Question: 17dpo and CD32??
|Heather81 - Mon Oct 24, 2005 9:27 am|
I should have ovulated on October 7th, which would make me 17 dpo today. I have taken 7 HPT's in the last week, and all of them have been negative, yet I still haven't gotten my period. (The tests sensitivity is 25 mIU)
It's been 32 days since the start of my last cycle. Is it possible that I conceived but don't have enough HCG to register a positive result? If not, what could be causing my cycle to be so late? What do you recommend I do?
Thank you for taking the time to read my questions. I look forward to hearing back from you..

How long are your cyles normally? Are they regular? Did you use OPK to predict ovulation on the 7th?
If it is a 25mUI test, I would think it would register +. You are using first morning urine, right?
Give me a little more info.

Im now on CD 35 and 20dpo. Im going by BBT as far as ovulation (I now have a constant 98.1).
Normally my cycles are 28-29 days (give or take). I've taken 9 HPT's now and all are negative. I've used dollar tree brand as well as First Response. I've tested with morning urine and in the middle of the day.
I found an article on the cbsnews.com website and it says " In 10 percent of pregnant women, the embryo does not implant until after the first day of a missed period (and again, hCG is not produced until the embryo implants in the uterine wall)." If this is true, then maybe that's what is happening. I should have started my cycle 6 days ago.
I haven't changed my eating habits. Im not under unusual stress, and I don't over exert myself. I can't for the life of me understand what's going on.
I've tried calling several OB/GYN's in my local area, but none of them do blood testing for pregnancy. If im not PG, then I don't know what it could be. I've been told that provera will help bring on my cycle. Is this something you would receommend (even though there are known side effects)?
