I have started using the clear blue digital (duel hormone) OPK to accurately work out my cycles.
I am also using the dye sticks but find these less clear.
Anyway I'm already through one packet of cbd and had to buy another as I got 4 days of O (negative result) and since then had 8 days of a flashing smiley face!!!! So my oestrogen has surged but no LH surge, so no ovulation yet. It's getting silly expensive.....
What results have other people had using these? I find it ridiculous you only get 10 sticks in a "one month supply"

What day of your cycle did you start using them? If you have a 28 day cycle then you shouldn't need to start taking them til day 10, so one pack could theoretically last you 2 months.

Hi bunnygurl, thanks for your reply. Since coming off the pill I've been on average 28 days. Started testing cd8, but now on cd20 and ninth flashing smiley this morning.
We have DTD every other day for two weeks but didn't last night as we are tired! Feels like waiting for Christmas and then every day being told 'sorry not today'. Getting disheartened

hi vickster I used cbd opk but I used the one where you get a o or a standard still smiley no flashing smiley I always got my + on cd 11 of a 28 dc perhaps give that 1 a go I've heard a lot of ppl getting confused by the flashing smiley but all the time your bd you should be covered gl to you and nearer the time I always tested twice a day just to be sure I didn't miss it and always got my + around tea time every month x

Thanks pearl. I've got what I think are positives on the dye sticks the last two days, although got a 10th day of flashing smiley this morning, and had cramping on my left side yesterday and this morning. I'm starting to not care about the OPK and just bd every two/three days and enjoy it

OK so after 12 days of flashing smiley I have conceded defeat and given up with these for this cycle. I am 99% sure I O'd 4 days ago but I don't know why this opk didn't pick it up. Reread the instructions and it says in 8% of women they get 10+ days of flashing smiley and to stop testing as it hasn't picked up the LH surge.
I have another pack so will try again next month along with dye stick opks and see what happens.

Hi perry83 did they work for you? I just started using them now . I came off the pill half way through a pack and had breakthrough last Saturday so in doing them every day first thing in the morning now as my cycle might be out of wack.
