Hi all I have used cheap ovulation tests for 6 cycles and haven't fell pregnant. I used clearblue (the smiley ones) this cycle. I got my flashy smile sat, sun, mon, tues and today still no static. This isn't of major concern to me as the static May still come but my problem is I have never ovulated this late. My AF is due next fri and with normal calculations I should of ovulated last Friday (the day before my first flashy smile) as my cycle is a regular 28/29 days (this also was the case when using the cheapie tests) anyone else have problems with these dearer tests? I'm sooo confused

Ive started using the clearblue opk this month and got my static on cd17 after 4 or 5 flashing smiles. I looked it up and some ladies were getting 9 - 10 flashing before getting static. Maybe you ovulate later than you thought which is why you missed your peak when using cheapies. Or is there any chance youve started testing too late and missed it?
I would be concerned if it when from flashing to empty circle without having a static. So keep testing hun.
If you have some cheapy opks left you could maybe use your clearblue on a morning (as instructed) and then use a cheapy on an afternoon, just to be sure you catch your surge x

Still a flashy today. It's never this late. I started using it on cycle day 8. I will keep going this month and see what happens. I had thought the first cycle would be weird as the controller was just getting to know your cycle. I will see what happens x

Nelly I meant to ask how long are your cycles? Was day 17 norm for you?
