I promised I'd wait till my bloods on Monday but I caved today at 8DP5DT.

I had 130 of Ovidrel on 12 Feb and 60 on both 16 and 20 Feb.

I'll do another test. Hoping this is from me and not the Ovidrel

This was after I left it for 10 mins or so.

Wonderstruck that first one looks quite convincing (you aren't supposed to read the result after 10 mins) but the ovidrel is tricky and the FRER detect very small amounts of HCG.

A lot of clinics let you test 14dpo (so 9dp5dt) so if I were you I would go tomorrow! Good luck, it's looking good

Unfortunately all you can do is keep testing to see if the line fades out or gets darker. Everything crossed!

Fingers crossed. It's so hard with ovidrel. If the tests get darker over the next couple of days then that's a good sign. All the best. It's about the right darkness for your dpt. (I've been pregnant eight times and probable single handedly kept FRER afloat with the number of tests I did!!). But that blasted ovidrel makes it so hard and FRER are so sensitive.

Gosh we like to drive ourselves insane! I used to test twice a day I was that insane from a couple days post transfer. I was like a mad professor!

Thanks ladies. I knew I'd go insane. I always have Pregnyl or Ovidrel as luteal support.

I'll probably test tomorrow and slowly drive myself insane until Monday...

Today FMU taken about 5 mins after the test was taken. Considering trying a digital as they are less sensitive as I'm worried about the Ovidrel.

The lines look great. Take yourself for a blood test today or tomorrow. Then you can have the "doubling' blood test on Monday

Best of luck

I think today's looks darker. Hope its the real thing for you and not the medication!

Today's is looking darker.  Buy a less sensitive test.  The Coles test is 25IU/ml.  If you're positive on that (say tomorrow AM), then it's very unlikely that it's still ovidrel.  It's looking very hopeful :)

You're a wealth of knowledge.

It's what I did because I was worried about picking up the trigger.

The only way to get an actual indication is to continue testing with the same sticks seeing if the lines get darker or lighter. No single test will tell you if it's residual Ovidrel/Pregnyl or not.

I expect I won't get another chance until bloods on Monday but will update when I do.

Bloods came in at over 600 at 12p5dt today. Thanks for the support. Now the nervous wait for first scan.
