    got a saliva ferning device/monitor?

    I have got one and started using it on the first day after AF on this cycle. I'm now CD14. I'm pretty sure I ov'd around day 20 last cycle.

    Nothing has shown up on the ferning microscope yet at all, but I'm stressing a bit now....yesterday, I had LOADS of EWCM in the morning, it was REALLY stretchy (like 4ins) but then it disappeared and went back to creamy/sticky. I had loads of creamy CM again this morning. CM usually dries up for me the day after ov for a few days, then comes back more sticky.

    Anyway, I am worrying a bit that I may have missed ov and it won't be covered as we didn't BD around then - but that doesnt make sense with the negative ferning results.

    Should I be trusting the ferning device?

    Any advice/opinions welcome......... :?

    I've not got one either so can't really advise but the bit of EWCM could just be the start of it. I tend to get two types of CM in the first couple of days and then it changes to totally EWCM after a day or so then it dries up completely when I OV so keep testing on the ferning thing because you might not have OV'd yet

    I'm sure I've seen someone say they've got one too but for the life of me I can't remember who is was.... sorry.

    I think most of us do either OPK's or temps, or both :oops:

    Hi chocolatemunky

    I have bought one of the saliva testing devices but only had it a week and I am on CD7 so not expecting to ovulate for a few days. I am going to start using it from tomorrow though so I hopefully I will have the chance to see any changes. I read somewhere on here too that somebody got their BFP first month of using it so maybe you have just tried a bit too early.

    With mine it recommends first morning saliva before having a drink or brushing your teeth.

    Good luck and keep us updated

    you know what? I'd rather obsessively check my cp than examine my saliva before brushing my teeth :wink:

    never used one sorry - so no advice. But I know they're commonly used by donor recepients so must be pretty reliable :D
