Hi tepuhunny2,

If your cycles are regular up to 9 days of high fertility (flashing smiley)can be normal, after this it can be less likely to see peak fertility. If you tested from the correct day recommended and see 9 days of high fertility you should stop testing. Peak fertility may not be seen if the surge did not occur or if the surge was low/short.

A flashing smiley face on an ovulation test typically indicates a high fertility status, while a solid smiley face indicates peak fertility. The number of days with a flashing smiley face can vary between individuals. Here are some considerations:

  1. Normal Variation: It's normal for the number of days with a flashing smiley face to vary. Some people may experience shorter or longer high fertility phases.

  2. Testing Frequency: If you're testing once a day, you might miss the transition to peak fertility. Consider testing more frequently, especially as you approach the expected time of ovulation.

  3. Luteinizing Hormone (LH) Surge: The test detects an LH surge, which precedes ovulation. Once the LH surge is detected, you should ovulate within 24-36 hours. The solid smiley face indicates the peak of the LH surge.

  4. Cycle Irregularities: If you have irregular cycles, it might affect the predictability of ovulation. Factors such as stress, illness, or changes in routine can impact the timing of ovulation.

  5. Consultation: If you have concerns or if the pattern persists without reaching peak fertility, consider consulting with a healthcare professional or a fertility specialist for personalized advice.

Remember that ovulation prediction kits are tools to help identify fertile days, but they don't guarantee pregnancy. If you have specific fertility concerns or if you've been trying to conceive without success, it's advisable to seek guidance from a healthcare provider.
