Jackie,<br><br>I am so sorry that you had another -ve hpt, please don't give up hope, it's not over just yet!!!

Hi Beck,<br><br>I too am starting IVF No.2 around 20th Sept, so not too far apart. However, this time I am not down regulating as the protocol I have been put on requires only stimulating drugs - so good for me not having to inject for so long!!!<br><br>Don't worry about doing IVF, it really isn't a...

Hi jackie,<br><br>Glad to hear that you are trying to gain control again!!!!!! I really think that you are testing too early, some women don't get a +HPT until after AF is due, so don't dispair. Also clearblue is used from day of missed period, so I would wait a while (I know, easy for me to say now...
