Anyone Miss AF In Past Few Days But Still Getting BFN

AF was due yesterday, but no AF as yet. I haven't been charting and don't know my luteal phase length, but I do use mymonthlycycles.com to track the regularity of my AF. In the past 12 months I have had two 27 day months, four 28 day months, and the rest are 29. Today is CD 31 for me. Tested this morning with First Response and it was BFN. As that particular HTP is an early indicator and I am now a day late, it seems highly unlikely I am PG right?

Hey Vilandra! My cycles are always clockwork-28 days....and i was due for af on Monday or tuesday..and no sign of her. Ive taken several tests (testaholic) and all negative..Ive tried FRER, Fact Plus, and my One Step....Im beginning to get frustrated. I went off bc in early january and had a normal period last month.....they say your cycles can be messed up, but normally your first cycle will be the one messed up and since I was a reg cycles before bc I should regular now. I dont know whats going on. Its aggrivating, isnt it? My MIL didnt get a + until weeks into her preg with my husband..but..that was along time ago! lol! Im not sure what to do...Try one other test....Ive heard alot of ppl say the FR didnt do alot for them. Good Luck!

Hey LN. Thanks for the reply. I also recently came of BC (end of Dec) . Had AF bang on schedule at end of Dec and then also on schedule in Jan too. FRER is what i used, not tried another brand as yet. Have one FRER left, don't know whether to use it tomorrow or wait a while longer to see if AF shows. Yes it is agitating. I also heard the coming of BC can mess things up. I was on mini-pill, on which you are still supposed to ovulate, and as I was regular on it, and remained regular since coming off I really don't know what is going on either. Last month i though I had a bunch of symptoms, but AF showed up day it was due (late in the day though) and didn't get full b__wn until the next morning. That is what I though would happen yesterday, but no AF. Did some pretty close checking (tmi!) a few minutes ago and not a trace - milky/cloudy cm (no pink at all). No cramps, no sore b___bs. Have you any symptoms? I was wondering whether I o'd late this month and that is reason for delay ... who knows! It is so fricking frustrating not knowing!!!

I was set to o on the 7th..which was increadibly ewcm..but the next day I had a lil more ewcm, so I a__sumed I o'd then. my biggest thing is the sore nipples...this took my by surprise because Ive never had sore b___b/nipples in my life!! Not even before af. The other night I was lying in bed and it felt like someone stuck their finger inside my nipple and started to push it up...it hurt pretty badly and i have never seen my nipple so erect. I did think my arm pits were sore that night , too. I had the light cramping a week and ahalf ago....ive felt a lil nauseas and light headed last night, but I had the flu about two days after ovulation and felt it then too...so i dont know. Ive had the same milky/cloudy cm as you. Yesterday I started to feel like af was here and kinda feel it this morning, but normally I only feel it the day after she starts. And its only on my left side. Im guessing im not preg and something else is going on. Someone suggested I try a clear blue, maybe Ill do that. Is this ur first ttc?

Yes, first TTC. If you o'd on 8th that puts you at 16 dpo right? Do you know the length of your luteal phase? They say average is 14 days, but can be 10-16 days. Don't give up hope! You not out until AF shows up. Have you vistied the site www.twoweekwait.com? Lots of helpful int there. Baby dust!

btw .... i haven't like clear blue since the changes to the whole +/- thing. Twoweekwait.com also has plenty of info on HTP's and what is best etc.

LN, where did you read that the first month should be the one messed up? It can be any for the first few months. You shold also notice a whole host of things you never did before, because you haven't ovulated in a long time. I went off the pill last October, and I've had so many symptoms that I thought could only have been pregnancy, but it turns out it's just because I hadn't ovulated in 15 years! All this must have happened before the pill, but I don't remember it since it was so long ago. As for the ewcm, that doesn't necessarily appear on the day of O. There are a lot of women on this site, including myself, who chart and have reported ewcm up to four days before O. Good luck ttc!

thanks lin! maybe thats what it is! I just ovulated later on. That whole time was a blur because we bd'd on the 8th and on the morning of the 9th dh got flu and then later that night I got it for two days. I really dont think Im pregnant, so hopefully thats what it is! Thanks again! Vilandra-if my period doesnt come in the next week or two Im gonna go ahead and head to the dr just to rule out any problems. I cant imagine af not showing up that late tho! Hopefully it is just the birth control~ thanks again~

Would you do me a fav and explain the luteal phase....what happend to naturally conceiving like our mothers and grandmothers did! lol....must be all that polution!!! lol!

Lin - hi - i am not sure about what bc LN was on, but mine was the single hormone kind on which you do still ovulate - (hence having to take the stupid thing at exactly the same time very single day and never having any 'off' weeks. It works by affecting the mucus around the entry to the cervix to prevent the little guys getting past and also the utuerus lining to inhibit impanation (basically a smaller dose of the morning after pill). I have been off mine for 2 months now and af has remained regular. Anyways, good luck and baby dust to you!

I was on seasonal......I started taking it at the end of Nov/beg of Dec...so, when I went off of it I was on week 6 day 5....like, I said I got me period right at 28 days and if I were still on it this would be the month when I get my period....and no period...lol....your right, that probably does have something to do with it.

Ok, I'm not sure what you want to hear about the luteal phase, but here goes. After the follicle in which the egg developed bursts (i.e. ovulation), the follicle develops into the corpus luteum, which releases progesterone during pregnancy. The luteal phase is 10-17 days long and does not vary by more than a day or so month to month. I'm not sure what else you'd like to know. That's what I know. Perhaps your best bet is to just google "luteal phase."
