BFN with HPT....so sad!!!

Well this morning at 9dp5dt or 14 days since ER, I got a BFN on a First Response Early Detection test. As much as I knew I shouldn't get my hopes up too much, I'm shocked! Especially after Dr. Potter gave me a 70% chance at pregnancy and started to wish me good luck and then said "you actually don't even need luck." I don't have my beta until Friday, but it's so depressing going into it and spending $300 to get a result that I'm already quite sure of. I feel so down that if I couldn't get pregnant with 2 grade A Hatching Blasts from a 5 day transfer, what will it take for me to get pregnant? I'm sorry for being such a downer, but after making the PGD decision, and things playing out like they did, I really felt this was meant to be.

Melissa-


I'm not quite sure what 9dp5dt means, but I think it means that it's been only 9 days since your transfer.

Melissa,

You are still in the game. Don't give up yet! You could still see a positive. I swear those pee sticks can make any women crazy. Hang in there!

You're right Alison. Egg retrieval is treated as ovulation since that is the day the sperm fertilize the egg. Then they say implantation occurs sometime in the 3 days following a 5 day transfer. So I would think there would be more than enough Hcg floating around in my system for a sensitive HPT. I know HRC is adamant to not test with HPT's before beta bloodwork, that there have been many women that have cried there eyes out after seeing a BFN on HPT to only find a BFP on bloodwork. But you all know the temptations of POAS. I'll never do it again in an IVF cycle though! I've learned that this misery is not worth it.

To answer your question, I will cycle one more time as we purchased the 2 cycle plan for $7900, and my husband had a vial frozen at MS so that he wouldn't have to come out again. I'm not sure what kind of chance I'd have with frozen 84% sort sperm. Hopefully, I would respond better and thus have better odds for PGD. I think you have to wait at least 2 months from your last retrieval to do an IVF cycle again at HRC. I'll just have to take it one step at a time. As far as the beta test being covered, no, you still fall under MS/HRC's care for the first 10 weeks of your pregnancy and that of course is run with a diagnosis code of infertility. Anything related to this procedure, the lab orders are from HRC, and almost all insurances (including mine) do not cover infertility. If you are indeed pregnant, you are responsible for all ultrasounds and bloodwork that fall in the 10 weeks you are under their care. After you are released to your OB, things are covered by insurance under regular pre-natal benefits. Also, I'm not sure that my period will show as long as I'm on progesterone? Anyone know?

Thanks, Melissa

Melissa,


For some reason a lot of IVF'ers tend to test + later then you would think!! I'm not sure why it is, but it tends to be the trend here. Don't give up yet, and If I'm wrong about testing late please speak up ladies and let me know!!

Melissa:

I have been in your exact position. <> to you. This is such a stressful time. Gosh, you bring back major memories of what I went through. Mine was a little different, though, in that I only put back one perfect xx hatching blast and the doctor only gave me a 50/50 chance (which is pretty high! At least I thought so).

My beta was on 10dp5dt and I knew it would be negative. My beta came back at 5...so...ugh. Even though I knew it would be - , I still had a silly glimmer of hope and hearing the BFN news stank anyway.

I can totally understand why you'll say you won't POAS next time. It made me totally, utterly insane. I didn't POAS on my 2nd cycle and it wasn't nearly as crazy.

I would say, at 9dp5dt, if you're still getting a negative...to brace yourself for that BFN. But don't give up all hope. It could still be positive. My beta on my positive cycle was around a 60 at 11dp3dt (which would be at the same day you're at today)...which would only be picked up by a fairly sensitive pg. test. AND I was pg. with twins (later lost one) AND they say 5dt betas are usually lower than 3dt betas. So there's still hope hon. Hang in there. You'll know for sure in the next couple of days.

Another beta story: A board friend of mine's beta was 32 at 12dp3dt (undetectable when she POAS). She went on to have a beautiful MS/IVF baby girl.

Hugs. Keep us posted.

Melissa,
I'm feeling your heartache. I POAS with my first many mornings, I knew it didn't work. I couldn't understand why, two perfect 5d blasts and my fertility, it didn't make sense. My beta was 3 which is a negative. All it means is we don't have a leg up on infertility patients and we fall into the unlucky 40% with BFN's. Of course I wouldnt' count yourself out yet, most likely just not twins. Your story was inspiring even if it doesn't end in a BFP. But the second time worked for me, so as horrible as you are feeling there is always hope. Let us know how the beta is.

Not to give you false hope, but five day transfers tend to have lower HcG levels than 'normal' pgs, IUI pgs or 3dt pgs.....it isn't over until the beta is taken. Hope it is positive for you. Did you get my email, btw?

Hang in there! As everyone has said, it ain't over til it's over. You may be surprised. As a fellow POAS addict, I know how stressful and disappointing those single lines can be. Just try to stay busy the next few days!

Good Luck!

Lynn
