21 days & Neg HPT

Okay - I am lost. Has anyone else experienced this? Have used both Early Response and ClearBlue Easy HPT w/ NEG results. My past charts are like clockwork - never late. 37 yrs old, Hypothyroid and PCOS w/ meds (levo and metformin).

Hello Tate,

I felt frustrated and dishearted when my LP last 18 - 19 days with 10 BFNs.  Are you having any symptoms?

I would agree a doctor visit might be necessary, but be prepared for them not to know any more than you do.  In my experience, charting still isn't as understood as I think it ought to be.

With my chart, there was at least a plausible explanation: I ovulated later and LP was only 14 days.  But i'm not seeing another possibility with your temps.

I'm sorry that I don't have much help to offer.  I just had to respond to make sure you knew you've been heard.

Good luck!

I would definitely visit the doctor.  The thing is that no matter how long your cycle is, the LP stays same for each woman max 16 days according to what I read.  In other words your ovulation part of the cycle can be any length, but after O you have max 16 days or so to get your period.  Wishing you luck.

I agree w/pp and time to call the doc.  You may be just one of those women who the HPT doesn't pick it up.  I've heard of it happening to some.  They can run a test and give you an idea of what's going on.  GL!

Thank you Ladies for your responses.  I have sent an email to the Dr. to see about a blood test to confirm status.  My cycle has usually been predictable so was very excited.  Still holding on to a ray of hope!!!  When pregnant w/ my daughter I never did a HPT - just the Dr's, so HPT may not be for me. <laugh>
