No Peak

Is it possible to start using the test too early in your cycle? I started on day 8 or 9 and this month (realize now it should have been day 11). I had a blank circle and then a week of flashing smiley faces but no solid smiley face indicating peak. What are the reasons there was no peak?

The number of High Fertility days displayed each cycle is personal to you and may be more or less than 2.  It’s normal for some women to see more than 2 High Fertility days in all or some of their cycles. High Fertility will be displayed when an increase in estrogen is detected. Once High Fertility is displayed, the holder will continue to display High Fertility daily until an LH surge is detected or until tests are missed for 3 consecutive days.   If an LH surge is detected, Peak Fertility will be displayed continually for 48 hours. 

 As you have seen less than 10 High Fertility days we recommend you continue to test each morning for Peak Fertility and remember that you have an increased chance of conceiving on High Fertility days.

Occasionally some women may have an LH surge that is too low for the test to detect, or they may not ovulate during a cycle and therefore won't see Peak Fertility. This isn't unusual and may happen in approximately 8% of cycles. If you don't see Peak Fertility over a number of cycles, we recommend discussing this with your doctor.
