Chemical pregnancy before IVF? Please help!

Hi ladies,

I am due to start IVF this month and was only waiting for AF

My AF is very regular, and when it was a bit late this month I blamed the nerves of starting IVF

But after 3 days late (even with AF symptoms) I decided to test, just for peace of mind.

It was early morning, and when I looked at it is showed negative. I didn’t wait the 5 minutes recommend to check again because I was expecting it to be negative anyway.

My period started a few hours later and I was even happy about it.

When I found my pregnancy test in my drawer later I picked it to throw it away and I noticed what seems to be a very faint line... can anyone else see it?

Can it be true?

Last month I started on aspirin and went gluten free, can that be related?

Should I mention to my clinic? I don’t want them to cancel my cycle because of this...

I am so confused...

Can you get a digital clear blue??

I went gluten free too and got a BFP after failed IVF....

Maybe I should have re-tested, but as I have full AF now, maybe too late ... 😕

I didn’t know either... it’s ok, it gives closure to this subject instead of making me think about it over and over.

Thank you for your concern and kind words xxx

I would take another test asap hun in case it is an evap line? As I know your not suppose to read them after the 5 or 10 minute mark depending on the test. Never took one of those tests before tho maybe some other ladies can shed some light xxx

Maybe you are right... I read hours after. I have full period now, so no point to re-test I think...

Thank you 😊

Thanks!! 😘😘

Sorry, it looks like an evaporation line. Anything over five minutes can be discounted as a reliable result anyway. Good luck with your ivf 🍀 xx

It’s ok, In fact that relieves me as I was starting to stress about this, and all I need is to concentrate on the IVF right now.

Good luck for you too, I’ve been following your updates and wish you all the seccess xxx

If you are in any doubt re test first thing tomorrow with a clearblue digital test; it will spell it out & no confusing lines. If it’s a negative I’d carry on with your IVF. Good luck xoxo

Yes, I find it so cruel sometimes... and it can really mess with a person’s emotions mainly just before Ivf...
