Did you test with first morning urine? It’s more concentrated, so any hormones you are excreting would also be more concentrated.

Also, did you use a First Response Early Result?  Those can detect a much lower level of HCG than blue dye tests can.

@roweboat:  I say go ahead and test with your remaining clear blue easy with first morning urine tomorrow… and if you STILL don’t get a positive or a period, then go out and get the FRER.  They weren’t as expensive as the digital ones, but they are more sensitive and (I think) easier to read than the clear blues. 

Also, UPDATE PLEASE!!  Now I’m invested and I’m nosey, so I need to know if you get a BFP!!

Sweet.  If you just came off BCP, your ovulation could have been delayed while your body regulates.  One of these days you will either get a period or a positive, so just keep peeing! 

Honestly though, if you hit 45 days with no AF/BFP it’s time to see your healthcare provider- some people don’t ovulate regularly, and that’s something you will need to know if you’re TTC.  I charted after I came off BCP just to make sure I ovulated, and that helped a lot.  I have slightly longer cycles and have never ovulated on day 14 ever (more like 18) so it was really helpful to have my temperature chart for reference to see when my fertile window is and when to expect AF without the help of brith control hormones.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to an update tomorrow 🙂  Good luck!

I tested 3 days before I even missed mine with a test from Dollar Tree and got my positive – it was super faint, but it was there – Due 2/10. 🙂

FRER with FMU tomorrow, if you want to test! It’s still possible but unlikely if AF is due tomorrow.
