Each cycle, no matter what you're doing, natural, IUI, IVF etc., do you POAS every day until you get that BFP or until AF shows or do you wait.....

When we were trying on our own I was a total POAS addict. I wasn't getting that BFP so I finally stopped wasting all my $$$$$. Now that we are ttc with MA I am even more afraid to POAS....Although its very hard to keep myself from buying tests (if I have them in the house I pee on them) but the FEAR is what keeps me going lol.

Complete addict.
And since this next cycle will be with the use of a trigger, I'll test every day after the trigger to see it go positive then negative, then keep testing till it goes positive again. Think I need to order some more tests.

I used to be insanely addicted, like testing starting at 7DPO Now I wait until at least 11-12DPO, if at all.

I was a few years ago. I have not POAS in like 2 years.

To be honest it's a good feeling not to be a POAS addict anymore

With Joey, I took one test. With Bayleigh, I was a complete ADDICT (it was kind of sad LOL). So far I have only;y bought a few opk's but even now I still dont want to use them. Mostly because I don't want to see a neg.

I hate peeing on sticks because I hate seeing one line. I'd rather wait until I'm a week late to test or have bloodwork done because I just don't want that negative.

Hi, my name is Melissa, and I am an addict

I peed on OPKs every day for about 6 weeks so I could catch my first PP ovulation. I was using ICs, but then I broke down and used a digi, too, just to make sure. Do I really think I'll get pregnant? No! I guess I just can't help myself!
