I am on my second IUI this month. The doctor put me on progesterone for a unknown reason. I don't have any luteal phase issues. So I took a test yesterday and it was negative. So now here I am with no AF, mild cramps and I am off the progesterone for 5 days now.
Does anyone have any idea when AF comes after stopping the injections? This is just pure torture. We have been trying to concieve for 2 years this month. Thanks for the response.
Its crazy because there is nothing wrong with me or my husband. I am trying to hang on to some hope and thinking maybe I will get lucky. I just don't know if the injections messed up my cycle and this is why I am so late.
Yet I stopped it 5 days ago. If nothing happens tomorrow I will test again. Congrats to you on your little miracle. I am not certain how much IVF is here in Florida.
It seems like it is real expensive but surely worth it. Where you on the progesterone injections or suppositories? I was taking the oil shots, no fun. Wow eight years. I can't imagine going through that heartache for so long, as I can barely stand it now.
What is important is that you did not give up. I am sure all of this had made you a stronger person. I am going to keep you in prayers and wish you a great pregnancy and a happy, healthy child.
You surely deserve it. As for me, I am usually a day girl, so being on day 31 is very odd for me. I think I am going to take your advice and go get the blood test.
Thanks again for your response and congratulations on a much deserved blessing. Thats so nice. I feel the same way.Keep me logged in. Become a member - Sign up.

You're not alone—getting a negative test with a missed period is more common than you might think. While home pregnancy tests have improved over the years and are an extremely accurate predictor of pregnancy, there have still been many instances of a test giving a false negative result. At-home pregnancy tests work by testing a small sample of urine for hCG—human chorionic gonadotrophin.
Stuart Spitalnic from Brown University asserts that "taking the test too early and not being pregnant are the main reasons for a negative test. If you take the test too early, then your hCG human chorionic gonadotrophin hormone levels are too low for the test to detect. Missing your period could mean that you ovulated later than usual. Wait two weeks after your period is missedand take the test again for an accurate result.
Don't drink too much water before taking the test. For best results, test the first pee in the morning. Pregnancy tests work by detecting the pregnancy hormone hCG.
If you are pretty sure you are pregnant because you've been experiencing some early pregnancy symptoms but have a negative test result, one of the most common reasons is that you have taken the pregnancy test too early, and your body has not produced enough hCG hormone for the test to detect it. So, to get a reliable test result, wait two weeks after your period is missed. By this time, your body will be creating plenty of hCG, and your home pregnancy test will be far more accurate. The test may have expired, or it may have been stored improperly e.
Buy a new test, and try again to make sure the results are accurate. If you have irregular menstrual cycles, then having a negative test but no period might mean that your ovulation was simply late this month. This will ultimately delay the implantation date, which might have caused you to miscount the number of days when you can finally take the test. This is why it's advisable to test a week or two after the day you were expecting your period.
If you conceived late in the month, your hCG levels could very well be lower than the pregnancy test can detect, therefore resulting in a false negative. Your menstrual cycle can be divided into two phases: the follicular phase, which begins on the first day of your period and ends when you ovulate, and the luteal phase, which begins after ovulation and ends when your next period starts.
The luteal phase usually lasts days and doesn't vary much, but the follicular phase could be affected by physical or mental changes, such as exercise, stress, diet, etc. A negative test and no period could just mean that your period is late because your ovulation started later.
Women with irregular periods have a longer window for ovulation, and thus, are particularly prone to miscounting and even having skipped periods.
If you keep getting a negative test but still have no period, then you should consult with your doctor. Major changes in your cycle can be symptoms of other conditions, including but not limited to pregnancy. Louis calls this the "variant hook effect. She explains that part of the problem is that "hCG comes in many different isoforms, and after five weeks of pregnancy, you get much more of one variant form called the beta core fragment than you get of the hCG intact molecule.
In other words, at-home pregnancy tests are intended to detect early molecular forms of hCG. After five weeks of pregnancy, the hCG's molecular structure changes and that structure is unable to be detected as effectively, sometimes resulting in a false negative.
Carrying two or more babies causes a woman to produce very high levels of hCG and at-home pregnancy tests may not be able to detect it because there's actually too much. This is known as the "high-dose hook effect.
Gronowski explains that hCG tests work by forming a "sandwich" with two antibodies as the "bread" and the hCG molecule as the "meat. Some women report positive results after diluting their urine with water, however, a blood test at the doctor's office is a better option for accuracy. An ectopic pregnancy occurs when the fertilized egg implants itself somewhere other than the uterus usually in the fallopian tubewhich delays the production of hCG hormones and causes severe pain in the lower abdomen or to one side.
This condition is quite rare and occurs in only 1 out of 40 pregnancies, but it is very dangerous and must be diagnosed early to prevent life-threatening consequences. This is extremely rare. Gestational trophoblastic disease occurs when tumors form in the layer of cells called the trophoblast that normally surrounds an embryo.The ability to detect a pregnancy is sometimes misunderstood.
If a woman has just ovulated, it might be impossible to tell yet whether she is pregnant or not. Even after her egg is fertilized, it may take up to six days before the embryo attaches to the wall of the uterus. Only when this implantation takes place can the signs of pregnancy be observed. Generally speaking, the pregnancy cannot be identified until about 14 days past ovulation or "14 dpo" it may also be referred to as "14dpo".
Often, it is about 14 dpo when a woman might notice some early pregnancy symptoms, and usually the time is around your first missed menstrual period. Around this time, a blood or urine test can detect the pregnancy. The luteal phase is a period following ovulation and ends about 14 dpo. However, some women can experience a luteal phase that that is shorter than 12 days, which makes fertilization more difficult. It is during this luteal phase that a woman's body is being prepped for pregnancy.
