I've dipped a million more tests and some have faint lines (only 2 were non-squinters), and some have nothing. I think they're faulty tests.

Is it unusual for you to be this late for AF? I cant see anything on them, but I know cameras totally wash out faint lines. But if they ARE faulty tests and its not normal for you to be this late, then hopefully a different brand test would show something!

I usually temp and use OPKs but this cycle I did not temp, or bother too much with ovulation tests. I get very bad ovulation pains, and this month was no different. When I take Femara (as I did this month), I generally ovulate on CD17, but I marked it down as CD16. I felt all my usual progesterone symptoms and didn't question my ovulation date or even if I did ovulate until AF didn't show up. She usually arrives on 14 or 15dpo, no fail.

At this point I would just like to know what the heck is happening, and if I didn't ovulate - why not? This dose has not failed me before.

So frustrating! I would want to know what was going on too! Maybe try a different brand, it could be that you got a bad batch of tests that aren't showing a line

Your urine could be diluted so the test lines will be faint, maybe try again in the morning and see what the test is like then. X

I think your tests are faulty, you may get a clear line on another test. My last pregnancy I got a faint BFP at 19dpo and some of the tests i was using (same sensitivity) were still stark white for another whole week, and even then they were questionable. Good luck!! I think it sounds promising for you, buy a better test!

I took another test and there was an even fainter line but still there. I went and brought some FRER. There is a line but it's faint line. It appeared within a minute and we are currently at the 6 minute mark and it's getting darker. I have no idea when I ovulated but I am scared because the last time we BD was CD20 and I'm now CD36.

I think do another FRER tomorrow or the next day and see if it's darker

I just feel like crying because I feel so uneasy about this. This is the third time I have been pregnant in 18 months and we have been TTC for 5 years. So even if everything was fine I would still worry, but given that I don't know when I ovulated and the tests are so faint... I don't feel very optimistic. It's not because I don't want to, but because I need to be realistic.
