Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

2 weeks ago I had the contraceptive implant removed I was curre on my period when it was removed so my periods are a little irregular so I'm not sure when I'm meant to ovulate, I took an ovulation test on Friday and I only had one dark line in the control window, but I've took a test yesterday and today and there's a dark line in the control window but now there is also a faint line in the test window and the instructions on the box say if the test line isn't the same color or darker then the control line then it's negative, is this totally negative or does it mean my ovulating days are due?
any advice would be greatly appreciated

if your line was faint and now getting darker you are building up to ovulation. Where are you in your cycle?
My cycle is 28 days. I start testing on day 9 and my line slowly gets darker days 10 & 11, by 12/13 I get my dark line (as your kit says it has to be as dark or darker than control line) Once it's as dark as control line you will generally ovulate within 12-36 hours and that's it. You will be fertile 4 days b4 your dark test line, on the day you ovulate and at least one to two days after!!
hope this helps you
Dont forget the cheaper opk tests should be tested best between 2-6 pm hold wee for at least two hours and don't drink too much as it dilutes the test!! However clear blue digital ( which I use as well) you can use fmu which can be easier!

I don't know how long my cycle is because with just having the implant out im irregular which I was with the implant in so my cycle would normally last between 30 and 40 days, the test colour didn't look at different from yesterday I've been using proper test and not the little test sticks but they are cheap if that makes sense
Thats the test I took

That's very nearly there I would start baby dancing and keep testing each day!! You are fertile 4 days b4 so get some in their ready x

Hi,my last periods was on 29/06....all my pregnancy test showing negative..and now I am having brown discharge after red spot noted yesterday...what is actually happening to me....
19/08/2015 at 09:48
I think maybe 2 more days that line should be as dark x

Not sure eagerly waiting mummy. I'd of guessed, possibly an early mc had you have had a positive test (only speaking from my own experiences) I've had 3 mc always starting with spotting then normal AF but I always tested positive day of missed period so I knew for sure. Maybe AF just late? Stress,weight gain/ loss too much exercise, illness, medication and certain vitamins all sorts can make us late!! I'm a regular 28 day cycle so im not sure?! Maybe GP visit if it carries on or re test as early pg can cause spotting x hope it sorts itself soon

Thank you missmyangels...so best result is I just wait till the next 29/08 and get the doctors advise.... I hope I am not going through any miscarriage or incomplete pregnancy...
Any idea on how to be sure...

No way of knowing unless you get a positive test first. What test did u use? Superdrug own brand and first response will pick up 10miu where as clear blue blue is 25miu so I would try a sensitive test which would defo pick up a small amount of hcg in your urine. Anything under 5 minutes you aren't classed as pg anything over that I believe you are so the tests that pick up from 10miu are best to know. Also I've had bloods done at hospital to measure hcg which are very accurate results were back in less than 24 hrs. Just depends where u live etc I'm nr London. Hope this helps x

* miu not minutes above corrective text drives me nuts!!

I've just taken another test and the test line is hardly visible today I'm feeling really confused and disappointed cause I don't know what's going on
19/08/2015 at 17:41
Left the test for a little bit longer and this was the final outcome, so confused
19/08/2015 at 19:30
Weird! Do you drink a lot During the day?

Hi Becca I feel like I'm the same as you. my tests don't seem to show me anything. The tests in the photo below start from CD9 up until today which is CD22. I seem to get a darkish line at random stages.
i can't tell what's happening from my temperature chart either.
Hopefully things will sort themselves out for us

I've hardly had anything to drink today, I'm thinking of buying a clear blue one just to see if there's any difference as I've been using a fairly cheap one, I've got the oviva app on my phone and from what I've told it with my irregular periods it says I'm 3 days away from my fertile days but then again it might not be right as my periods were irregular cause I had the implant in

When was the first day of your last period?
I bought a box of clear blue digital ovulation tests to use when my cheapies started showing darker lines but they've only shown in not ovulating too.
they could work better for you though

Clear blue works for me my piccie that I showed always gets me a smiley.bive heard the newer one that that gives you more of a fertile window aren't so good so I stick with original. They are £15 in Asia a very good price

Well the first day of my last period was 29th July, it lasted for 14 days as I was 7 days into my period when I had my implant taken out, since I first had the implant in ive always bled for 14 days but there's always been 30-40 days in between each period, that's why I'm struggling to work out when I'm ovulating as now I've had the implant out my periods should start to get into a regular pattern (I hope)
