    Default Ovulation tests?

    This is my first month using ovulation tests and they're doing my head in! I started testing as per the instructions and I had a few days of nothing (as I'd have expected as I thought I'd ovulate today) but yesterday I had a faint second line but today I had nothing?

    Is this normal? Do I just keep testing until I have two solid/matching lines?

    What tests are you using? I purchased my first lot of ebay and they were great. When they ran out I got more off ebay but they were a different brand and I found the same problem as you - it wasn't clear and didn't seem to work properly. I promptly went back to ebay and bought the same ones I got the first time and again they are working perfectly. Both are internet cheapies.

    I'm using the FR 7 day pregnancy planning kit.

    I did test about an hour later in the day than I had been yesterday ... Would that make a huge difference?

    No - you don't need to test at the same time every day. The reason I use internet cheapies is because the FR planning kit is expensive so you don't want to waste tests. With the internet cheapies I get about 100 test for the cost of a FR kit so I once I see the lines starting to darken I test more often (morning and night) Sometimes I even test 3 times a day to be sure that I don't miss the LH surge. If you only test once a day its quite possible for you to miss the LH surge...

    Ovulation tests did not work for me, i used them for two months as per instructions and never got anything from them. They are not cheap to buy as i dont purchase online.
    When i stoped using them i fell pregnant.

    I've never used them before we started TTC this time around (we've had two ectopics in the last year but fell pregnant the first month we started trying) and I think honestly, I've just become such a POAS addict I just felt like I needed to check everything was going ok and on time if that makes sense?!
