I'm 38 (DP is 39) and we're ttc with our first child, DP has one child from a previous relationship.
Have bought the Clearblue Fertility Monitor as I think we need all the help we can get, I was on the implant for 6 years, injection before that and pill before that so have no idea how long my cycles are (and they're all over the place at the moment anyway!)
I started testing when it told me to, first day was low and I'm now on my 5th high day... is this normal? Will I get any peak days?
Has anyone else used one? If so, what were your experiences with it?
I've used it for a couple of months (came off pill years ago so no allowances for that) and the first month had textbook two flashing days before my peak. Last month I had five flashing days and only 'caught' my LH surge by testing twice a day for the final couple before getting my peak. I don't think I would have got my static face if I'd stuck with just first morning urine. It gets more accurate the more you use it I've heard. Good luck
Hi bonsgirl, i don't think this is unusual as it takes time to "learn" your cycle. I used the monitor when TTC #1 aged 36 and got high for 18 days and no peak the first cycle I used it. Next cycle I got 3 days of high then 2 peaks and fell pg. Just started using it again for TTC #2. Hope it works for you too!
