Straight to peak

Hi for the past two months testing I have gone straight to peak fertility. I am using shettles method to try for a girl as have two boys so was wanting to conceive a few days before ovulation on high fertility days. Was wondering what your advice would be.

Hi, Karen - This test is different from other ovulation tests in that it tracks the changes in 2 hormones throughout the menstrual cycle:  estrogen and LH.  If the necessary changes in estrogen are detected, the holder will show High Fertility (flashing smiley).  And if an LH surge is detected, the holder will show Peak Fertility (solid smiley).  It’s possible for the holder to change from Low to Peak without displaying High Fertility.  This can happen if your estrogen level isn’t high enough to be detected by the test, if your hormone changes occur on the same day, if a test is inadvertently missed, or if testing begins too late in your cycle.  You can be assured that you’ve still found your two best days to conceive.

I wanted to also let you know we don't have information on how to time intercourse for gender results.

Thanks so much for contacting us.
