frer not getting darker? (PHOTO ADDED)


Sorry no photos as can't get the thing sorted out just now.

Does anyone have any experience of frer tests NOT getting darker day by day when you are testing early?

I tested 9dpo, 10dpo and 11dpo and got a very faint (but definite) bfp on all of them. But they are not getting darker, in fact the last was probably a bit lighter.

To make it worse this is an ivf cycle so I had a hcg trigger shot 11 days before the 9dpo test, 12 days before the 10dpo test and 13 days before the 11dpo test. Very stupidly I did not test the trigger shot out fo my system - big mistake!

So now I am guessing the trigger is either leaving my body really late so they are false bfps, or the pg is not viable since hcg levels must be increasing very slowly or not at all?

Any thoughts?

Anyone had this experience with frer not getting darker?

PS - last time I had a bfp I had a quick dark result on frer on 14dpo.

I thought the HCG shot should be out of your system by now but it is still very early to be testing and getting really dark lines. Keep testing and if they get lighter or disappear all together then worry but hcg rises at different levels for each person, I hope the lines get darker for you.

Have you ever had a real bfp with early lines that stay faint for quite a few days?

I suspect she can but doesn't want to wait till the clinic will give her one, right Mayflower?

You are what? 13 DPO today? When will they agree to do the beta? 16DPO? Have you tried switching HPT brands? To another red dye one.

I'm afraid you can only keep on testing since you never checked that it was out.... Is this your first IVF cycle? I can only imagine how anguished you are. Good luck and let us know!!!

No betas at my clinic!!! They never do them.

Not my first cycle either (you'd think so wouldn't you!!!). Just never been so silly as to test early before so didn't really know what i was doing!!

Was getting the faint tests on 9dpo, 10dpo and 11dpo (even lighter).
This morning, 12dpo, was a little darker for the first time, so am feeling hopeful again. What a rollercoaster!!!

Anyone know what Equate/Asda Fair Lady tests actually pick up. It says 25 units and I got bfp on that last night? Have seen some stuff on internet that it may pick up less, I wanted to try a harder test to get an idea if levels are rising.

Thank you all

Hmmm are you sure you are 6 or 7 weeks poppy? Just can't see how your hormonal level was there one day then not for a week and a half then back on. It sounds to me like you miscounted something and when you got the first faint BFP is when you were Oing and if you BDed again you conceived from then on.

I don't mean this to sound bad, just my 2 cents.

And mayflower if you still have issues posting it PM me and I can try to explain some more.
