View Full Version : No period, no bfp....
10-04-2005, 12:44 AM
To begin with we have been ttc for awhile. I had a d&c in June and have had no luck since then but had regular periods. Now to the current situation. I am two weeks late. No period. Random cramps sometimes during the day. No sore boobies, no real pregnancy signs like I had like time so I dont think I am pregnant and add to that 4 negative tests of 2 different kinds.
Should I just give in and go to the doctor or wait and see if I start? Ive had a few friends tell me its possible Im pregnant and the tests dont show it(i dont know the reality of this) and that I should go for a blood test. I do cramp like I am going to start though and then dont. I have had tons of cm since about the time I was suppose to start. I dont chart but I keep track of some things. Any opinions?

I would probably go to the doctor. This way you can find out for sure if you are PG, and if you aren't you can find out why you aren't having your period.

If you had tons of CM when you thought your period was supposed to start, then you probably O'ed then and you will get your period soon. Is it EWCM?
If you aren't pregnant, then you simply haven't O'ed yet which is why you haven't gotten your period. If you are concerned you can go to the dr for a blood test (to rule out pregnancy or to check progesterone levels to see if you have O'ed). Otherwise you can just wait and see.
I had a D&C in June as well, had a couple of normal periods and then had a really long cycle (o'd really late). My OB/GYN said it's normal after a D&C. Maybe give it another week or so?
My cycle was extended by almost 2 weeks if that helps.

ktsb-Thats really intersting to hear. I am going to try and wait it out about another week. I will probably take some more tests in that time too:p!
tlew-I think it was ewcm and that I hadnt ovulated because now it is pretty much gone. Ill just play the wait game!
Thanks for the advice.
Even better....I got a BFP on the LOOONNNGGGG cycle. Go figure!
;) Hang in There and the best of luck to you!

Will you please post to update. I am in the same sitch you were in. I have no pregnancy symptoms, missed AF, and BFN. But, I'm pretty sure I O'd because I've been temping and have a temp shift.
So what do you all think? I'm 11-12 DPO. My luteal phase has been really short (8-9days) the last few months. I don't know what to think. Can my LP just lengthen like that? Technically, I've *missed* my period, shouldn't a test detect a pregnancy by now--if I am?

TeaEmCue, not necessarily. hCG can take anywhere from a day to 5 days (or longer) after implantation to reach levels testable in your urine. It depends both on when you implanted and how your body metabolizes the hCG. The average +HPT shows up between 13-14DPO. Wait a few days & test again; if it's still BFN, call your dr.

I don't chart or anything (maybe I should start?) but my last period was April 3rd and I usually run about 28 to 29 days. We had an *accident* around the 8th (totally not sure on this at all!!). No period now and no BFP. I am not prone to stress delays. Ideas?

shellslake, thanks for searching :).
Your accident was around 4/8? Were you still bleeding then? While it's theoretically possible to get pg during AF, the chances of it occuring during a regular, 28-29 day cycle are just about nil. If you were no longer bleeding, the chances may be slightly higher, but you're still talking about an *all*-stars-must-be-aligned situation.
It's not unusual to have an annovulatory cycle (when you don't ovulate) every once in a great while, and when you're not used to "oops-es," you hardly notice it at all. Annov cycles are completely unpredictable, but most fall under the category of a little shorter or longer than usual with a regular AF (your body still sheds the lining).
A stress-delay, or delayed ovulation, can also occur relatively randomly, especially in women with very regular cycles. You may go for months under an immense amount of stress without affecting your cycle, then 6 months later experience a little blip on the radar & your cycle is affected.
Point being, a late period with no BFP is not immediate cause for concern. However, if AF doesn't start within about 2 weeks, call your doctor. It will give you peace of mind.
**Regarding charting: every woman on here who is familiar with charting knows it is one of the most important things we have ever, ever in our lives, learned. It's not just about TTC or TTA; you will be amazed at how much you learn about your body, and how much of our bodies' reactions are affected by hormones. The "bible" on the subject is Taking Charge of Your Fertility (http://www.ovusoft.com/), or TCOYF by Toni Weschler. I think the Charting TTA (http://www.constantchatter.com/showthread.php?t=17140) thread has the most comprehensive information on the site regarding cycles and charting.
