So I bought some ovulation sticks. Got loads for cheap. I've done one everyday and don't seem to be ovulating though I feel like I did. Is this common or are they normally quite reliable. Bit worried.

Don't know about ovulation sticks but I always bough pregnancy tests by the 50 on eBay for under a fiver - was always just the insert rather than the plastic casing. Using about ten a month for two years (!!! I know) and they were always correctly negative, except for my three BFPs.

The one time I used them they worked! I got 50 for like £3 or something. I found tracking cervical mucus much more reliable and easier though. I'm now 24 weeks pregnant so it must have worked!

They worked the first month I used them. If I remember correctly, you need to do them at the same time each day and it's best if you pee in a pot and stick it in after a few minutes something to do with temperature but I can't remember what exactly.
Have you just come off the pill/ another hormonal contraception? It might take a few months for your body's natural cycle to settle again.

Thank you. No contraception and have two year old but since having her my cycles have been all over the place. Will do another month of testing and if still no positives will go to dr. Thank you.
