    Default Fertility test pic (xp in dysal)

    So I took this first response fertility test today at cd 3. I am pretty sure it is a good result right indicating a good ovarian reserve?? The first line is the test line and it should be lighter than the control line. I wish it were way lighter but it's not. Is that bad? I've never taken one before or had my fsh checked. I had my prog ran last cycle at 7 dpo and it was 10.9 which was good but that doesn't mean that I have a good reserve. My MW isn't concerned about my ovarian reserve since I have 6 kids my youngest being 17 mos plus I had a loss 5 mos ago and I got pg w him while on the pill. She says that she's sure my reserve is fine bc of this. Btw I'm 35. So do you think I should insist she test my fsh based on this test?

    Wow, I took an OPK yesterday at 10dpo and it was white white white. Why did you get a line? LOL

    It's not an OPK it's a FSH test that tests your ovarian reserve. OPKs test LH and I'm sure if I took one it'd be stark white lol at cd 3.

    Sounds like you would like to have it tested, so there's no harm in asking to have it done.

    As you said - you have 6 children, and did get pregnant this year - so I wouldn't be concerned personally.......I know it's hard to be patient, but really, even at 35, you shouldn't be concerned until it has been 6 months without getting pregnant (at 35 my OB still wanted me to wait a year)

    I completely agree with this! Definitely no harm done to ask to be tested. But I know a BFP is in your future hun!

    If it will give you peace of mind, ask to have it tested. At least that way you'll know.

    About the tests, though... I actually had a really blazing positive not that long ago. I'm 28, have a family history of lateish menopause and have gotten pregnant 4 times on the first try each time, including a few cycles after the test. I only took the test because it had come free with some FRER. I finally figured out it was because I was BFing and apparently that can mess with the test. Apparently they aren't entirely trustworthy.
    big boy 12.8.07 @ 39+2 7lbs 8oz, 20.5" BFed for 13 months
    middle boy 8.12.09 @ 39+4 7lbs 9oz, 21" BFed for 13.5 months
    little boy 4.26.11 @ 38+4 6lbs 14oz, 19.5" BFed until 26mo and again 30-37mo
    baby boy 10.25.13 @ 41+0 8lbs 15oz, 21.5"
    8.16.12 & 12.16.12

    TTA, but would welcome a surprise

    I got the test for free w pg tests as well or I wouldn't have taken one. I was just worried that it looked a little too close to positive I guess. I have anxiety and am medicated for it (and mild OCD) so I tend to worry and obsess more than I should. I am concerned about not being pg yet though in the past it has always been easier for me to conceive. Plus after losing Noah at 14 weeks I feel intense pressure to conceive again and much worry I never will. If this cycle is a bust I will talk about a fsh test with her. I doubt that's my problem.

    Pico I wondered about the reliability of them I hadn't really heard.

    I more then understand the anxiety, I lost my DD at 33 weeks, who we conceived after 26 months ttc with 4 m/c. But over worrying about it will only work against you. I thought getting pregnant again would be very nerve wracking, but it was actually the opposite for me (when it finally happened 15 months later).
    I am coming off a blighted ovum at 9 weeks, but it is the desire for another child that out weighs the anxiety for me

    I have heard very negative things about those tests! I totally wouldn't trust it or go by it. How long have you been trying this time around? I totally understand the anxiety and obsessing though. I do the same.
