    Default Should I be seeing a darker POAS line?!

    Hi,
    So am 9dp5dt of a good looking frozen blasto (medicated/HRT). Just POAS/HPT - surely the second line should be really dark?!?!
    Whilst it's there (my DH can even see it!), it's quite pale......
    After advice/reasons/comments from others in similar situations please.
    Blood test in 2 days time.
    Thanks.

    What Leutal Phase support have you been taking Luv?? Just Crinone and/or Progesterone Pessaries?? No Pregnyl Boosters??

    If you've only been using Crinone and/or Pessaries, then your line is real and you're pregnant!!! Can you upload a pic of your test?? Did you use a FRER to test with?? (First Response Early Response HPT)???

    I know with my BFP the line didn't get really dark until 16dpo, you're 14dpo. You most probably will find that the line darkens a little when the test dries. Other factors which can influence things are when the embryo implanted plus HCG takes a few days to build up in your system (doubling approx every 48-72 hours in very early pregnancy).

    Here's link that might help. You're 4 weeks exactly today.....

    Thanks for the info.
    I'm on progesterone pesseries (yuck!) and Progynova tablets - both 3 x day.
    Will these medications make a difference?!
    And I used a First Response.
    (unsure how to load up a photo!)

    Yep...the pessaries make your Vjay Jay feel like a deep fat fryer I reckon!!!😂

    Nope...they won't make a difference because they don't contain any HCG like Pregnyl Boosters do so you have a true BFP Luv!!

    Congratulations!!!!👏👏👏👏👏😊👍

    Test again tomorrow morning then Fri morning again with FMU (first morning urine) & you should see your line darkening.

    In saying that...some women throw up a darker test in the afternoons/evening. If you were going to try testing then I advise holding on for at least 4 hrs (but as long as possible) & limiting your liquids so as not to dilute your urine too much.

    Argh! The line from this morning is lighter.
    Far out this ivf gig messes with you! I can't help but feel it's over. I'll try again tmrw morning, but suppose will have to wait till I get my bloods tmrw to be sure.

    For completion and potentially future help for others in their googling...here are my results:
    11dp5dt
    POAS - this morning with FMU...positive but light line
    Beta - 22.
    Apparently my FS look for over 200 at this stage.
    Have been told to stop meds (Progynova & Endometrim Pesseries) and wait for period and start another HRT again.
    This bl00dy IVF gig is a tough one.
