I have pcos and have been using clear blue fertility monitors. Got a flashing smiley on CD 14&15 and static on CD 16. Negative CD18 and now I've tested again on CD20 and it's a static smiley??
I have period type cramps but according to my Flo app I'm not due for another week.
This conception stuff is so complicated!
Help blush

Hey @conceptionisascience, this is my first month of using the Clearblue digital ovulation testing kit aswel. From what I read, once you hit your peak you shouldn't test again until the nxt month, if you didn't conceive that current month. Hope that makes sense. I only joined mumsnet a couple nights ago, but have read lots of threads.
I have read that it's possible that you can still ovulate even if you don't get a peak reading, & only see flashing smiley faces for a few days. It just might mean that you missed your peak, as I heard the window for that can only be 6-12hrs sometimes. So if you are testing just once a day you may have just missed your peak, but doesn't mean that you didn't have one xx

@conceptionisascience I'm still getting used to all the lingo on here aswel & still don't understand some of it. But here's my cycle & results if it helps
Low result CD 13 of testing
High result CD 14, 15 & 16 of testing
Peak result CD 17 of testing
Once I got the peak I didn't test again.
I've also heard/read that it's possible you can ovulate before you get a peak reading.
Don't hold me to that, it's only what I've read.
My cycle says it's 31 days this month, so my period (AF) is due around Tues 28th April x

You can have multiple peaks in a month but from my understanding you won't ovulate until
The final peak. This time ttc I had 4 months of 2&3 peaks and failed to conceive. The 5th month I only had one peak and conceived that month.

I dont have pcos but i have read on multiple posts that ovulation predictor kits are not reliable when you have the condition as it gives you a lot of highs and peaks in the same cycle but doesnt mean you are ovulation and it can be misleading. Are you using any other methods like cm or bbt?

I am now 16 weeks pregnant and every single month that I tracked I had two completely distinct peaks in both temperature and OPKs, a week apart. I kept asking people on here if I was ovulating twice and everyone said that I should count the second peak as my ovulation. I listened to their advice and focused my DTD around the second peak and didn't fall pregnant. I then decided to try DTD immediately after AF ended so that I covered both peaks just in case - we DTD every other day from the day after AF finished for 12 days, and that month I fell pregnant. From my due date now based on baby's measurements I know that I fell pregnant on CD8 (3 days after AF ended) which was on the first peak of my cycle. I really recommend you take the approach I did rather than trusting the official advice that the second peak is your ovulation!

Thanks for all your help.
I know I shouldn't of checked again after I got a positive curiosity got the better of me. My cycles are a bit all over the place.
I'm not tracking temp or anything, I will start.
@bluemoon2468 this is really helpful thank you!
