    I WOULD START TESTING AT CD08 BECAUSE YOU MIGHT OVULATE EARLY AND WILL BE ABLE TO DETECT IT SO YOU DONT MISS...AND I WOULD :sex: WHEN YOU GET THE POSITIVE THE DAY BEFORE AND AFTER

    Yes the line gets darker and darker and youll be able to see when your about to ovulate by starting about a week early or so...and then go from there

    I think that the first few months are a lot about information gathering. So, you'll use the test strips and pinpoint your ovulation, and then you'll have a better idea next month so you can BD before and around ovulation.

    I used the cheapy internet test strips this month and never got a positive, but I know that I ovulated as I had symptoms and then two weeks later AF showed up. I think that I drink too much water and I also wasn't testing at the same time everyday, so I might have missed my surge. They can be tricksy things!

    Luck! xx
