i'm new to this site and decided to turn to you girls for help!!!!!
So, I'm wondering exactly when I ovulated this month....
have been using ovulation kits since the 31st of August but only started seeing a line on the 5th of September...then on the 6th (Friday) the test line was much darker than the control line!!!!!!!!!!! When I tested on the Saturday I had a line but not as dark as the control line...and since then the line has been fading every time I Sometimes cycles are not regular..they range from 26 to 29 days! My husband and I have had sex from the 27(aug) through the 1st(sept) and then once on the 3rd and from the 5th to the 8th of sept!!!!!
So, I'm wondering, did I ovulate in the Friday when I detected the surge or did ovulation occur before?
thank you so much ladies!!!!!!!!

Those tests did my head in to be honest , i think you have covered all aspects of getting it right , to be honest start trying every other day from day you finish ur period until at least 16th of month and it has to happen worked for me ! lol on 2nd month trying and been off pill and having unprotected sex with my husband for 3 years just shows you its all about catching that window of opertunity and i do believe before you actaully ovulate is best to do it not on the day or after the days leading up
Best of luck this month sure you could do a test this time next week !

Thank you so much!!!!!!!
it's just so hard to detect ovulation especially trying to read those tests that show the lines!!!! It might just pick up the clear blue ovulation tests next time! A happy face is more reassuring!!!
Also, is it normal that I'm still getting a line on the test this morning? But it's not as dark as the control line...

Yep i think so , problem with those strip tests its hit or miss if you ask me i rarly got two lines as dark as each other , mostly one was lighter which could mean ur on ur way to ovulate or u have its mad
Just keep on practising and you cant go wrong !
Also check out for your EWCM thats what gave me my indicaion of when i was most fertile !

I don't get EWCM ever!!!!!! I get the usual milky cloudy stuff instead
I'm scheduled to get my period on the 21st but that's if my cycle this month is 29 days...

I would say that you ov'd on 7th sept. If the test line was darker than the control line on the 6th then you detected your LH surge and you're supposed to ov 24-48 hours after the surge, so 7th or 8th. You seemed to have timed everything right though - good luck

But is it normal that I'm still getting a line (that is not darker than the control line) still???

Yeah, apparently you have low levels of LH throughout your cycle. I've been using the opks this month and all of mine (nearly 20) have had two lines, with the test line fainter than the control line!
