Hi...I've just started using the advance clear blue monitor,this is my first month of using this product,is any one else out there that would like to join, or have any advise on using this product...ie....how many cycles did it take you to conceive...

Hi,
I've just started using it too. Used it for a month in Jan but then took a break as was applying for new jobs so started again this cycle. Just got a peak reading yesterday and so hoping that it will have helped us to time things right...

This is my fifth cycle using it.
I have mixed feelings with it. It's really helpful in pinpointing the most fertile period but it means adding pressure to those few days. Have ended up having arguments in the last few cycles with DP because I went a little bit obsessed.

I'm now on my second month ,bfn last month but did get a peak,yipppeeee
I'm now on day 2 and have to test on day 6 so fingers crossed.

Ruthie.....I noticed that we were bedding at the wrong time,so hopefully this will get us on the right track

Gakay....why do you have mixed feelings. Do you get peaks on yours,I know it's stressful and take away the magic for both partners, me and my partner sat down and had a big discussion before buying the monitor,I said we must have sex on both peak days and maybe skip a day then do it again,then the rest of the month we can do it because we want to,and there is no pressure,I also said to my partner when I get my first peak I will tell you,then I won't repeat it again,he then knows what he has to do for the next few days..lol lol...( this causes no argument ) but I'm like you I live in my own bubble and I'm obsessed to...are you using it this month.

I'm in my second cycle of using it too, we did hit peak days last month but weren't successful.

This month I've totally missed the peak days but ad a long time of high days. No idea what will happen.

I'm trying not to obsess and DP has told me not to tell him at all, so I don't.

Would be interested to read about anyone who has ad success with it tho.

I've used it the last few months but it was stressing me out so think I'm just going to dtd every other day around ov time and try not to get too worked up about smiley faces'

I missed peak this month but as I said previously i had a long time of high days.

I've been using the monitor HPT's as well and got a BFP last Thursday, was shocked as we'd missed peak. Then I got BFN's and a BFP on Monday followed by a BFN today.

AF due Thursday. I don't know what's going on and the unexpected BFP followed by the BFN's is really horrible.

I've just started....on day 20 and no peak yet... sad

Jackster123 Mon 18-May-15 13:59:09

Fuzzy wuzzy.....did you get your bfp

I'm on day 14...on my second peak day,last month my peak day was day 12....

I'm also doing acupuncture before ovulation,and drinking green tea one week before ovulation..,taking baby aspirin and folic acid

Are any of you just using the cb fm and nothing else...

Four legs..have you got your peak yet.?

fourlegstwolegs Mon 18-May-15 16:54:02

No peak and its now day 24 or something - I think its probably safe to say I haven't ovulated this month sad

We used one about 3 years ago. About to give up trying for Dc2, got pregnant first cycle of using the monitor. Bloody brilliant.
Had previously tried ov sticks, IUIx4 with no success. My cycle was irregular and this monitor just seemed to do the trick as I needed to know when I was going to ovulate.

I'm going to be using mine for the first time tomorrow. I've been on birth control pills for 16 years and have no idea what my natural cycle is like so hoping this will help clue me in!

Jackster I had a chemical pregnancy, not sure if I'll even ovulate this cycle so far it's showing as low, I'm still spotting from the CP tho.

Jackster123 Thu 21-May-15 12:14:53

Fuzzy wuzzy...I'm so sorry to hear this,hope you have support around you,your body has gone through alot and maybe trying to re adjust to what has happened.hopefully the spotting will go soon for you,sorry not very good with words,sending hugs

Well...the monitor showed HIGH for about 20 consecutive days (and I got through a whole box of test sticks!) but never peak, so I assumed I hadn't ovulated. But then AF was late, so I did a test, and BPF! I'm happy but cautiously so as very early days....

Jackster123 Mon 25-May-15 19:29:25

Four legs....wow congratulation,very happy for your bfp,just goes to show that you don't have to get a peak....hope I get my bfp this month,only 5 more days to go till the witch arrives

Jackster123 Sat 30-May-15 17:33:29

The witch arrived one day early,this is my second month using the monitor ,bedded on both peak days and the day after,been trying for 3 years,feeling deflated ��
