    Default Max time from BD to positive test?

    My DH and I are trying for bub #3, and although my period is late there is no positive pregnancy test yet. Because of our work schedules we last BD on 9 September, and I'm thinking there is no way I can be pregnant if I haven't gotten a positive test. My last two bubs had very strong positives a day after a missed period. Anyone had an experience where you had to wait more than 3 weeks for a positive test??

    I would think it's highly unlikely that you're pregnant if the last time you BD was 3 weeks ago. You can get a BFP from around 10DPO, earlier if you're lucky and depending on the test.

    I used to think surely not, but recently I met and witnessed a lady who didn't get a positive until she was 5 weeks pregnant. Even then it was extremely faint! But I don't mean to get your hopes up unnecessarily.
    I would say chances are very low sorry

    How late is your period? Are your cycles usually regular? Any idea when you o'd?

    Yep, sure enough AF arrived yesterday, about a week later than usual. I'm relieved, as it hopefully means everything is returning to normal. I really didn't expect this would be the month for a pregnancy. Crazy-heavy period for me, though. Lots of clots (sorry if TMI). My last period was about three days early and really light, and didn't notice ovulation this month at all. Really hope this isn't a sign of my PCOS getting unstable.
