Trying to conceive

of realising your period is around 4 days late, doing a test and seeing a negative...
It was a late evening pee but the test said you could take it any time and based on how many days late I thought I am, it was about 99% effective.
At what point do you ladies test? I tried to put it off for longer but cracked under the pressure and now regret it. I was starting to enjoy the feeling that I might have been pregnant without actually knowing....

I've been using fertility friend to track periods. Came off pill on 1 May and basically since then my periods been extremely regular - 23 days. By my calculations I should have come on last thurs 26th. But.... this month I appeared to ovulate twice, which throw me, and just makes me think this cycle is screwed for some reason....

sorry JJ meant to ask what's FMU please?
01/10/2013 at 21:55
First morning urine is FMU was it a first response you used?
ah ignore last past - just seen what FMU is...

Of you ov'd twice when would you be due the second time?
01/10/2013 at 22:12
4 days late from the first.... didnt make a note of the "second ov" as was just really confused by iit happening twice, as it hadn't happened before..... I figured maybe this month was just a weird/longer cycle....

CJ - Although you didn't make a proper note of the possible 2nd ovulation do you have a rough idea how much later it was to the first? Might give you a bit more of an idea whether or not it's worth testing again
thanks JJ. My plan is to leave it another week and then do a test and no doubt my period will turn up in the meantime!

How frustrating. My 1st cycle off the pill was 29 days then the following cycle after that it was around 44 days which really threw me. I got a few bfn's & even went to the doctors to see what was happening & was told that sometimes that happens. Fingers crossed that it's just too early for you x

If you know what date you thought you ovulated the second time, i would go with that date. I know i personally get EWCM twice in a month and i always ovulate the second time. x

How frustrating for you. Echoing what the others said, try again in a few days if AF doesn't show up

Hey ladies. Thank you so much for all your help/comments, really useful. Little update - got my period this morning, so you were all right and the second time I ovulated must have been the real first/only time, so I was about a week early in thinking my AF was late.
ahhh it's such a crushing feeling..... I guess I just have to keep trying. I have to confess i didn't anticipate how it would feel every time I got my AF and realised no little half french baby.

Me and my friend at work were both late this month compared to usual she did a few tests and were negative but a week after her period was due (monday) she got a positive. I have had 2 negatives but trying again tomorrow as i'll be 9 days late smd have stitch and heartburn so hoping for good news! Its so hard though to not keep testing. Good luck with your next test be strong and wait until first thing x
