Negative Ovulation Constantly(6 Posts)
I lost my second baby almost a year ago now. Since then I've been trying to learn my cycle for when me and my partner are ready to try again. I've been doing ovulation tests every 3 days or so (more regularly around when I should be ovulating). And I've been doing up to 2 tests a day. I've read that you shouldn't do the tests first thing in the morning so I've been doing one around midday and one later in the evening. Every time I've done one it either has an incedilby faint second line (hardly visible) or its been negative. I've also read that if the second line isn't as strong as the first then it's technically a negative one still. And when ever it's been a faint line I've done tests more regularly to see if I start ovulating, but they turn negative within a day or 2
Does anyone know why this is happening? Has this happened to anyone else? What should I do?
Sorry if this is babbly, I'm just really confused and worried I won't ever get my rainbow 😩
What CD do you start testing. I've been known to ovulate between CD11 and 17, so unless you are testing from CD8 daily, twice a day you may miss it. Also if you temp you would be able to see if you are ovulating
Many tests say to start testing CD11 or later but that's complete bollocks - I regularly start getting high/peak tests around CD9 - I would test in the morning too though as I often do get my peak in the mornings
Once I start to see mine getting darker I test maybe every couple of hours - download a free app like Premom and you can take a photo of your test and it will analyse how dark it is for you - I also find you usually have to wait the full 10 mins for the line to get to its maximum darkness x
I usually start testing from a few days to a week after my period ends, and carry on until I start again
It took more than 2 tests a day for me to catch a positive test. Just while you're trying to establish what's going on I would suggest doing 4 tests a day from CD7, maybe 10am, 2pm, 6pm and 10pm.
It's unusual but I have had positive tests very late in the evening and I know that by the next morning the surge would have dropped off.
Once you get a positive test you can choose to only start testing a couple of days before that cycle day next month. I ovulate on CD 14 or 15 so tended to start testing on CD 11 or 12.
I've spoken to a doctor now and she thinks I have very low ovulation so more tests won't pick it up still. I have to have blood tests and see gyno and probably go on meds
