After 7 cycles with no luck, bought a clear blue fertility monitor.
There are three bars to it - first bar means low fertility, 2 bars means high, and 3 means PEAK - DO IT NOW!
I've been 2 bars for 5 days now. which matched with my physical symptoms of ovs, but no peak. Can't help but feel I should have peaked by now. I'm on CD14. Could this be an indication that something is not quite right?
Since I came off low dosage pill in May, my cycles have been very. very regular, and quite short., 23 days. There was one cycle that went awry when I appeared to ovs twice but of course wasn't, so maybe that's it?

No don't worry, the monitor is still getting to know you, I'd still test every day but sometimes in your first cycle it won't show a peak because its still trying to record all the changes iyswim. I used to Dtd on all High and peaks, I think the monitor gave me 4 Hugh's first cycle and 2 peaks and 2nd cycle 2highs and 2 peaks as it knew my cycle better iyswim
I'd just Dtd anywsy

I seem to remember posting similar myself and got peak on day 15, on 26 day cycles. Got bfp first month using CBFM so don't lose hope. As CP says though it's quire normal not to get a peak on first cycle using it x

As others have said, don't expect to get a peak 1st cycle. When I was TTC I got all highs and then the very next cycle I peaked and got my BFP. Keep feeding it sticks this first cycle.

As the others have said, it's still getting to know you, keep going for another couple of cycles.
However, if you don't ever get a peak, it doesn't mean that you're not ovulating. I never got a peak on the CBFM, or a positive opk because my surge is very last minute. So don't panic if you never get a peak x

Thanks ladies. As always, thank you so much for teh advice. Made me feel a lot better and less stressed now I am not seeing a peak! I'm stll on 2 bars of fertility but read it may stay that way until my next AF.
Hopefully 2nd cyycle will be the lucky one for me!
