i'm new to OPKs having previously just relied on guesswork - this worked for DD and also my last pregnancy which ended in a mc in feb.
We've now been ttc for a couple of months with no success post mc so I thought i'd try OPKs to check that I am ovulating when I think I am.... my cycles have been 24/25 days for the last 3 months, and based on ewcm and feeling horny I think I ovulate around CD or 12 (this also roughly ties in with dates from previous two pregnancies).

Soooo, started testing on CD6 as recommended by the packet for my cycle length. Got low fertility until CD10 when I got high fertility as expected (2 days before ovulation). This seemed to tie in with ewcm.
BUT nothing has changed since and for 4 days now I'm still only getting high fertility. I really did expect to get peak a couple of days ago. ewcm has gone now.
Anyone else experience something like this?
Think it could have missed my peak?
Or that I'm not ovulating?? (body still screwy from mc??)
Is it possible to get increasing oestrogen but no LH surge, or do the two go hand-in-hand?
Am I being stupid to panic?? i've only got 2 sticks left now

Thank you!

Sorry for you mc and hope things work out for you.

Nope never got a peak on any kind of ovulation test. I hold no trust in them whatsoever and it sounds like you know your own body well so I'd trust your instincts there.

Hmm interesting to hear that so many other people have had confusing results too. I don't think i'll be using these expensive sticks again next cycle

The fertility specialist I spoke to told me that ov sticks in general won't correctly predict ov for up to a third of women.

I couldnt resist and bought a second pack as they were on offer in boots. Finally got my peak yesterday after 9 days of highs!!!!

9 days! That has to be some king of record.
I'm not going to get them again. I will resist them hopefully

Wow 9!! How long is your average cycle and what day did you peak??
