Ovulation confusion

Wondering if anyone can shed some light for me, I’ve been tracking my ovulation at home and have had no LH surge. On Wednesday I had a follicle that was ‘ready’ and the scan today shows it’s collapsed and fluids been realised suggesting I’ve ovulated.

I’ve got a day 21 blood test next week to confirm as there’s the possibility the follicle never realised an egg but this is to determine whether I go ahead with a natural FET. It’s all feeling a little to uncertain for me and I don’t understand if I have ovulated why it hasn’t shown on the kits, I’m using the clear blue ones btw. Anyone else experienced this? 🧐

Hey hun. I used the advanced digital...one month i got the flashing face for 5 days then peak. The second time I only got flashing and third nothing until day 19 then straight to peak....i decided it was too stressful so went with a medicated cycle.

Good luck xx

Thank you, I’m so confused that’s there’s been nothing showing considering what the scan shows. In my gut I want to go with medicated but then I think I’ve tried that unsuccessfully twice, could it be worth trying something different xx

I've been told and have read that you can sometimes miss the surge as you never really know when it happens and it doesn't always last very long. I have consistently shown to ovulate in blood tests yet this month my clear blue digital never detected a surge, but last month's did. The blood test will give you more answers. I really do think ovulation sticks can make you more stressed- they were the reason for my wobble on Sunday as I was fretting we had missed ovulation! I hope you get a favourable result xx

Your right there definitely very stressful, last time I used them was with clomid and as I was told I don’t ovulated never bothered since. Hope your okay and got it resolved after Sunday xx

Hello, apparently it is quite easy to miss the LH surge. The best time to test is 2pm. Did you see any faint line at all?

I use a digital test and nothing at all, my clinic said to test first thing in the morning but maybe in future il try testing around then. Thank you!

A ok, I tried digital one but didn’t like them as you need to do them from a specific day to set the baseline. I used simple, cheap ones and they always worked but you should test with them around 2pm. Good luck!
