@Merelton:  If you afford it, go get your blood drawn.  You may have O’d later than you thought and it’s too early for an OTC test.

@Merelton:  Implantation bleeding isn’t common, but it’s possible that this is what you saw.  If that’s the case, you probably aren’t as far past ovulation as you think, and a test wouldn’t show up positive for at least another couple days.  I’d say, if AF really doesn’t show up full force, test again in a couple days.

Some people have spotting from ovulation as well. So you could just have O’d late this month so AF is delayed.  

Give it at least another 3-4 days and test again.

@Merelton:  What SadieBee said. If you aren’t as far along as you thought, it could be implantation and you are in fact pregnant. If you’re pretty sure that you are within that 13-15DPO range, then that is really late to implant, and I believe they say about 80% of late implanters end up having a chemical pregnancy. Assuming you are TTC, hopefully you are off in your calculations, but you’ll have to wait another day or two for a positive to show up. If you’re sure about your dates, then maybe getting your blood drawn is the best idea. GL, I hope it all works out for the best!

If you don’t chart, how do you know when you ovulated?

You can have implantation bleeding, so maybe you just ovulated later than you thought.  If it just implanted, I would imagine it takes a few days for enough hcg to show up for a test.  I would just test again in 3-4 days.

@Merelton:  Ok, just from what I’ve heard though (never used them)…OPKs are not 100% reliable.  Some people will get a positive OPK and not ovulate.  So without charting it’s still possible you ovulated later!

@Merelton:  I got a frer squinter at 12 and 14 dpo didn’t get a positive digi until maybe 15 or 16 dpo (I normally have 12 day lp’s so I knew I was pg… or at least I was pretty damn sure I was) also do you have a list of your temperatures for this cycle? (you said you take your temps) I would wait a few more days and test. if you still don’t have af.. and still have a bfn I guess it wouldn’t hurt to call the doc and explain what’s going on.

I’d get a blood draw done! There are have been pregnant Bees who didn’t get BFPs until they were 2 months or more pregnant!

It’s still possible that you’re pregnant – but the first day of my cycle generally begins with a high temp (i.e., it was over 98 this month), then plummets the day after AF starts. But, if this isn’t usual for you, who knows? Good luck!

I got BFNs at 12 and 13 DPO and it took me until 15DPO to get a (very faint) positive, with subesequent tests darker. The day I tested positive, I had slight spotting. Sometimes it takes a bit.

I hope you are still waiting for your BFP… but I had the same thing happen to me this month, first month charting.

My temps kept getting higher and higher and the first day that I had spotting, my temp was the highest it has been. I had started spotting but then it stopped completly for two days. I finally got my period, but I was like “really, you have got to be kidding me, the first time I start tracking and my cycle is NUTS”.

But Here is hoping you just ovulated way later than usual and you will get your BFP soon!!!!!!
