Ovulation Kit Advice

Hi all,

I've only been TTC #1 but I think I would like to give ovulation kits a go to see if that helps.

Currently I've tracked three months of cycles which have lasted 31 days, 30 days, then 35 days.

I know many of the ovulation kits come in packs of 10 or 20 so for my first month trying them what kit is best for a beginner? And also, what day of my cycle should I start?

I started on day 10 with a 20 stick kit however I got my smiley face on cd14 hoping for a BFP this month but if not I will just keep using the leftover sticks until that happens. Good luck FX for you smile

I used the cheap strips and tested at 2pm and 10pm and always caught my positive!!
Good luck!!

I should also add my app said my OV date was like CD 18/19 and so was quite out. I only really started day 10 because I have a poas addiction and that's when they were delivered blush

So would you say if I start CD 10 maybe that's a good bet?
I was thinking of ordering the Clearblue Advanced Dual Hormone Digital Ovulation Test Pack?

The CB dual hormone one has worked for me twice. It will tell you in the instructions which day to test on depending on the length of your cycle.

Just remember to use first wee of the day, and only test once a day until you get the flashing smiley, then you can test more often. I have a very regular cycle and used about six sticks each month.

Ahhh I see.

Ok so test once a day until I get the flashing smiley, then test twice or so a day until the solid smiley....then that's it for the month?

Once you get the solid smiley should you try for a few days after that too?
