    Default advice needed

    My last period was on the 29th of july. I took my first ovulation test on the 11th on august. It was positive. The test line was clearly darker. The next day was the same. We have continued to take the test to make sure i was ovulating. From the 11th to the19th theywere all positive. Except today. Does anyone know what could cause this?

    I'd try a different brand as the ones you are using sound too sensitive for you

    Some women only have an ovulation positive window of 3-5 days... I know I only have a window of "opportunity" of 3 days. 2 days prior to ovulation and 1 day of ovulation. So how does this ovulation test demonstrate this?
    To me you being only positive for ovulation for that long sounds right? Unless the positive line is showing the follicular phase rather than ovulation?
    Sorry to sound naive... I used the maybe baby and it showed the end of the follicular phase as beginning branching then on the day of ovulation it looked like a tree branch then the next day nothing (for me this was 4 days)...
    There are just so many ovulation tests now, how many days they are supposed to be positive for and what they are meant to be showing could be different for each one as well as sensitivity etc.
