I'm ttc for baby #2, this is my first attept at ttc and only came off the pill in February. I believe my ovulation date was about 19th March and we dtd 16th & 17th March. For the last 2 weeks i've had the following symptoms. I've had 4 tests BFN and am really confused, is it too early for HCG to show up?
2DPO - Very moody and very tired
3DPO - Mild Cramps, pain in right side, emotional, low, clear runny discharge & weeing lots
4DPO - Stomach pains, tiredness, clear discharge
5DPO - Tired, backache, wind and stomach pains
6DPO - Nausea, backache, stomach pains, had the funny metalic taste for a few mins, tired and weeing lots
7DPO - Cramps, tired, wind, slight yellow discharge
8DPO - Cramps, evening nausea, dizzy when stand up too quick, wind and brownish/blood spotting.
9DPO - Spotting on and off all day but stopped in the evening - pink/peach coloured.
10DPO - Started spotting again on and off - pink/brown, only shows when wiping - sorry tmi. Crampy, bloated & backache. Breaking out in spots
11DPO - Bleeding stopped. First Response test negative
12DPO - Asda cheap test BFN

14DPO - stomach feels like af is about to start but no show

Corina, I hope this is helpful but I know coming off BC messes with your cycle and how long/short they are. Your luteal phase or time between ovulation and period are always the same not like your cycle which varies. Mine is 16 days(which is longer than most) so keep track of the days between and then you know exactly what date you are supposed to start. Some women don't get their BFP until 15dpo or later. If you go to fertilityfriend.com you can search charts by late positive HPT--it'll show you women who have gotten theirs late and give you some hope. Best of luck to you!
That information is very helpful, my cycles when on Microgynon were every 28 days and were always regular. I was too impatient to wait before ttc, with my little boy I waited 3 months after coming off the pill before trying so had chance to get used to my new cycles. This time around i'm not sure if these are symptoms of coming off the pill, I can't even be sure I ovulated. I guess it's just a waiting game to see when af starts. On my normal 28 day cycle it would be due today.
Well, my fingers are crossed for you. Coming off the pill is tricky, ooh the agony of waiting. I've been off the pill for 7 months and still no baby..Hope it is a much shorter road for you. Do you use the OPK?
I was on the same pill as you mentioned and my cycles were therefore the standard 28 days...but when i came off the pill my cycles were much longer, infact the first two were 42 days! Gradually the length reduced and i am now a regular 28 days again...but to reitterate what ws said above, you may have ovulated later than 'day 14' if you see what i mean!
OPK is an ovulation prediction kit-it tells you when your LH(hormone for ovulation) is surging. Helps you time doing the dead and gives you a good idea when you ovulated(normally have positive opk for 2 days). There are expensive ones like digitals or cheapies from the internet. Heck, who am I kidding..it's great because it gives you something else to pee on=)
I use the IC(internet cheapie OPK) and a CBFM(Clearblue fertility monitor). This will be my first, hopefully it will happen soon. I normally chart too-use your first morning temps as this will give you the exact date of ovulation-use fertility friend. Good night, I feel like a walking spokesperson for ttc. Yesterday i had a pinhead sized red drop on the tp(so sorry for that image) but was only 6 dpo. Hopefully it will turn out for you, gives me hope
