Confusing results please help!


After 4 years I thought I had this down but apparently my body hates me (as if I didn’t know that already!)
I’m CD 16, third round of clomid. Took clomid for unexplained fertility although was previously ovulating (generally between cd 14 - 18). Last month annovulatory, first month in at least a year.
Anyway.. I’ve attached pictures of my ovulation tests for the past few days. My issue is yesterday I got a negative read on my clearblue digital, today it is a solid smiley?! The cheap dip test doesn’t look positive yet I don’t think? The ones on this post are today’s, I will put the last few days on below. I’m not really having any ovulation symptoms as such - normally I get pain but I haven’t. I think this cycle may be a bust too? I’m having 21 day bloods done but this is my last cycle on clomid so if there’s no chance of success I don’t want to get my hopes up.
We’ve been bd’ing every other day either way, but I think we should up that now just to be safe?

So these pictures are the clearblue (and inside it) from today, and today’s dip test. In RL I don’t think the dip test looks as positive as it does in the photo!

Here are yesterday’s, Monday’s and Sunday’s. I think Sunday looks quite dark, which makes me wonder if this will be annovulatory as it seems I’m gearing up but not ovulating? So annoying I didn’t temp

I found the ic usually go positive the day after the cb smiley type, thats what used to happen with me anyways. I think your ic looks so close though (actually looks positive to me but i get that sometimes they come across different on photos but that is really dark!) , it doesnt appear to me to be a bust cycle, i think youre on your way to ovulating! On some cycles id get really strong ovulation signs and on others none at all. Id get BD- good luck!

Thank you - the IC has developed more now (over the 10 mins though) and is actually darker than the control now. I just find it weird that yesterday’s clearblue was negative rather than a flashing smiley. Thank you! I’m glad to hear you sometimes don’t get ovulation symptoms as that’s eased my mind a bit! Fingers crossed! I’m using the preseed this month so hopefully that will help too.

I never got on with the cb really but its good to do 2 diff brands for confirmation. Glad the ic has developed to a genuine positive, good luck!
