Re: 3rd BFN on a row .... I just can't believe it.

I think it is too early also. I didn't get a positive until 7dp5dt and it was super, super light. I had a beta that day and the number was 34. I think you need to give it at least a couple more days. Good luck to you!
Plans A and B (several failures and one success mentioned)

A. At 11dpo it is too early to know if you're pregnant or not. Test again in 2 days and then you PROBABLY can know. (But please still go for the blood work!)
(I did a beta at 12dpo and it was less than 5. THAT was my success.)
B. Unfortunately, it is possible to develop immune issues after having success in the past. And it's possible for immune issues to get better and worse over time, so having had one successful pregnancy doesn't necessarily mean you aren't having immune problems. Is it possible for you to get checked out by a reproductive immunologist IF THIS TRY IS NOT SUCCESSFUL? (I hope you won't need to do this.) I think when you've used 3 different donors and the cycles looked OK but there was no pregnancy, it's time.
Or C, it is possible that the embryos were not good quality (pg)

it is hard to tell without CGH testing them, but how did they look from visual grading? Does the clinic have good success rates?
I went through something very similar after having my first child, and switched clinics because I was sick of the BFNs (but took the same donor with me). A better clinic/lab made a world of difference and I got pg immediately. I had been through all kinds of immune testing and treatments when I was with the first clinic thinking the problem was me. With the 2nd clinic I did not do any immune treatments. The embryo quality was much better which I believe made the difference. My first clinic was obviously capable of producing a good embryo for me (evidenced by my first child) but could not do it consistently.
I agree, thesameboat. It's reasonable to consider it might be an issue (success ment.)

I had the opposite experience as the above poster. I stayed with the same clinic & the same donor, & I finally had success after 2 prior failures with perfect cycles. (I also had a previous failure at a different clinic with a different donor.)
While there is no way to know for sure, it's reasonable to consider it might be an issue at this point.
