    Hey there, i have one but this is my first month of using it, so don't really have much advice. I think as long as we make sure we always test when it asks we are doing all we can. I was so excited the other day to see i had moved from low ferility to high, just waiting to peak now, ooh err!! There are so many successful reviews online thou, just a small amount it never worked for so i am hoping (and praying!)

    Good luck x

    Sure thang, we can keep eachother going..... i got my high on day 6 and today is day 10 so hoping i peak soon! Can't happen fast enough, i totally know what you mean about wanting to be ovulating, i was worried, hell i still am! Does being high mean you will def ovulate????

    Even if you get a peak it is not a guarantee that you ovulated. The only sure sign is a temp rise (if you are charting aswell). I find the cbfm useful to know when to start bd'ing. We usually start on the first high and go through until my temps say I have O'd. It's still not an exact science though because last month I had a week of highs before my peaks so we bd'd a lot!! This month I only had 2 highs before I had a peak.

    oh gosh this is SO complicated!! I'm gonna wait to start temping cos i can already sense i am becoming more and more obsessed by this! will try the monitor alone for the first few months.

    Its a science!! Oli x x

    I used the CBFM for one month - only had sex twice because my husband was away - and am sat here typing this with a 3 month old baby fast asleep in my arms. I'm sure the monitor was key to helping us conceive.

    Good luck ladies hope you all get your bfps soon xx

    Still on low so have got all that to come - I'm sure I'll soon be stressing about whether or not I'm going to get peak or not. I'm so paranoid! Trying to remain positive this month!!

    How many highs have you had in total now freefalling? I had 3 highs before my peak days? The maximum I've had is 4. Don't be disheartened though, the first month it's still 'learning' you, and next month it should give you more accurate readings (but hopefully you'll get a :BFP: so no next month!!)

    I'm still on low thinking it might ask me to start testing tomorrow.
    The sticky clear cm is a good sign you sound like your body is gearing up to ovulate! Fx'd!!
    Will keep you updated!
