AF is two days late, but I keep on getting BFNs on tests! I know 2 days isn’t considered super late, but I am very regular – I have had a 28-day cycle every month since I got off of BCP. I’m not sure what to do! Should I just consider this a random missed period and assume I’m on CD3 now? Could I be pregnant? I assume not, it’s hard to argue with 3 BFNs in 24 hours. Has this happened to anyone else? This is so confusing and annoying!

It happened to me once a few months back… I had a 45 day cycle. I tested at day 40, got a BFN and just waited until AF showed up. I didn’t feel pregnant so I didn’t bother wasting more tests. Are you testing with first pee of the morning or after your urine becomes concentrated? There’s still certainly the possibility though and there just isn’t enough of the hormone yet to indicate a positive. The only thing is I wouldn’t assume your on CD 3 though. Could be you just ovulated a little later this month due to stress or what not.

This happened to me a couple of years ago, before DD. I was pretty regular, 28-29 cycles, and then BAM I was TEN DAYS LATE. Then AF arrived. Sometimes your cycles get thrown off for one reason or another, stress, illness, etc. But I have heard of people taking forever to get their BFPs even after day 1 on their missed period 🙂

Somtimes you can just have a longer cycle, you probably ovulated later than normal. No, it’s not CD3. You can’t have CD1 until you have red AF.
If you have unprotected sex you could be pregnant, I’d probably wait another 3-7 days and take another pregnancy test if you don’t get AF by then.

You could be pregnant or you could have ovulated late causing period to delay. Don’t assume missed period and cd 3

Thanks, ladies. It sounds like I’m probably just having a wonky cycle. I haven’t been particularly stressed this month, but we did go on a rock climbing trip in mid-Aug so maybe the adrenaline threw me off?
At what point should I call my OBGYN? 10 days late/a 45 day cycle seems so strange to me!
I’ve been using FMU every day since CD25, SMU a couple of times, random U a couple of times… I have dozens of tests in my drawer and am not shy about peeing on them 🙂

Two days late is nothing! I was 2 weeks late once and I was sure I wasn’t pregnant. It happens.

AF was about 5 days late this cycle & i had three BFN’s! ahhhh it was so sad, but I’m sure its just thrown off, it cant be perfect every month!

I’m right there with you! I have 28-29 day cycles. August was 30-day cycle and I was freaking out. I took two tests and both were negative. I was still waiting for AF this morning and I finally was yelling at myself “will you just decide to be pregnant or not?!” and then I got to work and Aunt flow joined me…

I’m sure that’s what’s happening with me too, and I wish AF would just show up so I can get on with it! As long as she doesn’t, I’m going to hold out hope that I’m actually secretly somehow pregnant, even if all facts point otherwise 🙁 FX for this month!
2 weeks! I will literally lose my mind if AF is two weeks late, she’s 2 days late and I’ve read the entire internet 🙂

After being on birth control for five years and always having a 28 day cycle, I randomly had something like a 57 day cycle. I was going absolutely crazy not knowing if I was pregnant or what was going. But on the 58th day, I started my period right as I should’ve for that month. It can happen, and it causes a lot of unnecessary stress!

I had a 36 day cycle every month getting off bp which is long enough. Then the past two cycles i have been 42 days and 44 days! BFN.. I’m pretty sure it was due to stress for me, but all of this just adds to stess…its a vicous cycle
