Blood test taken on day 21 of your cycle (or 7 days before AF is due).
On day 21 your progesterone level should be higher than 30.
Mine was only 2.5 which suggests no ovulation.
However, I've still not come on, so thinking I just tested too early now. I'm 5 days late which means I had a blood test on day 16 max (think my cycle has gone long again)....well on day 16 my level should only be around 2-5 anyway?
So we've decided to go for scan on 16th and if results show pco, then have another blood test again.
From what I have read, charting basal temp or using opt can also help determine this so might start this next month. Good luck with your testing. Fingers crossed for you Xx
Ok so update. I really can't shake this feeling of 'being pregnant'.
Ok ok, I know what you're thinking. I have had 4 bfn tests, I've been told by the doctor that I don't ovulate.....but they CAN be wrong? Right?
I have now had back ache over a week. I can feel a tightening in my belly which has been there for days. My nipples keep feeling sore and every so often I get a wave of nausea. Today I have also experienced increase in discharge and I keep crying!
I don't want to take a test as I'm scared this is all in ny head....but I can't help feeling a little excited. Especially since AF is a no show. Problem is....I don't really know when she was expected as my cycles have been quite irregular the past 8 months.
It's Easter weekend....its a time for miracles right??
Currently praying for mine! After the news on Wednesday I need as much baby dust as possible! Determined that I'm not just going mad!! Xx
Ok, so 9 negative pregnancy tests later I think I have to concede.
Despite the symptoms I've felt, its obviously not going to happen for us this month. AF is still a no show, but I think I've accepted now that she will arrive any day now. Thinking I'm just back up to a 38 day cycle again which means Wednesday this week she's likely to pop in.
As much as I have tried to discredit clear blue digital tests and ignored their result, the Asda ones also came back with just a lonely line.
