Re: I'm freaking out....what does this mean?

Aw, sorry about your bfn

Your LH levels rise just before getting your period. This may be why you had a smile face on the test. If it were me (I'm a POASA) I would get a different brand test, and try that. I'm horrible at giving pee advice....I should be saying try every 48 hours and only in the morning with FMU.....but the POASA in me says, try testing twice a day just in case! LOL!

Re: I'm freaking out....what does this mean?

Someone mentioned earlier that an LH serge happens right before AF arrives and that could be why an opk would test positive so late in my cycle and I've read that in a few other places......but does anyone know if the LH serge before AF would happen 4 days before AF? That's seems like a lot of days to me.

I'm thinking about getting a different brand test, but are any of them as sensitive as frer? I started buying frer because it was supposed to be the best at early detection. That and I've already spent a good deal of $ on pg tests this month. I don't know if it's worth buying more if I'm just grasping at straws.
