Wonder if anyone can help with this one - used a Ov test on day 15, which was positive. Seems a little early for me (cycle usually 32 days or so), and had no other signs of ov. Did another Ov test on day 16, which was negative.
Does the LH surge only last one day, so you only get one positive? or might the 1st ov test have given a false positive?
I used them and I too sometimes got 1 day sometimes 2 days. They can pick up an increase of LH as it builds to ovulation (and I believe sometimes on the way down too).
I used them in conjunction with temping as then you can then see more accurately when you ovulate as your temp soars upwards.(FertilityFriend.com is a great site to help with this)
Best to BD frantically whenever you get a + OPK!!
Just too add, Clear Blue smiley OPKS are great. They are really expensive (about £20 for 7) but there are a few of us who got a BFP within a couple of months of trying them.
They are really easy to read as you get a on a positive ovualtion day.
What's a persona monitor? Is it different to the Clear Blue ov tests?
I keep reading that you can't rely on the ov tests, because sometimes they tell you too late that you have ovulated ...? Anyway, will think positively and cross fingers ......
A persona monitor is supposed to be used as a method of contraception. It tells you what days to wee on persona sticks, you put these into the monitor & then gives you either a green day (no risk of p/g) or a red day (risk of p/g).
When TTC you can use it in reverse & do all your BDing on red days
They cost about £60 new plus the cost of sticks every month but you can get them off e-bay for a lot less.
one word of warning on personas. I used my before I had DS1 and it was fine. Then when we started TTC no 2 I re-set it etc and it never found my OV day in 12 months(even though I did everything by the book). I had tests that confirmed I was OVing and indeed had signs of OV but for some reason Persona just never picked it up.
Hi, I used Persona when I conceive DD (2) I found this excellent. Used ovo sticks in may which didn't produce anything - but persona did. I had been on anti-biotics though & may have got my timing wrong cos we didn't conceive that time.
In June used Persona, got pregnant (ovo'd on day 12) BD few days beforehand. Sadly had a miscarriage, followed by ERCP Tuesday
Will be using ovo sticks to see what happens this month, then if nothing, moving back to reliable persona after then period
