@ames12708:  Sounds like time to POAS again. If you got a neg day before AF, and you still haven’t gotten AF, a hpt should be fairly accurate by now. Although, that being said, a period tracker that tracks when you O doesn’t mean you O when it says you do. They usually default to 2 weeks after the start of AF, and that may or may not be accurate. The only way to tell for sure is to temp, and using OPK helps, too.

It is not unusual to have a cycle of a different length, and many symptoms of being PG are the same as those of your LP of your cycle, especially before you miss a period. Unfortunately, without more info, the only way for you to know is to POAS or go to the DR and have blood test done. None of us can measure the hcg in your body.

@Steinberg:  This.

Unless you’re charting or at least doing OPKs, the “ovulation tracker” is really a complete guess, so it’s very likely that you just ovulated later than the tracker says you did, so your period is going to come a few days later than expected.  If you POAS today, it should be accurate one way or the other.

@ames12708:  I understand.  I’m just saying that the ovulation on a period tracker is a guess, so it could just be delayed a few days.  Or, you could be pregnant.  Unforunately, as many of the TTC women will tell you, pregnancy symptoms are so similar to PMS symptoms that we really can’t tell if we’re pregnant without taking a test.  Even symptoms that are completely new to your body could simply be your period…or they could be pregnancy!  That’s what can be so frustrating about the process.  Hope it works out the way you’d like – good luck!

@ames12708:  I agree with @hardtoconcentrate:  and @Steinberg:! +1 Ladies! 
 What are you basing your ovulation date off? It’s VERY possible you ovulate later than you think. If you’re basing ovulation off the length of your cycles, minus the average 14-day luteal phase, then it could be wrong. Not all women have a regular 14-day LP, some have a 9-day, some have a 17-day. Your LP length doesn’t usually fluctuate either, it stays pretty static. So you could be having perfect 30-day cycles every single month, but have a 9-day LP that would mean you ovulate on CD21, instead of CD16 if you had a 14-day LP. Despite the fact that your LP length doesn’t really change, your ovulation date can change. It can be pushed back because of stress, lack of sleep, improper nutrition, and illness. So it could be either – you COULD be pregnant, or you COULD have just ovulated later than usual because your body pushed it back for some reason. (Like, I have a static 14-day LP length, but I’ve ovulated anywhere from CD18-CD25 before. I know because I chart my BBT). The best way to know for sure is to test when your period is late. Did you test yet?

@ames12708:  The only thing I could say is if af still doesn’t show up in a day or two take a test.  I took 4 before I got my bfp.  I’m usually very regular as well and I tested 2 days after af should have showed up and nothing, and then 2 days later still nothing.  Then 2 more days and there was my bfp.
