Confused ovulation test

I got high fertility the week of 5th May. I didn't test on Saturday 9th May. On the 10th May I took the test again it was just a face.

On the 20th and 21st May I retook the ovulation test it came up as smile what could this mean?

Have the testing kits you have, got instructions to show what the different results mean? Or perhaps the brand have a website that had an questions section that might shed some light on the results you have?

Does the website/packaging show you any reasons why you might get positives at different times of the month? Ovulation sticks aren't that reliable and sometimes a positive result doesn't always mean that you have ovulated.

Have you been tracking your cycle for very long? do you know roughly when you were due to ovulate? If you think you might be ovulating now and not earlier in the month then check your cervical mucus. When you're ovulating this should be like egg whites so if you have that now I'd say the test earlier in the month wasn't accurate or if you have cervical mucus now that's cloudy and thick it would sugesst that you ovulate earlier in the month.

I'm due on now, was supposed to ovulate 2 weeks ago. My concern is why it came up positive now as well.

I've been using digital ovulation tests, they are ment to be very reliable.

I don't think that ovulation itself is overly reliable especially if you have irregular cycle length, or things like PCOSso the tests can be similarly unreliable.

It is possible though if you are due on and your period has not come that it is picking up Hcg in your urine instead, have you tried a pregnancy test to see if you are pregnant? Ovulation tests can sometimes show positive for pregnancy as the LH is molecularly similar to HCG.

Not taken one yet I had a miscarriage about a year ago so I'm quite anxious at the moment

That's totally understandable, I had a missed miscarriage in 2018 and was terrified about taking another pregnancy test. I ended up buying one online as I couldn't face going to the shop and I didn't tell anyone that I was doing it in case it was negative so I really feel for you, sending you lots of love xx

Thankyou.

Mine was also a missed miscarriage, thought all was good having all pregnancy symptoms, then boom came the news was almost 12 weeks, the fetus died at 7 and a half weeks.

Now I'm not really getting as nauseous as I did last time, my appetite is going and I'm feeling much more tired and weak.

Maybe wait a few days and see if your period comes then maybe take a test if you feel you're able to? I didn't have any symptoms in my second pregnancy, never any sickness or nausea. I didn't feel pregnant at all like with the first one, the first time I had such bad indegestion.

I was very lucky and everything worked out the second time and my little girl is now nearly 10 months old. I have everything crossed for you xx

That's good to hear.

I'm scared I'll lose the baby one way or another.

Fingers crossed it will all be good.
