If you can test for pregnancy why haven't they invested a test that tells you if af is on the way???

So fed up. I'm now officially late, according to my regular cycle, but no sign of af and a succession of bfns.
I ovulate late in my cycle, and usually have a short luteal phase which I think is contributing to my failure to conceive this time round, so according to OPKs I'm only about 11dpo, so not ruling out anything yet.
But I just wish you could poas and it would tell you yes af is coming so I can just stop with all the stress and waiting.
Going out of my mind. Been ttc no 2 for almost a year now and I think I need to step away from the OPKs and the fertility apps because sure all this stress isn't helping!

Sorry just a rant really. Fed up today sad

If that test existed they'd lose s fortune on pregnancy tests. I used to poas obsessively each month I was ttc...spent a small fortune on them. I guess I'm not the only one.

I have used the ic ones so not wasting too much money grin although today I used a Superdrug one as I was saving it until I officially overdue. I had actually promised myself I wouldn't test this month until after I was due, but then my friend who is pregnant gave me a load of her leftover ic the other day, which I promptly used all of.
I now have no more in the house so I'm going to try and not test for at least a few more days (although I'm sure af is coming, I'm a bit cramps today)

I totally agree with you! It would take so much of the wondering away- you'd know it was on its way so could stop thinking "ooh what if..."

Am on CD28 today, my cycles are generally 28/29days.
I have no doubt that my period will arrive tomorrow morning/during the day, to set me up for a wonderful Monday morning & the start of another working week grin

No obvious signs yet, but some v mild cramping when I stop to think about it- but I don't tend to get many signs pre-period- or positive pregnancy test come to think of it!
