Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

I'm looking for a little advice.... my husband and I are trying for a baby and I recently bought a clearblue digital ovulation test. I've been testing every day for about 15 days and still haven't got my smiley face to indicate I'm ovulating.
I stopped my depo injection last November and my periods came back this August. I've had a couple of irregular cycles of around 20 days and the most recent was 35 days.
I expected to have ovulated by now and only have a few tests left in my pack. It's started to make me worry that perhaps I'm not ovulating at all??
Any advice would be greatly appreciated xx

Thanks for your replies and sorry to hear of your ectopic pregnancy QueenAsanti.
I'm relived to say the day after I posted my message, I got the smiley face to indicate I was ovulating... at last!
Glad to know it's not just me that was getting confused with the ovulation kits and worrying that I'm not ovulating.
Rubyjavy, that's a shame your GP wasn't very helpful! As QueenAsanti83 said, it's best to test at the same time everyday, I do mine in the morning as my bladder is full and not diluted with any drinks. Perhaps you ovulate later than you thought? I've been having 20 day then 35 day cycles, I started testing on day 6 this month but only ovulated on day 22, so almost ran out and thought it would never arrive!
Although they are expensive, maybe you buy enough sticks to test everyday so you don't miss your smiley positive?
I hope you both get your positives soon. xxx

Sorry Daisysmummy - only just seen this. Did you have good news? I didn't get my positive last month, but got my smiley face today, so am DTD later and keeping my fingers crossed. xx
