?
So I usually have a 24-26 day cycle, and I have taken progesterone and clomid this cycle. However, the last time I took my progesterone pill was THURSDAY NIGHT. It's Tuesday morning, and I'm 1-2 days late, so where's af? Usually it only takes a 1-2 days for the progesterone to leave my body and all symptoms go away but...
I could have sworn that I had bloated/tender bbs yesterday and could see more veins in them yesterday, but maybe it's just the witch playing tricks on me. I've also been sick for the past 5 days with sinus yuckiness (yes, I'm sure that's a technical term heh). So I keep thinking maybe that's tripping up my body too.
So I got a bfn yesterday at 13 dpo (the day af is usually here by at the latest). My lp is usually 12-13 days. Is there really still a chance? Or should I try to kick-start af? And what do I do?
I hope that maybe you are just one of those people that get a late BFP, but I will share my experience with you. I took Clomid several times and it lengthened my cycle by a couple of days each time. Maybe this is why AF hasn't shown, or maybe hopefully you have a little bean snuggling in slowly. Is this the first time that you have been on Clomid?
Thanks ladies! Still no sign of the witch. I don't feel preggo, I mean I knew immediately with ds, but I have hope until af shows!
Yes! This is my first time on clomid, and I was ready to try dr google and see what it said about clomid lengthening a cycle, but I wanted to ask you ladies first maybe that's all it is, but my bbs are really throwing me for a loop. They're def fuller than usual and feel a bit heavy, which I don't usually get around af like some ladies do. Maybe this is from the fertility drugs, too? I've been all natural since Thursday night so it seems odd that it'd affect me still but what do I know? Hehe
I'm really considering retesting if af doesn't showin 24 hours, even though I know it'll probably be another bfn :/
Okay... STILL no af...? I did orientation at my new job today and stuck in a tampon just in case. When I pulled it out, there was a tiny bit of brown on the end. I wish I could hope for ib (I had this around 13dpo with ds) but it's now 15dpo, and even though I don't feel symptoms of EITHER af or a baby, well, I guess I'm thinking it's probably the If she doesn't show tonight, we'll bd And if she doesn't show by the morning, I just may test again.
I did read last night of a few cases where women who were taking clomid who tested throughout (like we all do!) wouldn't get a bfp until late. I know my chances are slim, but I'm still hopeful. Has anyone heard of testing but not getting a bfp til late?
I really hope you do get your bfp!!! But I took clomid back in February and I normally have a 25d cycle, had never ever had any spotting in between cycles and after I took clomid I had spotting off and on until af showed on cd 50!!! Clomid really messed with my cycle. I really hope that this is not the case for you and you get your well deserved BFP!!! KUP
Well the Dr that put me on clomid was a quack, he never did any testing before I started the clomid no US or bld work...nothing!! I did not continue with the clomid and I did not tell the Dr, but on my next cycle after the clomid I requested to have a US on CD 11 and I had 3 mature follies over 18 mm and on CD 19 had a progesterone draw and it was 25 so needless to say I did not need the clomid! I have since seen a new ob/gyno and she could not believe that a dr would prescribe clomid without a full workup.Dr "quack" told me that clomid would not mess up or make my cycle longer but my new Ob/gyno says that clomid can for certain people really mess up their cycles and I know for a fact that it did with me because the next month af showed up right on time. I really hope that this is not the case for you and that you have a little bean that is just taking his time snuggling in. Please KUP.
hey ladies! Well last night dh and i dtd, and I had more spotting after. When I woke up this morning, I peed into a cup and thought about dipping a hpt into it... but then I wiped and there was af! Ugh.
So I called my ob today and they said to count yesterday as cd1, and to do the 50mg of clomid from cd3-7 again. I have to get labs done on cd21 to check my progesterone levels to make sure I o'd. better luck next time I guess. Feeling pretty down :/
