    I think clearblue digi ones can be used at any time and the advanced digis are supposed to be used in the morning? I think!!

    Non flashing circle is low feriltiy, I don't like those tests though as I used them and went from blank to high, no flashing, so no pre-warning. I prefer the normal digi ones as I think they're more reliable xx

    Thanks Lisey.

    I think doing a ovulation test is worse than a pregnancy test. I feel really deflated now. Was hoping to go home DTD and see what happens. But now I don't see the point.... aaaahhhhh

    I will wait a couple of days and see what happens.

    I know, its disappointing. You can get a sudden surge so still worth bding to have them ready just incase :)

    HThe boobs thing could be hormonal. I got positive opk today and boobs feel sore. It all depends how long your cycles are. Mine are between 25-28 days. I start testing cd 9 as I have had a positive on cd10 or 11. Do you have some cheapie opks to use? I use cheap ones until I get a good line, then use digi opk. Saves money that way xx

    If you have 28 day cycle then testing from day 10 is probably fine just to make sure but more likely to get a positive nearer cd13. Always best to test a bit earlier incase.
    Yes, I am ttc...it's been many years, with many obstacles but hoping for some luck. Wishing you luck too xx

    Sometimes my surge is really short and it often seems to happen overnight - so the months I really caught it I was using 3 tests a day! When i use 3 cheapie tests from about 12dpo I seem to catch the surge whereas like the last month when I just tested once or twice a day, the lines got darker but no actual positive!
