NO PEAK

My Husband and I had our daughter back in 2016 she will be turning 2 in July and we have decided that we think its time to TTC baby #2. I remembered how much I loved this site and all the love and support I received while TTC Baby #1, so here I am back again lol. Going into it with the mind set that we ideally want to start in July, I started using the Clear Blue Advanced OPK this month just to start tracking my ovulation. My Last period started May 25th, lasted apx 5 days and my cycle is typically 28 days long. Every calculator and appt told me I should ovulate around the 8th of June. Great. So I started taking the OPK's Monday June 4th, got two negatives. On June 6th I got my first blinky face which means high fertility, but not the peak. I have gotten blinky smiley faces for about 5 days now including this morning which puts me at cycle day 17. Im completely freaking because obviously my brain goes to the darkest places like what if im not ovulating? Or what if my ovulation is set to far back so that even if I do get a solid face is it even possible to conceive that late in the cycle? I have one more test stripe to use tomorrow morning but im not sure what I should do after that. Should I keep testing till I get a solid smile? Should I give up and just try again next month? Also I want your opinions on if you think digital OPKs. Have you used them before? Do you prefer them to the cheaper dip stick tests? Are there any other ovulation pin point tracking tools that you are aware of that have worked for you in the past. Truthfully that's what im really looking to do is pin point ovulation. Some might not agree with me on this one and that's okay im not looking for approval but our first child in a girl whom which we love with all our hearts. This time around we would like to try for a boy and ive read that getting as close to ovulation as possible really helps with that. Please keep in mind if at any time we do get pregnant and it is a girl we will be just as grateful if it were a boy. This is just our preference and I don't think it hurts to try. I really appreciate any feed back ladies, thank you!!!

Hi Shannon. 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 Peak Fertility is not detected in a cycle then an excessive number of High Fertility days will be seen.  

If you have already seen 10 or more High Fertility days then we recommend you stop testing for this cycle as it's unlikely you'll go on to see Peak. 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. 

We'd be happy to chat if you'd like to talk through your questions.  Feel free to call us at 1-800-321-3279.  We're open weekdays from 8:30-5:00 ET.

Sorry to jump on this post but i am having trouble posting my own queries...

This is my second month using ClearBlue Advanced Digital, first month I had no issues at all tested as instructed 4 high fertility days (flashing smiley) then a static smiley to show the LH surge. This month it showed flashing smiley as normal and I am now 6 DPO (as suggested on my app) and I'm still getting a flashy smiley face. What does this mean? should I keep testing? 

This is my first time TTC I'm healthy 31yo and my partner is 30 any advice would be greatly appreciated as starting to think I'm may have not ovulated this month?

I bought this kit years ago and it worked before. This new one is not working at all. No positive sign at all in 2 months which I know can't be true because I have been to the doctors and their kit works and shows fertility. Pretty disappointed. What can I do? I cannot post my own comment for some reason.
