This past cycle I used Femara and had a trigger on Nov 28th, IUI on Nov 29th and I think I ovulated on the 30th. I usually have a 26 day cycle. I haven't had any symptoms at all!

I am currently CD29 (AF Late) and 14dpo. AF is still not here! I went for a blood test yesterday, called for the results this morning and the nurse said Negative. WHat is going on with me? I am confused, sad and hurt. I'm trying to have hope, but it's too difficult right now. Anyone else ever go through something like this?

I have no experience with that. I'm on Clomid and have read up on it, and I've heard that it can lengthen LP in some women, so maybe Femara can, too? Do you temp? Are you on progesterone or any other supplements right now?

Unfortunatley I don't temp and I'm not taking any progesterone or any other supplements. I have zero symptoms and I always get a little crampy before AF. Any ideas?

I think I'd like to temp for future cycles.

Hmmm...that is a strange one for sure! Were you monitored with u/s and or b/w to time the trigger? In other words, were you sure that the follie(s) were ready for the trigger? That is the only thing I can think of...that maybe you didn't ovulate?

I know CLomid lengthens my LP, so its very possible that Femara has lengthened yours as well. I'd not stress it until you get to 18 DPT

I had an u/s the day of my trigger. I had 2 follies. One was 21 and the other was 20. I triggered right there in the office after the u/s. Any way I could have a late implanter? I'm not going to stress about it anymore. I'm so tired (we've been ttc for 4 years!), and just confused. You know?

Those follies sound pretty good....I can't see why they wouldn't have ruptured.

I think Jen might have hit it on the head with the lengthened LP scenario, although a late implanter is always a possibility. Did your nurse give you a number from the bloodwork, or just the "negative" determination?

I hope your bloodwork was wrong. I sure seems like you've been through a lot and the odds are in your favor now for your BFP. Good Luck.

A lot of BFP come from the strangest cycles!!!

Just negative. I called back for next steps and they told me the dr ordered them to check my estrogen level and progesterone and for me to call back tomorrow morning.

that is weird. I'd have them run another HCG level for you at this point, or see if you mayve have a functional cyst that is preventing AF from showing
