So I'm beginning to lose faith in the cbfm what with giving me a peak when I had suspiciouns of ovulating realiser last cycle and now this; I had a near positive ic opk so I tested with my cb digital and it was neg but I looked at the lines and they wee quite near the same, I left it a few hours and tested with cb digital opk again and got a smiley, I've got classic ovulation pains BUT cbfm missed it I've still got a high on the monitor. Why is it so crap for me?
Mm m I too am beginning to doubt the monitor,
is it cos the monitor picks up on estrogen and the opk sticks pick up on lh surges so maybe ur surges are there but not enough estrogen yet
If that makes any sense
Oh I don't know I'm just so glad I got some digital opks this month to back up!
Now I've ovulated should I Keep testing with cbfm? I feel like I'm wasting sticks but it won't help the monitor to work better next cycle (if needed! ) will it?
I lost track of this thread for a while--been really busy with other life stuff! But still checking my CBFM regularly.
I'm now on CD 31. Started getting highs on CD 10 and never got a peak, so had to reset the monitor a few days ago so I could keep testing. Still just getting highs. But I did get a positive OPK yesterday and I think another one today, and also seeing lots of CM, so I'm really hopeful I am finally ovulating and the monitor just isn't picking it up due to first cycle issues. BDed yesterday and going to again today! Then will be watching my temperatures very closely. Wish me luck! And good luck to all of you!
Good luck Hun! All you can do is as much as possible to coverall bases
I'm still going with the monitor because I'm still not sure I really did ovulate... The last two cycles I assumed I had before I actually did so we stopped BDing too early, so I'm determined not to let that happen again! But if my temps go up in the next couple days, I'll probably stop just to save the money on the test sticks.
Congratulations!!! It good to hear a success story!
No luck for me on my first month of using CBFM. The monitor detected no peaks just lots of highs! For the past 6 months my cycle had been 42-44 days however this month my Cycle was 31 days. My AF is a lot lighter than usual and I'm not experiencing any cramps. I am hoping my cycle is getting back to normal. Fingers crossed I get a BFP this time around
