Trying to conceive

I've just started using the Clearblue digital dual-hormone OPK and I'm confused. The leaflet with the kit says that it will predict your 4 most fertile days, but so far out of 8 tests I've had 1 "low fertility" result and 7 "high fertility" results. The kit only includes 10 tests for one month, so I only have two tests left and so far no "peak fertility" result. The leaflet covers possible reasons for having only one or no "high fertility" results before the "peak fertility" result, but doesn't say anything about if you get a whole load of "high fertility" results. Has anyone else experienced this? Is this a good thing or a bad thing, or am I reading way too much into it?

I haven't personally had this problem, my problem with them is that, after two 'good' cycles where I had 2 highs and then a peak, I ended up with two more cycles of no highs and just straight to peak.
I vaguely recall seeing something in the leaflet about if you do have a lot of high fertility, then it hasn't been able to accurately work out your fertile days. A quick Google shows me this:
Find the section called : Seen more than 9 High Fertility days ?

Cheers. Looks like I might not have ovulated this month then. That's disappointing. :(

Sometimes these products don't work for all of us - the fertility monitor doesn't work for me - the first month I got all highs and the second and third, I got all lows so I don't use it anymore. If I recall correctly your previous posts, you mentioned an endo condition, I would recommend speaking to your specialist to see what he/she says if these kits would be of any use to you. Also, I took part in a trial for them and have 3 boxes free so can send you one if you want to do 2 more cycles as per the recommendation in the link above?

Yeah, I have endo all around my ovaries, so to be fair even if I have ovulated there could be other issues anyway. I've finally managed to convince my GP to refer me to a specialist in London, so fertility and ttc are top of my list of things to ask once at my appointment.
Thanks for the offer. If you could send me a box that would be fantastic. Shall I pm you my address?

The first time I used these I got highs for 4 days then a peak. The cycle of my BFP I got no highs and it went straight to peak. I found the ic's worked well for me.

Yes, pm me your address and I'll get it sent out tomorrow. I'll flat pack it but will include all the packaging.
