I'm posting here because I know many of you are informed in this area. Not actively TTC, but it's a possibility. I'm 43, have never -ever, ever, had a late period and now I'm 5 days late with 2 BFNs (latest one a FRER with FMU.)
I have done a lot of forum searches and have seen it end up both ways as reported late BFPs or anovulatory cycles.
Sadly I'm not charting. But....did have EWCM mid cycle. Had no AF symptoms at all - I usually get sore bbs, spotting and PMS. Nothing at all this month and CM has been creamy, I have weird bloaty cramps almost constantly, lost two lbs but my pants are tight at the belly, wake up with my stomach literally growling but nothing sounds good to eat.
I dread calling my obgyn for a blood test because the copayment is high, but how long should I continue to do home tests?
Thanks for any insight, and best wishes and much, much luck to all of you TTC!!
