What would you do?

Hello Everyone,


I took a test one day after AF was supposed to arrive (Jan. 26th) and got a BFN. AF still hasn’t showed up and I'm now 2 days late (which I’m never late). I read online that I should at least wait one week before testing again. Also, I haven’t been temping or charting just tracking my periods for the past year and using an IPhone app to tell me when I ovulate. What would you ladies do?

I would wait a few more days.... although it's REALLY REALLY hard and you may not want to... if you truly aren't PG and you keep getting BFNs it's going to drive you nuts!!


I have never been late - EVER - and last cycle I was 7 days late. It ended up being a BFN :( I took a test probably every day and it drove me crazy, honestly it didn't help. Of course you can do what you feel is right, but coming from someone who went through the same thing last cycle, it stressed me out more and made me more upset that I kept getting BFN's :( HTH!

It is really up to you whether or not to keep testing or to wait until you are a week late, but if still no AF a week after she was due then I would call your doctor and make an appointment.  Without temping there is no way to know if you had a delayed O which is why everything is pushed out or if something else is goofed up.....FX that you will get your BFP this cycle!

Ditto the Kristen and Claire!  As hard as it is I'd probably try to wait it out before testing...

I'm not sure about you, but every BFN - regardless of the fact that my rational mind knows it might just be poor timing - breaks my heart. I can't help it. The less I see one dark line on a stick the better. So I would wait. But it's super hard, and if your impatience get's the better of you, that's okay too;)
