Hi there,

My Ovulation Chart

For the first time in 6 months, I appeared to have ovulated and have actually made it to 13 DPO, almost ten days longer than my usual 'luteal phases' of 4 days or under. It even seemed like I had a possible implantation dip at 6 DPO. I was super hopeful when I tested today, but it came out a very decided BFN. It's been a devastating day.

AF hasn't been this late for me in years though, and if it doesn't show in 3 days (by 16 DPO) I'm going to test again. I used these really bad +/- HPTs with the blue dye that I've heard aren't the best out there, but DH loves bargains and suggested these instead of the first response with the 2 lines and pink dye that I'd originally wanted to get. These ones don't even have a brand name or say what their mIU/ml sensitivity is on the box. They're just called "One-Step Pregnancy test", and they look identical to the ones listed under the brand "Exact/Loblaws Canada" in the Fertility Friend Pregnancy test gallery. I made a guess that they were around 25mIU/ml, like the American Walmart brand (I got mine at a Canadian Walmart), but apparently the US and Canadian versions of Walmart tests are often different. Anyhow, it might be possible that I tested too early, but if AF doesn't show, I'll be getting a much more reputable brand.

But I'm wondering, what sort of test would I get for use after 16 DPO? Is there any disadvantage to using an early detection/more sensitive test if I'm testing later on? What type of test do you recommend? First Response?

My temps are still high, breasts are sore, and for a few moments while changing this morning, my nipples appeared dark, almost grey in colour, which I've never seen before. But after today's obvious negative, I'm cautious about being too hopeful.

Thank you for your suggestions!

Most of the ladies use First Response to make sure its a positive. The blue dyes aren't terrible, I have used them. A lot of us buy cheapies online and if we see a line of some sort we will splurge for the FRER or for a digital to get the real positive.
There aren't any draw back to using an early detection later. Its just more sensitive.

New siggie coming soon!

Due with #2 after 5 years of TTCMA. FET #1 after IVF #2 and immune therapy was just the ticket apparently!
