I’m not sure what’s going on with my body. It seems like it doesn’t know what to do at this point. Back in December, I had an ectopic pregnancy the day before my 29th birthday. My AF worked like clock work until last month and arrived super early.
My periods last about 3 maybe 4 days. My LMP was April 5th and it came 5 days early than normal. I’ve been doing the OPK and was doing well. I didn’t really check on any symptoms. Although, I’ve noticed that I’ve been flying off the handle at people including my poor fiance. I’ve been stressed about finding a job, dealing with family issues, and doing wedding stuff. I don’t know if this piece of info mattered, but, I believe I have ovulated on my right side, where they took my tube from the ectopic pregnancy.
I have Endometriosis, so, I have extremely painful cramping before my period. I haven’t had any cramping or any symptoms of both AF and pregnancy. Yesterday I took a test and it was negative, and now today I am late. This morning, I woke up feeling wet down there. If I’m late again tomorrow, I will call my doctor because this isn’t normally.
Any idea what it might be? Is it possible that stress is the culprit? Is there something seriously wrong with me? Should I wait to test later in the week?

Do you know when you ovulated? That is the only way to determine if you are late. If you ovulated a few days later than normal, than you would not have gotten your period yet. If you ovulated later, it could be too early to test, or you just wouldn’t have gotten your period yet.

jessiequick88 : You’re probably not 16dpo. OPKs can give you false positives. You mentioned you’re in a high stress time and that can impact your cycle. I’d assume you ovulated late and AF or a BFP will show up late as well.

so i assume you confirmed O based on OPK alone?
LH surge can easily be 2 days before O, fwiw. For me it was not uncommon to ovulate 2 days post +OPK.
I’ve also just.. had a long LP once. Where OPK + temps confirm I ovulated and got to 17DPO before AF arrived. No idea what happened that cycle. Typically my LP is 13 to 15 days long.
So, all in all, I’d assume the BFN means you’re not pregnant, at the moment. Sorry bee–hopefully next cycle.

I used the [email protected] ovulation kit from Amazon, and it is a lot cheaper and easier to use and I got a couple of good readings that were really dark. So, I was confident enough that ovulation was about to happen. I had extreme ovualtion pain on my right side on April 15th. It was pretty bad and I still felt it about a day later. My whole pelvis felt weird and weak with extreme back pain. Then it was gone and there was no spotting whatsoever.
