To test? Or not to test?

Hey ladies. I'm 11 DPO and wondering if I should test tomorrow or wait until later. I've been having cramping, which can happen in early pregnancy or it could be AF. It's probably AF and that's what I'm betting on. Really, I just need some support - because I'm an obsessive tester and it's actually hard for me not to test. Someone please just tell me to wait for AF to show her ugly face instead of wasting the money...

Wait until AF is due! It will only torment you to test early. If you get a BFN you'll be obsessing over whether or not you tested to early. You've waited this long, a couple more days (hopefully) won't kill you.

Yes Leah i also agree with everybody else. Wait until AF is late, and i see you have a test on october 4, it will be just better to wait. Be strong. Good luck.

How was the HSG test? Did it hurt? Did you know the results right away?

Well....guess who showed her ugly face? AF. I'm bummed, but not that shocked. But now I'm on my second round of Clomid 100mg (5th round total) and I'm realizing I'm going to be working night shift over the times I will be Oing. - days 17 and 18 of my cycle (I O'd on day 18 this last month). So I've called the nurse to see if it would be okay to take the Clomid on days 2-6 instead of 3-7 and maybe that would make me O earlier? Any thoughts on that ladies?

Ugh! Bummer!

I've never heard of taking it as early as CD2, but who knows.

I'm sorry about AF. I have heard of a couple people taking it 2-6 but I'm not sure how that affects O. I read threads from other sites where the women have said they took it days 2-6. Good luck though! Let us know what they say!

Thanks guys! I'm actually taking the BFN better than usual! I still feel hopeful that it will eventually work out, in the Lords time.

Leah25Brooke2 replied to roxypam's response:
Dr said there's no benefit to taking it on CD 2. I'm betting this next month is a bust as well, since I will be working night shift the nights around O. I'm hoping to slip one in, (haha) and then maybe we will have a chance

Leah25Brooke2 replied to roxypam's response:
Yeah I'm taking the Clomid and hoping we can make it work. I'm meeting with a dr about changing the med that is making it difficult to get pregnant, I thought that clomid would work to get me pregnant and not have to switch meds, but it's not. It's going to be an ordeal to titrate the med and switch to another, but this is my last round of clomid the dr wants to prescribe so I think I'm just going to try and eliminate whats causing the infertility in the first place.

I think you are doing the right thing, you never know it may work this month. Good luck!
I had another ultrasound today to see the follicles development, the doctor said i'm not quite ready yet. I have another U/S on monday (Day14) and IUI Wednesday (day 16), and the ovidrel in between she said, that will be decided on Monday.
I'm so scarred that i will miss it, i mean monday is already day14, and i usually ovulate that day, wouldn't it be too late. i hope Mrs62610 reads my post and advise, since she has been doing the same combo as i'm doing now. First time for me so i'm a little skeptic. I hope the doctor knows what she is talking about.
