    Mine is still on low and I'm on CD12 now. Last month, I had 19 days of highs with no peak at all (although this could be because I got up 2 nights running to go to the loo so my FMU wasn't as concentrated and this would have been near ov time). This month, it's been low so far. I'm starting to get seriously worried now.

    I'm pretty sure I did ov last month as I was charting and that indicates I did and I used IC OPKs which were positive, so it was just my CBFM that wasn't showing it.

    So either my CBFM is used to my cycles so is giving me less highs now, I'm not ovulating or my CBFM is broken. Has anyone else had this but still be ov'ing?

    I think I will go to the doctors next cycle if I don't get a peak on it. Flipping MC, it's messed up my cycles completely!!!!

    Did you totally re-set your monitor Susan? someone with more experience with the machine will come along and head you into the right direction.

    As hard as it is, try not to worry x x

    Thanks for posting Mrs Doddy, its really encouraging to hear its not just my monitor that does this. OH was saying yesterday that the poor machine has nothing to compare it too, so i have to chill and at least give it one month to get to gist with my cycle!

    How long have you been using your's? Do you think its making a difference for you? x x

    I came off the pill in Feb and had a 57 day cycle which was hell and the monitor wasn'ty really sure of me and now this month it "appears" to be a bit more normal (well so far lol) only time will tell !!!!

    I think it does help although it is early days - I wouldn't know when I ov without a little help !!!

    I know it's easy for me to say as i've had my peak, but i'm sure it's perfectly normal for the first couple of cycles using CBFM to be a bit random. I read on one of the posts yesterday that a couple of ladies got their :bfp: on months when they didn't even get a peak on CBFM.

    I was back to High today.

    Hi guys
    Pretty eventful couple of hours! My uncles girlfriend has gone into labour 7 weeks early so waiting to hear from him, really hope the little ones ok being so early!!!!
    Yesterday I had a call from the doctors about my smear test I have borderline changes so have to go back for another test in 6 months - not sure what that means in the whole ttc stakes! Not too concerned but just worried it may have some connection to not being able to conceive!
    Anyway a bit of good news I have had my first high on CBFM!!!
    Hope you are all well keep

    Freefalling i agree we shouldn't get stressed about lines and how many highs and lows we get we just need to remember this is our first month! If at first you don't succeed try, try, try again! x x

    Oh i really hope you get good news! Its so hard not to have symptoms, i really wish we could be one of these women who get pregnant and don't think about it till AF doesn't appear!

    With the monitor? do you think if i just stay high i will wee on the sticks indefinitely? I've ordered another box, i have used 15 so far or is 20 the max it will ask for? sorry questions galore x

    Morning ladies!

    I think 20 is the maximum number of sticks it will ask for. I'm on CD22 today. FF has just moved my Ov date to the same day i got my CBFM peak:happydance:

    I'm not sure if i'm having a 2ww now or not. Usually i have about a 27 day cycle and Ov about CD13-15 (so usually have about 2ww). I assume as i've Ov'd later than normal i'll still have a 2ww, and will end up with a longer cycle than normal.

    It's all a mystery to me!

    Btw my CBFM is back to Low today (i had 2 peak days)
