So im not very good at all any of this! I think my cycle is 39 days? Im counting from start date of af to start of next one right? So according to the ovulation test sheet i should be ovulating now, but the result was negative? Very confused and getting a bit down now =( any advice very greatfull!
As pp said - expect to use many ovulation tests per cycle. I normally start about day 14 (I have 38/39 day cycles too) and test every other day till they start to get darker then everyday till I get a positive. Don’t forget to test in the afternoon not the morning like pregnancy tests require. Good luck
What ovulation sticks are you using? Just the yes/no ones or the rising/peak/no ones? Like the others have said, you need to test on more than one day, start earlier in case you ovulate early and keep testing up to your period in case you ovulate late
I also find, to get a positive I have to drink very little in the hours before the test. Generally you're advised to stay well hydrated for ttc, but if I do I never get a positive. I stopped using them for this reason. Other people don't seem to have this problem though!
