accorn:  Is there any chance you ovulated later this cycle? Are you regular?

accorn:  Agree with PP. Maybe you O’d late? I would wait a week from the due date of your AF to test. If AF doesn’t show, then call your OB/GYN. Especially if that’s not normal for you & you’re concerned. Also… It’s very common for many women to not ovulate during a cycle or 2 within a year.

I’m a POAS-addict, so my vote would be to test every morning until you get a BFP or AF shows up.  If it would be too upsetting to you to see a negative test, then wait a few more days before testing again.

accorn:  As someone who tested at least 6-9 times before getting that positive, I would definitely test after your period is late by a week.  It took me 20 days to get a positive.  But then again I know that’s unusual.

accorn:  In that case, if you are sure you ovulated, maybe wait a few more days an test again if your period hasn’t show up by then. Good luck.

I think it depends what will be worse for you, the possibility of seeing another negative or waiting. For me, I am a need to know person so I would get some dollar store tests and do one every day until my period showed up. But the negative is less disappointing than the not knowing to me.  For some people, the negative would be worse than just waiting a few days.

If it were me I’d test every day, but some people don’t like seeing BFNs. 

If you had a temp spike that’s helpful – how many days is it since you had that? I think raised temps for at least 16 days after ovulation is meant to be a fairly reliable sign of pregnancy (assuming the temp spoke was due to ovulation). 

Good luck!
