Hi there - I was hoping someone could help. I have realy irregular cycles (40 day average but range from 31 to 48 days) and this month experienced what I thought were early PMS symptoms at day 24 of cycle. These symptoms (very painful breasts, nausea, fatigue, cramping) have now been going on for 12 days with no sign of my period. I took a First Response test yesterday and saw what may have been a feint blue line (although I'm still not sure that this was where a mark should have been on the litmus, if you see what I mean). I repeated the same test this morning, with the same result (a barely there line that might well just be where a proper line should be). This afternoon I took a digital Clear Blue test to see how many weeks pregnant I was (if pregnant at all) and it showed that i was 'not pregnant'.
I'm confused about which test to take notice of and if, assuming that my average cycle is 40 days, it is possible for me to have been experiencing 'pregnancy symptoms' so soon after ovulation?
I'd be really grateful if anyone could offer me their advice

I would retest with a digital test in a few days using FMU. That is the only way you are going to be sure of the result I am afraid. It is entirely possible to get a faint positive that is not picked up by another brand of test, and still be pregnant. The digital tests only worked for me when I tested after I had missed my period. Good luck xx

Hi i have really irregular cycles from anything between 21days till 197 was my longest! I never know where i am and with both my pregnancies i just did a random test. I found both times an ASDA own brand cheepie test (2for under £5lol) came up with a line within the 3mins stated and the CBD has said not pregnant! I did a CBD a few days later (always with FMU) and with my son it came up 2-3weeks and with this pregnancy it came up 3+weeks so on both occassions it should have come up the 1st time. I would test again and if your not happy go to your dr. I always say no matter the test if a line is there its there! Fingers crossed for you! XX
