Clearblue Monitor experts - glut of Highs yet no Peak

Hi I'm hoping that some Clearblue Monitor experts can help me with some strange results I'm getting.

I've just started using the monitor this month (2nd cycle after a miscarriage). It started on low and then moved to high. I've had 18 days of High in a row but no Peak. I then started AF early (even got a High after AF had started...) and have now reset it for a new cycle.

Beyond the fact that it was getting exhausting, I am worrying that I'm not ovulating. I've heard the first month results can be a little vague but 18 days seems a lot.

Has anyone had a similar experience? Thanks.

Hi TFLS ive used one for a while, it does sometimes show no peak in the first month when getting to know you,, but with me it did show a peak. however i did have an early mc and the next cycle it showed a peak i got pregnant again from this cycle, but mc again at 12 weeks and since then i have showed no peak just highs!! which im told can happen sometimes after a mc or just naturally (we have some months where we dont) I would keep checking for a couple of months then get checked out if no peak.. iv also read of some women never showing a peak but still fall pregnant. hope this helps. GOOD LUCK xx

bubbalewy thanks for the reply and sorry to hear about your m/cs.

I'd read that you might not show a peak in the first month as it gets to know you - it was just the endless highs that surprised me!

Just started testing again so here's hoping for a more normal cycle.

I just noticed that Clearblue have a helpline so gave them a call. Thought I'd post their answer in case it was of use to anyone else.

Apparently the monitor measures your oestrogen and LH levels. The High is triggered by an increase in oestrogen and the Peak by the LH surge. Once the monitor picks up an increase in oestrogen you get a High reading. If the monitor doesn't then pick up the LH surge (for any reason), it will automatically give High readings for the rest of that cycle.
