    Default Clearblue Advanced Digital Ovulation tests...

    Hi everyone

    We're using these alongside the billings method to TTC a boy, so we need to do 'it' on ovulation day.

    The problem is I'm in CD10 & just got a 'high' reading. My OH isn't home for another 5 sleeps and I'm freaking out. My cycle is normally 30-32 days, which would have been fine.

    Has anyone had 'high' readings for 4+ days? (Please say yes! 😳)

    Going by the billings method though I'm not gearing up to ov yet?

    Anyone else had this?

    I've used Clear Blue Ovulation tracker twice. First cycle I got 5 days of the flashing smiley face before it went to the solid smiley face. The second time it was 4 days of the flashing smiley face before the solid smiley face appeared. I didn't conceive on either of these two cycles though.

    Thanks Happy camper! Do you mind me asking what your normal cycle length is?

    I had a flashing smiley for days and days...can't remember exactly how many but I remember thinking the test was defective eventually I got my solid smiley.

    I got the flashing smiley quite early in my cycle before my Ic opks showed anything so I reckon the clear blue is a lot more sensitive and shows up earlier for longer.

    Good luck! I hope you manage to catch that eggie!

    Thanks Patience86!

    I feel so much better now!

    It's my own fault but I'm pinning hopes on this month. The next few are out due to timing

    I've had 5 days of flashing smiley face (just means an increase in estrogen) before a solid face. And that's with a shortish cycle (26 days) so on a balance of probability with a long cycle you will have 2+ high days before a peak (and then you still have 25-36 hours before ovulation!) good luck!

    Thanks Jan!

    Still flashing smiley as of 5pm, phew. And going by Billings I still think I'm at least 24hrs away from ovulating. Ideally it's 48hrs.

    No other Ovulation symptoms yet, but I think I might be starting to cramp.

    thanks again everyone
