How common is this?

We started TTCing last month. I had a clear positive OPK, we BDd during optimum times.

After 2 days testing (9dpo and 10dpo) of stark white Wondfo tests (the internet cheapies from Amazon) I got a maybe there is a line on TWO different Wondfo tests. I also got a maybe if you hold it up to the light there is a line on a FRER the same day. This was with not FMU, but holding for 4-5 hours. This was 11dpo.

The next morning I expected the FRER to be darker, but to my dismay it was stark white. My period stared two days later (14dpo)

What are the odds I got evaps on THREE different tests? Especially since the Wondfos up to this point had been so white they were hard to even look for a line?

I know this is why they tell you not to test until AF is late.

Did the eggie fertilize, but just couldn't get a good implantation?

I don't have a lot of experience, but I would think it was a chemical pregnancy. I don't think evaps are *that common* unless you have a bad batch, but you did use 2 diff. types of tests. Best of luck to you Smile

I would say it appears to be chemical pregnancy too, which means that the egg implanted but didn't stick. :bighug: I wish you all the best of luck for next cycle Smile

I agree with PP that it was a CP. I'm sorry and I can understand how dissapointing it is... I had one last year.

As far as how common it is - I read somewhere that 50% of pregnancies terminate early. THis is way up from previous estimates primarily because of early pregnancy tests. Women would just assume that they didn't get pregnant when AF arrived on time or a few days late. I remember my mom telling me that her DR would say not to come in for a pregnancy test until she missed 2 periods. Could you imagine not knowing you were pg until you were 8wks? Anyway... it's the double edged sword of testing early and the reason why I'm holding my breath and still temping.

Best of luck to you and I hope you get your BFP and stickey bean soon.
