    so i had my 2nd IUI on april 21st, i still have not had a period i went in last week for blood work finally and it was a BFN after taking many HPT and all BFN's. i have never missed a period or ever been this late. i really was hoping the 2nd IUI would work since i had 16 follicles at U/S. i guess i need to just stop hoping. its so hard to stay postive when it keeps failing:(

    has anyone ever heard of getting all BFN's but then being pregnant?? i guess im just wishing they are all wrong!

    Hon, I really don't know what to tell you. When you went in for your b/w did your doc give you any direction or reason as to why your THIS late? Have you been having any symptoms?

    hang in there!

    I would definitely go see your doctor again. It is very unusual that AF wouldn't have started yet, particulary if you have had a "hormonally controlled" cycle. This needs to be explored a bit more, in my opinion. While the beta may have been negative, there may be another reason AF hasn't come, and that needs to be addressed. Were you triggered with HCG? If not, then it is possible that you ended up with some cysts or even ovulated later than expected. I would call your clinic and ask for more bw.
    Good Luck!

    hi ladies, well AF showed on sunday:( monday in the afternoon i started to have ALOT of heavy bleeding, like going through 2-3 tampons in a hour and passed a huge clot, so i call the doc and the nurse said to go to the ER. i never have bleeding like this other than my first miscarriage. so i was a little nervous. DH and i went to ER when i got off work, they did a urine test, blood work, and a pelvic exam(YUCK) and we waited for the results and it was just a heavy period. so now i think we may wait a few months and if we do need help again we are going to go see my RE instead of my docs office. thanks for the concern hope all is going smoothly with all of you!

    Hey, sorry I haven't responded I haven't been on here for a while.

    sorry to hear about the heavy AF. That is really scary when you are bleeding THAT heavy. You really want to know what is going on! I am sure since you didn't get a period for so long your body was just REALLY letting it out!

    I am glad you found out what is going on and good luck with your next step!
