    i'm soooooooo fustrated - got home tonight super excited about getting to grips with my new clearblue monitor - only to find out that it hadn't actually been delivered. Arggggg i'm super annoyed. :growlmad:
    i know i could just 'trick' the monitor and start at cd 5, but i'm a little reluctant to do that. I've got a persona monitor, which is similar, so i'm thinking that i might just use that this cycle, and keep the clearblue for my next cycle. This way i'll be starting on time, and everything will be synced up.

    Stupid Royal Mail :nope:

    oh dear, hopefully it may come tommorow, i tricked my monitor and i still got two peaks on it, programmed at CD5 but was actually CD 6 or 7 of my cycle (can't quite remember now). I planned to reset it this month but did not actually bother. i saw no harm in this as i did not ovulate till cd 23 or there abouts, so even tho the machine was out of synch of my cycle as long as it asks for tests before i get quite far into my cycle (which i believe it will do) then it still works effectively, after all it is detecting hormones and over three months it will get used to you, so tricking it once should be okay (i hope!)... hope some of that made sense LOL

    I have only been using it for a month but I love it and if you chart too you can see its dead on! Very helpful in helping pinpoint ovulation!! And its great because unlike OPKs it will give you a few days notice, bettering your chances! :thumbup:

    ok i am needing some advice here - my clearblue monitor finally came today, and i am currently cd 7. Now i really want to start using it straight away, is this going to be possible or should i really wait until next cycle?????
    I wont be able to press 'm' until tomorrow morning, meaning i wont be starting to test until i'm cd 9 - is this really to late to be thinking of starting :shrug:

    I think you'll be fine if you use it tomorrow...your only 2 days off, it wont matter that much, its not like your a week off you know? Just my opinion :)

    Yeah it will ask for a test till it detects ovulation. I believe it will always ask for ten tests even if you ovulate say 5 day's in for example... i have read on here that people feed it old sticks after they have had their peak as the monitor is programmed that once it has given you a peak it will then give you another peak and a high automatically before reverting back to low (that is what i have read on here). since the sticks are so expensive it kind of makes sense to feed it old sticks after the first peak. I used 20 sticks last month but i have a long cycle Ovulated on CD 23, but it still asked me to use two more sticks to complete the full 20 for the month (hope that makes sense?)
