how many dpo did you get your BFP? — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

how many dpo did you get your BFP?

Dropping by from 3T with a question (that I'm sure you're asked all the time, but I'm a wreck right now so I'm sorry for a repeat)

From your experiences, how many dpo did your BFP show after you POAS? I POAS this morning and it was a BFN. However, AF normally has shown her ugly face by this time. I took my last Ovidrel trigger 2 weeks ago today so I'm 14 days past my trigger and 10 days past my Pregnyl HCG shot.

I guess what I'm wondering is, from your experience or anyone you know, is it still possible that this cycle isn't a complete bust or should I just accept the BFN and prepare for AF and move on?

Re: how many dpo did you get your BFP?

  • I've only ever had this one bfp, and got it the evening of 10dpo. That was the first I tested that cycle and while it was super faint, it was there. I tested first with an internet cheapie then with a FRER. I hope you get your bfp soon!

  • I had a lot of bad cramping and spotting before I tested so I assumed AF was coming. I wasn't even going to test at all, but DH insisted. I was 16/17dpo when I got the BFP.

  • it depends on the brand.  i.e.cheapie walgreens/cvs/target blue dye "5 day early tests" are not as sensitive as frer (first response early result).  here are mine....keeping in mind that i charted and used OPKs with each cycle:

    first pg, 3.5 years ago (clomid 100mg) - positive on frer at 9 dpo, frer. was faint. didnt test earlier. resulted in child.

    second pg, january 2011 (natural)  - implantation spotting at 4 dpo and positive on frer at 5dpo.  yes i was charting and using OPKs, it was really that early.  maybe too early though, something wasnt right, i miscarried at 5 weeks that cycle. 

    third pg (after DOR dx) may/june 2011 (50mg clomid + IUI) - positive on frer 7-8 dpo with frer...was testing out of trigger, trigger faded around 6 dpo then came back..chemical pregnancy.

    fourth pg, july/august (100mg clomid + IUI, 2 mature follies) - positive on frer at 12dpo.  tested out of frer at 8dpo (totally negative).  used cheapie walgreens 5 days early blue line test at 10dpo - negative.  that was the day im positive implantation happened bc i had major cramps and a temp dip.  if i used frer i probably would have seen something.  then 12 dpo- strong + line on the frer. resulted in twins, im almost 20 weeks.

  • I got my (very faint) BFP on 13dpo. I had tested 11 dpo and got a BFN then.

    After 2 1/2 years TTC, 3 IUI's, endo, and a lap, a surprise BFP brought us Alexandra Marie!

  • I tested with FRER the afternoon of 5dp5dt and got a negative and got a faint positive and positive digi on the morning of 6dp5dt.  So that's about 11dpo.

    including an IVF vacation in Costa Rica/Panama,

  • Faint positive at 10 dpo.  My view is always -- you're not out, until AF shows up.

  • Got my BFP on 11dp3dt.  My boobs felt pregnant three days before that, but I was convinced that IVF #4 didn't work, and I didn't POAS till Sunday because I didn't want to ruin my weekend.  I think I was in the minority with experiencing symptoms that early.  I only knew what my boobs were telling me because I had been pregnant for a few weeks once before and had the same sensation.

  • I had a super faint line on an IC at about 9dpo. I tested again at 11dpo and got a very clear line with a FRER. I hope you get your positive soon!

  • My first super squinty (DH thought I was nuts) BFP was at 9 dpo. The definitive BFP was at 10 dpo on a digi.

    When you get your BFP would have some dependency on when implantation occurred. It's still possible to get a BFP late if you implanted late. Not trying to give you false hopes, but late BFP's do happen. Good luck!

  • I got a BFN at 12dpo, and didn't test again until my positive beta at 15dpo.

  • I did a FRER and got my first BFP at 8dp3dt or 11 days out. I have twins on board also. Good Luck!

  • I got a faint BFP on a Dollar Tree test at 5dp5dt, but the same FMU gave me a BFN on a FRER.  The next day, I got a faint BFP on FRER.  Tried a digital at 8dp5dt and got a BFP.  I guess the test you're using might not be sensitive enough.  I'd try again in a day or two.

  • mine was at 13 dpo, which was 14 days after trigger. i didn't let myself test any earlier than that in case of a false positive from the trigger shot.
  • Mine was faint at 11DPO.  But, every pregnancy is different so you should not be comparing these situations to what is going on with you.  I have seen people get very late BFP's so don't lose hope until AF shows.  GL!

  • I didn't test until 16dpo, and got a very clear positive. My beta at 19dpo was 892, so if you go by the doubling rule, I could've gotten a positive as early as maybe 11 or so.

  • I think I tested at 10dp3dt ... so 13dpo?  It was a pretty strong and quick positive.

  • I made the mistake of using a cheapy test on the morning of 12dpo which was a BFN (so was the digital)- I think the cheap test was crap because I used another from that batch after and it was still showing a BFN even though it was supposed to be an ultra sensitive test. 

     Tested again that night with FRER and got a clear BFP...

  • Thanks ladies. I know we are all different, but I wanted to hear some examples from real life...even if you aren't me :) Sounds like I'm probably out for this cycle, but like many of said - it's not over until AF arrives. Hopefully I'll get to move over to this board one day!