Preparation includes thickening of the uterine lining and peaking of progesterone and estrogen hormone levels. Assuming the egg is fertilized during the luteal phase, the HCG hormone will start to increase and is usually detected in blood and urine pregnancy tests. Even though doctors consider the beginning of pregnancy as the last day of a woman's last period, by the time a woman realizes she is pregnant, she is actually one to two weeks pregnant.
If the corpus luteum, a structure in the fallopian tubes, does not last until 14dpo, but the egg has been fertilized, there may be a miscarriage in the form of a heavier than normal period. This happens due to insufficient progesterone. Think you might be pregnant, but when can you take a pregnant test? Will it be too early? Actually, it's still possible a pregnancy test can give you a positive result as soon as four days past your period due date or seven days after conception.
However, the earlier the test is used, the less accurate it will be. Please Log In or add your name and email to post the comment. Log In. LOG IN. Forgot password? Point 1. Part 1: What Happens After Ovulation?

12 Days Late Negative Pregnancy Test?
I am 16 days past ovulation, period was due 2 days ago on the 14th day past ovulation. I am always like clockwork- 28 days. I am 2 days late yet I still get negative pregnancy tests. My basal temps are up and up- higher than they have ever been. I don't get what is going on! Should I call my doctor? Is it possible to get a late BFP? Answer Question. Read 21 Responses. Follow - 5. My period was due yesterday, I ovulated on the 5th, and had a tiny bit of spotting on the 14th.
But I am still getting a negative pregnancy test. My cycles have been 31 days faithfully for so long. I wonder if I could still be pregnant. Hi, Both of you could be pregnant!Missed period but negative pregnancy test? There are several reasons this may happen.
15 days past ovulation
This can be an emotionally challenging experience. The good news is that most of the time, it'll be resolved in a few days. You'll either get your periodor you'll take another test and discover you are pregnant. A false negative pregnancy test is when the test comes up negative, but you are pregnant.
The most common reason for a false negative is that you took the test too early. Even if your period is late according to your typical cycle, you may have ovulated later this month. It's okay to occasionally have an off cycle. You can't get a positive pregnancy test until a certain set number of days has passed since ovulation which is the time of conception.
If ovulation came later this month, you will need to test later. There are many reasons you might ovulate later than you typically do. Pregnancy tests look for the pregnancy hormone hCG. This hormone increases as the pregnancy progresses. The range of normal for each day varies widely. An early pregnancy test may pick up very low amounts of hCG.
That can only be measured with a blood test. Another common reason for getting a false negative is not having enough hCG in your urine. This may happen if you drank a lot of water, diluting your urine. This may also happen if you took the test later in the day. This is why it's recommended to take a pregnancy test in the morning. A false negative can also happen due to test error. If you wait too long to read the results, you may get a false negative.
That said, false positives are more common with reading a test too late. Make sure you follow the directions of your particular pregnancy test. Read the result in the time window recommended to avoid confusion. For example, if your period is months late, a pregnancy test may come up negative. This is called the variant hook effect.
The molecular structure of hCG changes over the pregnancy. At-home pregnancy tests are intended for early pregnancy.When can you take a pregnancy test? How early will a pregnancy test be accurate? Do you need to wait for a missed period? These are all common questions relating to when to take a pregnancy test and for good reason. While many urine pregnancy tests boast they can predict pregnancy 6 days before a missed period, this is arguably inaccurate.
At best, you can get a positive pregnancy test, albeit often faint and with an early result test, 3 days after implantation. Day of implantation: 0. The most sensitive over-the-counter test First Response Early Result has been shown to pick up levels of 5. This would make day 3 to 5 when a positive test would be possible.
Fastest timeline: DPO 9 which is quite rare implantation occurs on CD 20, you might be able to get a faint positive on CD 23 or 5 days before a missed period.
More likely timeline DPO 12 : implantation occurs on CD 23, a test might show faintly positive on CD 26, or 2 days before a missed period. But at the slow end of the spectrum DPO 14implantation occurs on CD 26, a positive is possible the day after a missed period.
Remember, these examples would change with cycle length. You can use this formula to determine when to take a pregnancy test at the earliestadd about 2 more days for a safer bet:. Keep in mind that the sensitivity of the test you use and the time it takes for implantation can vary greatly, and pregnancy tests can be expensive. Early testing can also lead to concerns over false positives or negatives. The average DPO for a positive pregnancy test is As you can see from the chart above, even a few days make a huge difference.
This data also correlates with a retroactive look at pregnancy test accuracy studies published in the National Library of Medicine from to Further, the study also found that the majority of home tests were not actually able to detect levels this low, and when they were, home-users often misread the tests squinters.
A level not reached until 12 to 14 days after ovulation around the time of a missed period. The suggestion based on this data was that a test should not be taken earlier than 4 days before a missed period. This likewise confirms the data shown above for hCG levels by days after implantation that suggested day 3 to 5 would be the earliest time frame for a positive test depending on brand.
By ovulation, using the 8 to 10 day average, this would be day 11 to 15, again around the time of a missed period. Given all of this, the day of your missed period is a fairly safe bet, but about 4 days after is more ideal, as percent of women who were indeed pregnant got a positive test at that point over at Fertility Friend and data on hCG rises in pregnancy against test sensitivity would support a highly accurate result as well.
For the most accurate results, aim for 4 days after a missed period or 16 to 19 days after ovulation. Avoid testing any earlier than 4 days before a missed period or 10 DPO. This was so helpful for someone with a shorter cycle! Being a visual person, I loved the charts and equations offered.
Thank you for this very scientific approach to a very confusing timeframe! Hi What is the duration for implantation to take place? And Is HCG produced before of within or after implantation completed? No signs of pregnancy symptoms but were very worried. We had protected sex around May 5 or 6 and it was her ovulation week.
