Hi MissLaura84... sounds like the digital clear blue OPK was correct. I used the advanced digital clear blue OPK this month as well. It is supposed to give you your 4 most fertile days. You will get a zero when you are not fertile, then a blinking smiley on your 2 high fertility days and then a permanent steady smiley face on your peak day (this is your ovulation day). You should do the BD on each of these 3 days as well as the day after your peak day. Once you get one peak day reading, you don't test again... unless you get AF and then start the whole process over again next cycle.
Sounds like you just got lucky starting the day that you did so you didn't miss your cycle this month! It measures your estrogen levels to give you your two high days and then your LH levels for the peak day.
You can only ovulate once per cycle so it is perfectly normal that you would get a negative reading for the next 20 or so days after you got a peak reading.
Hope that helps!

My husband and I have only just decided to TTC one week ago today. I decided to buy the clearblue digital ovulation test and his and hers TTC vitamins. I had been off my pill for 3 weeks and so expected to come on soon. Despite this my curiosity got the better of me so I ignored the instructions that came with the test and just started testing each morning. After 2 days of seeing a O, on the 3rd day I saw a flashing smiley face. I was gobsmacked. I told me husband and since we have been trying each night. I had the flashing smiley for 4 days and today had the solid smiley (peak fertility). I I wasn't expecting to be so close to ovulation I also bought some one step tests from amazon anticipation a long road ahead. Today I decided to use one of the one step tests (again out of curiosity) but was upset to see a negative result.

Is the one step test right or the clear blue??? Arghh I am so confused.

Please help if you can x

TTC with questions about ovulation bleeding


Hi Everyone-
My dh and I are TTC #1. We are newlyweds, married 1 1/2 months. I am 31 he is 36. We wanted to TTC right away. I have been charting my cycle for years thinking it would help, turns out it didn't. After watching the calendar, we did not conceive in July.
This cycle, August, I decided to try the cb advanced digital OPK. I started testing on cd8 and got negatives all the way up to cd 17 when I finally go high fertility. Also got high fertility on cd 18 then tested peak fertility today cd 19. So fingers crossed that it works this month! We have BD each day hoping it works.

My concern is that in June I started to bleed during ovulation. This has never happened in my life, then the past three cycles I have had ovulation bleeding. Does anyone have experience with ovulation bleeding? I have been doing tons of research on it and overall it sounds like ovulation bleeding is normal. but my questions are #1 is it normal to have ovulation bleeding start at the age of 30? and #2 i'm worried about how heavy it is. How heavy is too heavy?

I guess every woman is different, but most of what i've read is that it should just be a little spotting and only last 1-2 days. Mine lasts more like 4 days and can get medium heavy. I'm still thinking it's ovulation bleeding because it lines up right on time with my cycle. When I tested on the OPK for high fertility that same day my ovulation bleeding started so they line up exactly. I'm just wondering if the flow is too heavy and therefore means i might not actually be fertile? Even if the OPK says I am?

Thanks ladies for any advice!

Hello Ladies,
I'd love to join in with you guys!

First round of TTC after years of just not falling pregnant.
AF is due on 26th Aug (if my cycles play nicely due to PCOS). Currently in the TWW!
Had first round of clomid this month days 5-9.

Hoping AF doesn't show.

First time ever posting on a forum re anything!

Hi. Can I join?

This is my 1st month ttc baby #2.

I finished my pill on Sunday & AF started today so once I'm off, we'll start trying.

I didn't take my pill very well last month and was convinced I was pregnant but of course, AF showed up. OH & I really want to start trying now. The original plan was December but we can't wait

Not really sure about my cycles because I've been on the pill so just planning to test 4 weeks from now so 13th Sept

Taking the relaxed approach. BD every other day and see what happens. I don't really understand how the whole charting, taking temp etc actually works. I know I'll get obsessive with it if I learn lol

Mine took almost over 4 weeks to come back sweetie. Hang in there it's a horrible waiting game, not knowing what's going on xxx

Hi ladies,

We are ttc after a long break. We started ttc this time last year but nothing. Went to the Dr in April & found out I had a large fibroid tumor. Had it removed in June and now have the okay from the Dr to get back at it I'm taking prenatal, folic acid, metformin, and bromocriptine. We are going to bd every other day starting tomorrow, and I am using opk's. My birthday is this month, and a bfp would be the best gift!
