OTD different with different clinics... Do they not risk early miscarriage?

My clinic says 16 days post egg collection. Others are 14 days post egg collection... Its terrifying! Doesn't the 14 day guidance risk people stopping progestogen after a "negative" test and ending a perfectly viable pregnancy??
I mean there are massive differences between success rates, maybe stuff like is why!

Are you sure it’s egg collection and not egg transfer? My clinic gets you to test 14 days after transfer - by then a negative is definitely a negative. If there’s any doubt you need to call and they will get you to repeat (and the progresterone continues).

My clinic says 14 days past EC but with a blood test so even the slightest HCG levels will show up, they don't advice home testing before this.

@Teddybear45 14 days after transfer! So even if it was a 3 day transfer it would be 18 days after EC.
I've definitely heard of people saying 9dp5dt.

@lillyleaf makes perfect sense your clinics way. I don't know why all clinics don't do blood tests. Cost I guess. A lady on the conception board was one of the 1% (or something similar) of people who don't show hcg in her urine. So if she did a home test she would have stopped her medication and come in her period. Awful.

My clinic was 16 days before post collection as they said sometimes results can be unclear at 14..... I had mine at 15 though as it fell over weekend and that's what they wanted to do

Mine was also blood test and they advise not to home test
