Been trying to conceive for over a year. For the past few months I've used clear blue. I usually get signs around ovulation anyway (pain, increased cervical mucous etc). Felt these on Friday and Saturday, clear blue smiley on Saturday night. Negative on Monday but felt these ovulation signs again today so deciced to check and another smiley face?? What is happening?!
We had sex on Friday, Saturday and Sunday but now not sure if we should again today.

To be honest I'm giving up hope. Maybe these two smiley faces are a sign something is wrong? They are from different packs so not a fault batch. The actual lines on the sticks are very faint though (except control line) when i take them out of the machine although I know it says not to go on line strength.

Sorry it is the clear blue digital smiley face I've been using. The ones that are meant to be able to be used without any confusion!

I would dtd tomorrow just in case!

You could have geared up to OV but it didn't happen and then you had a surge later and ov'd the second time.

You can OV twice in a month.

You could have pcos which means your LH is always quite high therefore getting positive OV tests more than once a month.

Would I have other symptoms with pcos? I have never had this experience before! Normally it's only been one positive a month. I only tested again because I felt ovulation type symptoms.
I have a horrid feeling that if I didn't ovulate on Saturday or Sunday as I first thought then we are probably too Late this month.

You'll have swimmers in you from the weekend which should cover you.

Not sure of pcos symptoms, sorry smile

Thank you for your advice. :-)
To be honest I've been more concerned about maybe have endometriosis as I get pain on ovulating and am clearly having trouble conceiving. I'm off to the dr tomorrow to try and get done answers. In my heart I feel I will never get pregnant but that positive mental attitude probably isn't helping me!

Good luck at the docs. I'm in their hands too. Been ttc for 17 months, rubbish isn't it?

Hi, I have pcos and some of the lovely symptoms include....excess weight, excess hair, irregular periods etc etc I think that the cbopk can give you false smiley faces if you have pcos as it detects the lh surge and if you have pcos you have too much lh. It could also be that you didn't leave 4hrs before peeing!

Yes very.
Have you had any luck with dr? I've been waiting for a month to get in with the women's health specialist dr at our surgery. I have a horrid feeling I might be palmed off but might try and cry and see if that spurs then into action!

Thanks for that tilly
I don't think I have any of the other symptoms. The first smiley opk was done first thing which I know some opks say is no good as you get a lh surge then anyway. But clear blue smiley face tests say they can be done whenever, it makes so difference. And I had symptoms! So I've had two lots of symptoms. Argh. I'm going to have to go and have sex again tonight arent I? I don't feel like it. I have a new book on my kindle.

TillyTommyTootToot Tue 08-Jan-13 21:42:17

Yep I think it would be no harm to do it again tonight cos if you don't your head will be wrecked anyway fretting about it! Good luck!

Littlebearlost Tue 08-Jan-13 21:44:12

Thanks, and to you too.
Maybe I can read my kindle at the same time?! grin

Docs have been quite good. We've had OH's spermies tested twice and I've had various blood tests and scans. Going back for the next stage next week. Try to think of it as a step closer to getting your baby

Spermies?! That was autocorrect!!
