just thought I would let you all know that clearblue are doing a trial for people TTC.
theres a link on their website if you're interested.
Ive signed up and had a call today. They're sending me a consent form.

thanks for this casgup, I've just signed up so will get a call shortly. What sort of questions did they ask on the call different to what was on the survey? Was there anything else they mentioned? (Assuming you're allowed talk about it?!) I'm just curious!

I've just signed up too. Thanks for this x

It was a very short phone call. She asked similar questions that were online. Such as; are you actively trying to conceive, are you taking any medication to help conception, do you suffer from any condition etc. She sent the form last night and I received it this morning.
She then explained what the test entails, but didn't go into much depth. Basically have to collect urine samples for the next 60 days and keep them in the fridge (??!!!). OH won't be over the moon about this, but needs must!
Got the form this morning which explains all about the test and they want you to keep a diary of intercourse and what the sticks tell you. Then if you do fall pregnant they want samples of urine from that too. They provide stamp addressed envelopes to return the samples. There's a consent form which I've signed and posted. Then they do another telephone interview for about 10 mins and send you the stuff out.
Seems like a lot of work, but in for a penny, in for a pound!!
If others join up, was thinking of setting up another thread so we can all bounce off of one another and keep each other up to date with our progress. What do yous think?

Thanks for that update casgup. I definitely think we should set up a thread if a few of us are doing it

I've done a couple of the clearblue trials previously. I really enjoyed playing about with the non marketed products and you normally get some free hpts and vouchers too. Good luck ladies!

Love the idea of the thread casgup, only saw your response now. Will we do it after they confirm once they receive our consent letters? I believe they may decide not to go ahead with some people after the next interview?

Tayto I think that's a good idea. Let's see how we get on with telephone interviews then we can set up the next thread to keep in touch. Feeling quite excited about it all, but quite daunted with how much we may have to do!
I'm hoping I get a call tomorrow. Sent my letter Monday.

I had a phonecall from the lady yesterday and she's going to send me an email with all the details. I wonder why my contact seems to be different to yours?
06/06/2014 at 08:56
I think it was because I told her I didn't have access to a printer so she said she will post it. I haven't had a phone call again for the other interview yet though.

Mine was the same as yours Hazel. I got a call and she asked the same qs as casgup said and then emailed me the consent form & study instructions/info. Have only just got my consent letter out in the post this morning (H kept forgetting to post it).
06/06/2014 at 12:23
I've got my email with the info so will print it off. I'll have to discuss it with H tonight and see what he says. I think the the opks that used FMU will be a lot better for me, so I hope he doesn't think I'm a mad person for suggesting it!
06/06/2014 at 14:39
Got my call today, they are going to email the stuff over - i guess i better discuss with H also :)

I had my 2nd phone call from the trial lady yesterday afternoon and a rather large box has just been delivered! Wow they're quick. I will have a proper look through it when I get home from work but there is 'help' getting the pee in the pots (sigh of relief) ! Looking forward to getting started and seeing what happens!

Just received my box today. Slightly overwhelming but the commode was the bit that made me laugh!!
Suppose now we just have to wait!
I'm a little surprised that so few of us signed up.

Hi All! Anyone started this yet?
16/06/2014 at 13:32
I signed up but decided against doing it. storing and stuff is just more than I want to do.
16/06/2014 at 19:25
I'm signed up but not expecting the parcel until the 20th. (TMI Alert!) I'm re-thinking it a bit after I took a sample this morning to do my CBFM and, in the blurriness of 6AM and overly tired, some of H's present from last night ended up in there. Guess my aim is really cr@p!

Hi all. I'm due to start sometime next week, so will keep you posted!
Although, I do have very sore boobs and tingly nipples (something I've NEVER had when I'm due on). Not sure if I'm getting overly excited, but read a bit and could be positive signs.
I will see. I'm away at the mo (yes... Being a saddo online by the pool). I plan to do a test as soon as I touch down tomorrow eve.
