Peak fertility with no high fertility days

The first day of the last period was on July 14th (5 days long). I then took the first Clear Blue Digital Ovulation Test on July 28th (15th day) because my cycles vary at about 33 days long. I tested for 4 days and it gave me the circle (low fertility). Then on August 1st it gave me the steady smiley face (not flashing). I was using the first urine of the day as recommended, and now after reading some of the reviews, I am afraid something went wrong with the testing because I did not have any days of high fertility (with flashing smiley face) and instead I had the stead smiley face. Any advice on what I could have done wrong?

Hi Anne,  Thanks for getting in touch.  From the information you have supplied we would recommend that if you are using the test in future cycles you start testing on cycle day 13.  It could be that you started testing a little too late for the test to be able to detect the increase in estrogen that causes High Fertility to be shown.  Be reassured that by seeing Peak Fertility you have still been able to find the two best days to try to conceive but do feel free to call us if you have further questions.  Wishing you lots of luck!
