Did I take my HPT too soon or is AF just running a little late this month?

This is my 3rd month TTC #1. I had been on birth control for a long time

Clear Blue Digital HPTs aren't as sensitive as say a First Response. It's the difference of 25 and 50 when it comes to levels of HGC. So it could be the test itself.

However, with that said, it can take up to 3-4 months after stopping bc to really regulate your cycle. For me, it took a full 3 months for me to start being able to predict when AF was coming and even with that, my cycle still varied for the remaining 10 months of TTC between 32 and 36.

My advice would be to wait a couple days from your last testing and try like a First Response Early Result with first morning urine and see what you get than. If it's negative, you may just be running late this month. Good Luck!!
