<p>Hi All!  So very frustrated here.  Today is day 32 or 33 of my cycle, not sure how many dpo because I couldn't temp every day this month, but at the very <strong>least</strong> I am 15 dpo.   Last Friday and again yesterday I got a BFN on CBED.  No sign of AF yet, but no pregnancy signs either.  Well, I am fatigued, moody (usually w/PMS I am irritable, but this month I am more weepy), and have sore boobs...but those could be PMS, pregnancy, or side effect of the progesterone supplements I am on!  Are digitals that low on sensitivity?  Or could my luteal phase be artificially lengthened by the progesterone?  I just looked at my past Clomid & progesterone charts and my luteal phase was 12 days every time.  Don't want to get my hopes up, but if I'm not pregnant just want to start a new cycle ya know? </p>

<p>I have seen women get a + on a CBED with as low as 9 beta.  So yes, from what I've seen they are pretty darn sensitive.</p>

<p>I'm sorry!  I hope you get answers soon!  As for the progesterone...they tell me to stop it at 15dpo if no sign of a pregnancy.</p>

<p>My own personal experience, I got a YES+ with FRER on 15dpo in the SAME pee that CBED said NOT PREGNANT.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It took two more days before a CBED said PREGNANT. By then, every other test was dark enough there was no doubt!</p>

<p>They are NOT sensitive. </p>

<p>And I very much WAS pregnant, I had my baby girl in September!</p>

<p>I got a Pregnant on a CBED at 14dpo, and a VERY faint positive on a dollar store test with the same pee. And I mean it was REALLY faint. I had a BFN at 12dpo on the dollar store test. I wish I had tested with the CBED at 12dpo, I'm curious if it would have been BFN or BFP.</p>

<p>Thanks for the input everyone.  I called my RE this morning and they said to stop taking my supplements (my 21 day test was high, but they put me on a small dosage of progesterone just in case).  If AF still doesn't show by the weekend I'll probably test again.  It is all just so frustrating.  All I want for Christmas is a "+"  <span><img alt="redface.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;"></span></p>
