    Default CBFM experiences?

    This is my first cycle using the cbfm and I was hoping to hear from others about their experiences with it? I'm on CD9 and got my first high. I usually O around CD16 going purely on O pains, does a high on CD9 seem too early for a 30 day cycle? Does it seem to change each cycle? Has anyone got high but no peak? Any experiences would be greatly appreciated

    I used mine last month for the first time and got a BFP!

    Mine started showing highs earlier than I'd expected, but turned out to be spot on. I got a peak about 5 days later (and correlation with an OPK and my BBT chart showed this was correct).

    I have heard though that it can sometimes take a couple of cycles for the CBFM to become familiar with your typical cycle (and the range of your estrogen and LH levels) so it knows what to call high and peak. In the meantime, I think it uses average reference ranges. So, if you don't exactly follow the standard profile, it is possible that it won't pinpoint your high and peak periods correctly for the first couple of months. Definitely worth DTD from now until it gives you a low reading, though, because it could well be right.

    Best of luck and happy POAS!

    Congrats on your BFP! That's so awesome for you

    I think I might still BBT and OPK for the first couple of months to be sure. I did hear that PCOS can affect the results but given that my cycles are 29 or 30 days every cycle I reckon I should be OK.

    I had a feeling it might take a while to get used to your cycle. Especially since the first month it doesn't know how long your cycle is going to be so you could end up having to use 20 sticks.

    Thanks heaps for your advice x
