6 days flashing smiley..is this normal?

I have a regular 29 day cycle haven't been on and birth control for 3 years- can always sense each month approx. when I'm "O'" and when i'm about to get my period and always on time. This is my first month TTC and I'm on cycle day 18. I've been using the kit where it detects 2 hormones. I've had 6 days straight of flashing smiley face and no static yet. Is this normal? As per the instructions it says I should get flashing smiley right before I "O". I've even been testing 2x per day to make sure I don't miss anything.

Hi Danielle

For a 29 day cycle, we would typically expect ovulation to occur anywhere between day 13 and day 17 but this can vary so we suggest testing for a couple more days until day 19.

The following reasons are why you might not see Peak Fertility in a cycle:

1) The LH surge was too low for the test to detect
2) The LH surge was too short for the test to detect
3) The urine sample used was too dilute (should be in the bladder for at least 4 hours)
4) Tests were inadvertently missed
5) Ovulation didn't occur this cycle (this is normal and happens in approximately 8% of cycles)

If you would like any more information then it might be more beneficial to you if you gave our careline a call at 1-800-321-3279 and mention reference number 1832990A. We're open M-F 8.30am to 5.00pm. Please have your test and packaging to hand.
