Galaxygirl,
Are you taking any hormone meds by any chance? Or is this perhaps a second hand monitor that you may not have fully reset? Also, I presume you have no PCOS (it can cause lots of highs throughout the month)? Another possibility is that you are, in fact..pregnant..!

I believe the first time you use the monitor you could still ovulate but the monitor may not pick it up because it's getting to know you. I'm scrapping this month as it's first time using the monitor I'm still testing when it asks and having intercourse but not expecting anything to come of it.
yeah we've been doing the same and i have that attitude too lol i live in hope, i was using the cbok last month and i peaked at cd13, that was more bloody acurate.... its costing a fortune all of this..... do you think we may have ovulated and it hasn't picked it up?
sarah xxxxxxxx
I know what you mean about the cost its crazy, in the leaflet that comes with the monitor it says you will only use 10 sticks well good job i bought a pack of 20 because I have used alot more than 10 lol.
Anyway yeah i do think we probably still would have ovulated but when is another question lol. Im on day 24 and it STILL says high and my cycle is generally around 28 days .. I have no idea what this means and what the monitor is doing but hay ho there's always next month *sigh*
Also I dont know about you but I had low when the first few days of using it and then high the rest of the time from about day 8 was that the same with you?
i ive only got 5 sticks left xxx

Hi Sarah,

Yes, in Feb i used quite a few OPKs in the afternoons, to double-check as I was not sure if the monitor would pick up ovulation.. I will do the same today in the afternoon as it is CD13, and tomorrow CD14 if I do not ovulate today. Haven't used OPKs yet this month as I am more trusting of the monitor now.. I actually felt my ovulation (it was quite painful actually, I could hardly walk lol!) late in the evening on CD13.. Had an ultra sound scan a couple of days ago to double-check for any ovarian or uterine abnormalities (cysts, fibroids etc) and no indications of any such abnormalities so am sure that the pain last month must simply have been due to the egg being released and travelling down the fallopian tubes..
I am sorry you have not seen a peak yet! Do you chart and track your basal temperature? I notice a large dip in my basal temperature on the day I ovulate, and then a significant peak on the day after ovulation (to 37 C last month), which is sustained throughout the luteal phase.
I am not TTC this month, just charting and tracking my ovulation (fiancee is simply physically not here for this ovulation period, but is arriving in a few days so it will be a go from the following cycle).

Elise
no i dont chart, i've just ordered somr cheap opks for next month, do you think its poss i have ovulated and the cbfm did not pick it up? thanks hun xxxx

Ohhh well I hope next month I get the same sort of results. Did you get a peak when you first started using it?
I haven't gone back down to low yet just highs from about day 9 now on day 24 so annoying lol.

Sending you lots of baby dust

I thought using the monitor would be sooo easy cd 18 no peak but positives on opks! I'm still high too. Seems like a lot of you ladies are having the same problem! I thought if opk confirmed o then cbfm would go low next couple of days ........ Confused!

yeah i thought exactly the same as you, i am more confused by it than being grateful for buying it. i've now decided to do both next cycle to compare, but people are saying your first month its trying to grasp your cycle??? i'm on cd21 benn high since cd9, the cbopk smiley faced me last month at cd13 its either i didnt ovulate or i did it just didnt pick up on it, yep i'm very confused too.... my cycle is due on cd28.... so i'm still high, doubt i'll peak but thought it would have gone low??? we'll see over the next few days......
