So I'm sitting here obsessing, lol. Looking at tons of charts on FF, and wondering if women with normally short LPs are those who get those super early BFPs? I've been looking at charts of women who get late BFPs and some of them tested negative until 15-16 (even 19!) DPO. So basically what I am asking is do women with longer LPs tend to get late BFPs??

That's a great question! I'm anxious to hear what everyone thinks. I usually have a long LP and am waiting right now to get either AF or a BFP. Have had negative tests even as recent as today and AF is due 10/1. We shall see!!! :-)

It all comes down to when they implant. There's no way of knowing when that'll happen in most women but the average is 6-7dpo which will give the average woman a BFP at 12dpo. Before 12dpo, you risk that chemical pregnancy finding or a false negative. In any case, shorter tubes has a factor too. My cycles always gave me a 12-14 lp. I found out I was preggo at 14dpo. I wish I had more answers than that but it's all I could find in my fertility books and what not. Good Luck everyone!

I actually read that implantation can occur as late as 12 dpo...which would mean you couldn't get a BFP until at least 15 dpo because it takes at least 3 days after implantation to have enough hormones. So....I guess it makes sense that some people get much later BFPs than others.
