Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 7 months. After my last period I starting using ovulation strips to help with this process. I started the third day after my period ended. I tested everyday and there was either only 1 line, or a very VERY faint second line. I have now started my period. Did I not ovulate (wouldn't I not have a period in that case?) or did I somehow miss my surge? Any insight would be helpful, thank you!!

What time of day did you test? It is possible you missed your surge, its recommended to test between 2-3pm and hold wee for few hours before testing. Some people test morning and afternoon just to be sure they dont miss it.
You can also use clearblue digital test which gives you a smiley face when you ovulate so no second guessing lines. You can track cm (cervical mucus) which gives a good indication of when you are about to ovulate (it becomes clear and stretchy like egg whites). Theres also tracking BBT as this rises at ovulation.
