Day 37 - BFN

(17 Posts)

This is driving me mad. I'm on day 37 of my cycle - no sign of any period, no pre-period symptoms, but negative tests! I have always been pretty regular (29 - 31 days), and have been off the pill for 2 years. I have had 2 negative tests (last Friday, which should have been day 1 of my period, and yesterday, 5 days late). The first I took at night, and figured I must just be late and accepted the negative test result. Then I read I should really be testing with my first wee in the morning, so I did that yesterday. Still negative, but still no period. I just want it to come now, so we can try again next month. This month was our first not taking any precautions, and we just happened to be on holidays and having lots of unprotected sex during what I later found out was my fertile window. Any words of wisdom?

Some people don't get a positive until a lot later; My sister didn't get one with my niece until 8 weeks and mine was a week after my period was due and it was still incredibly faint.
Why not try again testing in a few days?

The only way you will be late is if your pregnant, ovulated later than you thought or your stressed?

I got period cramps to the point where I had to have a hit bath and take pain killers before i got my BFP. Fingers crossed for you and test every other day? Xxx

Some times you just have a random cycle where you ovulate late and therefore have your period late. It can be caused by illness, stress or nothing much at all. I'd test in another week just to be sure, but not worry unduly at this point tbh

I didn't test positive until I was 9 weeks with my first. Which is why when I miss periods (I'm currently 2.5 weeks late with BFN) - I panic for what seems like an age and have to wait an age to find out...!?

Tried changing the pregnancy test? I tested negative with both pregnancies with first response and tesco. Tested positive with clear blue digital. Expensive but it may be worth a try or ask your GP for blood tests. Not that I want to worry you but it could also be a chemical pregnancy. The only way to know for sure is to try a different test or visit your GP.

Thanks ladies, AF arrived today.

So unlike me to be late like this. Also, I am experiencing the strangest period now. Soon after it started, I went to the loo and (sorry about the way TMI here), there was rather a large "plop" sound, and it felt like something fell out of me - similar to the feeling when a condom falls off during sex and has to be taken out. There was a long trail of jelly-like blood in the water, which was all congealed and very light red/pink in colour. (ewww, sorry again about the description!)

Still late for me.. I'm day 47 of my cycle. No sign of it either. Mild cramps but BFN. Strange!?

Emilyjane11 Sun 23-Nov-14 19:31:24

I had cramps for a few days before getting my BFP and since actually. Have you tried different branded tests? X

Mrsgentle2014 Sun 23-Nov-14 19:41:50

I've used hospital ones (I'm a nurse and we regularly check women for pregnancy) so I'm hopeing that they would show if I was..? My moods are so so erratic! sad

Emilyjane11 Mon 24-Nov-14 08:30:08

Do you know how sensitive they are?

Mrsgentle2014 Mon 24-Nov-14 10:56:08

No, not to sure? Had a bit of light brown discharge when I wipe, but still no AF. Getting a sharp pain in my left side that hurts to cough or sneeze... Don't know whether this is just mild cramping? X

Emilyjane11 Mon 24-Nov-14 11:38:43

I used to get that when I ovulated but in saying that im getting that now im pregnant. See if gives a number on the test mine were 10mui which is the most sensitive. Mine were bought in bulk from Amazon. I confirmed it with a clear blue though.

We're you TTC? If so were you looking out for when you were ovulating? X

Mrsgentle2014 Mon 24-Nov-14 13:57:59

Ah ok! 25mui.. Is that still quite sensitive? And no, we weren't TTC.. Only came off the pill to give my body a rest and it's decided to just confuse me instead smile lol x

Emilyjane11 Mon 24-Nov-14 20:07:07

Is this your first cycle off the pill? Sometimes it can take a while to get back into the swing of things and j would try do a 10mui one smile

Mrsgentle2014 Mon 24-Nov-14 20:42:54

Came off the pill in July/ August I think? Had a period at the end August and early October... Nothing since. So 7 weeks. Our bodies don't ever want things to be simple do they? X

Well that would suggest to me your periods have returned to normal. I would try and order a 10mui test or have a blood test done z
