So i have posted a few threads over the couple of weeks as mother nature hasnt been easy on me. I came on my first period the 9th of June & was on until the 23rd. It was a very 'weird' period. I even had a BFP the last day of my period, but then had a negative urine test at the docs & negative blood test. But my question is, as it was a long period, would i still be due on my normal start date? My normal start date would of been yesterday, & theres still no sign of AF. I have weird aching/pinching crampy feelings in my lower stomach & also a weird pain that goes from my vagina into my groin (sorry tmi). I done a pregnancy test yesterday (day period would normally be due) but was a BFN. could i still be pregnant just early? Is it just AF coming a bit later on due to long lasting period? I should add me & DP are TTC & have unprotected every couple of days. I do apologise for the long post guys!smile

i think post-mc AF are often different to normal, so that maybe the cause of your long period.
in terms of cycle length, although my first post-mc AF was normal length, that cycle was about 5days longer than normal, so i guess it's possible yours could be too...doesn't mean you're not pg though smile

give it 3-4 days and if AF hasn't appeared test again i guess?

good luck x

I will test again if AF hasnt shown. I just thought surely these symptoms arent nothing! Im probably going mad! Im constantly prodding my boobs blush this is a much wanted pregnancy but i cant get to grips with my fertile days & what not. its a very long & confusing process x

Do you know if/when you ovulated in this last cycle? If so then count 12-14 days from that point and that's when you do the pregnancy test.

The first couple of cycles after a MC can be all over the place. There's a reason the first one is called the WTF cycle on these boards. With mine I bled for 10 days, then ovulated at the normal time and my next period was a little delayed (30 days rather than 28) but was a normal period (5-7 days).

If you're not pregnant this cycle then it's worth getting ovulation test strips (Poundland, Amazon or eBay all have cheap ones) and use them every day from CD10 (10 days after the start of your period) until you get a positive and then you will most likely ovulate in the next 12-24 hours. The period from 5 days before ovulation to 1 day after is your fertile period. You should then expect AF or a positive pregnancy test usually around 14 days after ovulation. If you have a smartphone, tablet or PC you can download an app to track all this for you every month so you can start to see a pattern
