Still no AF today and it is going on 18DPO! My face hasn't been this clear since I was pregnant with DD. No headaches... no cramps... and CM is there and most of the time non-existant. My BFN was with a Family Dollar Store test compare to e.p.t. I just don't want to do the whole amenorrhea thing and have to go on Provera to kick start it again. I want to do things naturally. Could it be the Vitex holding AF back? Should I stop it cold turkey? If I stop it and my BFN was a false one, would that lead to miscarriage? This is just my first month on Vitex, and I was under the impression it takes a while to build up and actually work, though this cycle was a little different than past ones. I really don't want to spend the money... get another BFN... and start AF the next day... but I haven't had a cycle this long since DD was born. I did go 5 months and no AF prior to conceiving DD... conceived DD before AF returned.<br><br>
Any thought?

I've never had this long of a LP except right after I got off the Ring but knew I was not pregnant since you have to DTD.. If I still get a BFN over the weekend & no AF I am calling the doc on Mon to get a blood draw.

I got my BFN at 12DPO... haven't tested since. I think I'll give AF until Tuesday... if she's a no show, I'll test that morning. This stuff is wearing me out. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Anyone else want to take a guess for me... whose intuitive... kidding. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Seeing as I quit charting and using OPKs this cycle it would be a crap shoot. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I only take Vitex from AF to O and it has moved my O from cd 22 to cd 14 {from 6 day LP to 12 day LP.} Stopping vitex shouldn't harm a pregnancy if you are in fact preggo. In fact the bottle of Vitex I have says not to take it during pregnancy

I spent some time yesterday reading Susun Weed, and that article suggested that vitex could support a - what's the word? precarious?- pregnancy through the first trimester. The general consensus seems to be that it's a slow acting herb, though, so I wouldn't have thought it's causing your current predicament.<br>
IIWY, I'd stop taking the vitex, refuse the provera and wait and see.

Well according to MY calculations I am at 18dpo and still get BFN but if I change my settings in FF it moves me to a different CD 22 and I am then only 10dpo.. could out of O'd later? To me I don't think I did O later but then anything is possible.
