Luteal Phase?

Leah25Brooke2 posted:
I've been tracking my cycles, and after I O, I start my period 10 days later. Im 11 DPO, and no signs of AF. When will a test be accurate? Do I still have to wait until 14 DPO or can I test sooner? Isn't your luteal phase always the same? Is there hope?

I would wait until 14 DPO. That's what those tests are intended for, so results right now may not be accurate. Luteal phases can vary a little from month to month, by a couple of days.

I hardly even think about it anymore. I mentioned in another post I literally FORGOT to test this month. Oops.

Goodness! I wish I could be more like that! I test obsessively... wish I could be reimbursed for all the tests I've bought. I broke down and tested today, BFN on 12 DPO. So I'm sure I'm not pregnant, and I've been having cramps off and on.. so now I'm just wanting AF to show up so I can try the clomid!

I use to test all the time, but i do not anymore, because if all the BFN i've seen. I also had a lot of cramps this month, but i said to myself do not test until 15DPO, which was today. And of course AF showed up yesterday.
Anyway you still have some hope, you may have your BFP. As MAra said, wait and test again on 14 DPO, if AF doesn't show. Good luck.

Leah25Brooke2 replied to roxypam's response:
I think there may still be some hope, seeing as how tests aren't really that accurate 12 DPO. The longest luteal phase I've had in the last year after a definite O, is 12 days - but that was on the Clomid. Each time I've O'd on my own, its been exactly 10 days. So we'll see. The cramping makes me think AF, though. I guess I will just have to wait it out and hope for the best. I'm not getting too excited really because I wasn't really planning anything to happen this month - I was looking forward to next month and the 100 mg of Clomid. So either way, I will be fine.

Roxypam, whats new with you? Are you on a 2ww?

Mara, I know you just got AF. That's such a bummer. You're still doing the Femara, right?

My 2ww was over yesterday with AF. Was a bummer, but i kinda expected it for some reason... Taking a break from Clomid and waiting for my next appointment with the RE.

BFN on 14 DPO. I couldn't wait for 15 DPO. Pathetic. Anyways, I'm going to give it this week for AF to show up on her own, I've been cramping for over a week now, and I rather start AF naturally than use provera. But if AF doesn't come this week, I will call and get provera so I can start the clomid. I'm so just, sorry, pissed, because I can't figure out my cycles. My luteal phase is always 10 days - every time I've O'd on my own. Now I'm on 15 DPO and no AF and a BFN. What gives??

I totally understand how you feel, not being able to figure out your cycles is very frustrating. It happenned to me more than once to be over 20DPO and still no AF and BFN. I agree with giving AF this week to show up, if she doesn't test again and if BFN, go see the doctor so you can start your Clomid.

AF showed up today! 15 DPO. I hate how irregualr my cycles are, nothing is constant at all. But when I took Clomid before, they were very regular. I don't even feel disappointed about AF, because I wasn't even counting on this month, even though since AF was late and I thought there may be a chance, now I'm just excited about starting 100 mg Clomid days 3-7!

Sorry about AF showing up Leah. It is crazy sometimes when it takes time and makes you think there is a chance, and bummer! Well at least as you said you do not feel desappointed makes me feel better. Good luck for this cycle you have been waiting so much about. I pray that the Clomid works for you! Tell us how the journey will be going for you.
