Trying to Get Pregnant

Clearblue tests. Are they reliable

I am a week passed my period and feel pregnant and this hasn't happened in 3 years since I actually was.but i am a week passed my missed period and I have gotten 2 negative tests (non-digital) has anyone else experienced this also?

Re: Clearblue tests. Are they reliable

  • Lurking is your friend.  Yes, its happened to me because I wasn't pregnant.  If your tests are negative than you aren't pregnant either and its very likely that you ovulated later than you think.  How do you know you are a week late?

    If you period was truly a week late you would be able to turn even the worst hpt by now. 

    Are you temping to confirm ovulation? That's the only way (other than US) to know when you ovulated and when to expect AF.

  • You most likely ovulated later than you think & therefore are not actually late for your period. I would test using a pink dye cheap test like Walmart's 88 cent or the dollar store.

    I've never had a "false negative" digital HPT. If you are truly a week past your LMP & pregnant you will pop on a digital.

    My guess is you missed your fertile window. Do you chart BBT every morning?Use OPK?

  • Yes to everything PP mentioned above.

    Right now, I'm technically almost a week and a half "late" for my period. Because I was temping, I know that I ovulated late, and that is the cause of my delayed period.

  • My cycle is 29 days and I am on 38 days. I track it.
  • I am not asking if I am pregnant. I read some things saying clearblue wasn't that reliable and wanted to see if it was common.

    Your body doesn't follow a calendar.  You're regular until you're not.  The only thing that's actually consistent in your cycle is the length of time between ovulation and your period.  So, if you're getting a negative test, it's likely you ovulated later than usual. Only temping or an ultrasound can confirm ovulation.

    Keep testing until you get a positive test or your period.  If you go 60 days without either, call your doctor.

    What specifically did someone say that was mean?  All I see are people helpfully letting you know that if the test is negative then it's more likely that you aren't pregnant than it being a false negative.  In addition to that they are helpfully explaining why this might be happening to you.

    You ovulated later than you normally do.  This has happened to me once of twice in my life.  It's random.  It can be confusing and kind of sucks.  But it's normal.

  • I was 6 weeks "late" one time and was convinced I was pregnant. I was not. Please take PP's advice to heart, once you start charting/temping it does take a load off your mind when you realize when you ovulate and know exactly when to expect your period.
