I'm currently 19dpo with no af and soo confused! I took a target brand pregnancy test this morning and got a very faint positive almost immediately. I had a rushed blood test done today and it came back negative! I'm thinking maybe it was an evap on the hpt? But my temps have been triphasic since 13dpo! My normal lp is 13/14 days but was once 16. I was also spotting a lot earlier this cycle, which has never happened to me before. I have my yearly ob appointment coming up on Monday, but I'm freaking out. Any insight would be great!
here is a link to my chart (ignore the overlay chart I just dont know how to get that off):
with my second pregnancy i had a faint positve hpt, so i did the same thing. I got negative blood results, and less then a week later i had 5 strong positive hpt's! my midwife couldnt believe it! still a good chance
Thanks! I'm going to try to wait a few days to retest. The test from yesterday was using my FMU so I want to give it a few days to get darker if i am pregnant. My temps have never been higher than 36.7 before, so as soon as they went higher I began to suspect something was up. I'm just worried that it's an ectopic because of the faint positive and brown spotting or a luteal cyst.
im kinda wondering the same thing. Been trying to find out but all i seem to find is info on short LPs not long ones.
I usually have roughly 60 day cycles, only a couple of cycles in the last 4 years have been 'normal'
So when i started temping & charting via FF i found i am most likely O about now (im on CD 16) Im having O pain, Cm has gone from dry, to wet and now egg white. Along with lots of other symptoms to go with it. Im expecting a temperature shift in next couple days.
But whats bugging me is, ive always believed that i must have O'd late in my cycles because isn't a leuteal phase only supposed to last 10-16 days? And judging by my last several cycles im not even anywhere near due for AF. So if wicked witch comes as expected then doesnt that make my leuteal phase 44 days long?
I really hope that this cycle is yet another rare 'normal' one and get my BFN or AF sooner rather than later.
I'll keep looking into it, and if i find anything out i'll let you know
This is so unusual for me! I always have normal(ish) cycles with o between cd 14 and cd 21 and then an avery lp of 13 or 14 days. Have you been checked for poly cystic ovary syndrome? I think that can cause a long lp. I was checked a while ago.. had blood work and an ultrasound done but I don't have it which leaves me even more baffled.
Well PCOS being so common & with the typical symptoms being so much like mine ive always believed its what i have. Dr referred me to gyno 2 yrs ago for ultrasound & diagnostic laparoscopy, found nothing. Only bloodtest i had done was at the drs office which was only one random test, and on a random day of my cycle (what the bloodtested for i dont know). Still nothing. But have since found out you can have PCOS without actually seeing cysts, as its the syndrome in itself that causes them. Not sure how right that is??
As for you, what kind of test did you use? There is always a chance you still are PG, some women dont tell for weeks that they are really BFP simply because their HCG levels are not yet high enough. Or maybe you're just having an off cycle, it happens. Have you been stressed more than usual lately?
I'm not exactly sure what I had done. I have some of the other symptoms of PCOS which is why I had the blood work done, but everything came back normal. After that though my doctor had the ultrasound done to check for cysts just to be sure. That was fine, but they told me I have a possible bicornuate or septate uterus. I was actually supposed to have a diagnostic mri on Thursday which was when I took the test that gave me the faint positive. I ended up canceling until I get my period just in case.
I have my yearly ob appointment on monday so hopefully she'll be able to give me some insight. Is it possible to tell if you're pregnant from an internal exam? After the negative today I'm seriously doubting I'm pregnant. I haven't really had any symptoms other than gagging over the smell of eggs last night.
I'm just super stressing now since I'm leaving the country on Wednesday and won't have access to normal health care for nearly a month.
