I am a new member. I am trying to conceive number 1 and have no idea what I am doing. I used the ovulation kit this month (this weekend) and both lines have been the same color, the reference line being thinner than the test line. Does anyone have any experience with this? I am trying to figure out if I am ovulating after having cysts, and I am so frustrated. I cannot do the bbt--I always forgot
Any experience that anyone has would be greatly appreciated, I am the first of our friends to do this so I have no one to talk to. Feel free to email me if you want to chat: email@example.com.
Hi i used the ovulation kits when i was trying to conceive my son, but i found them a right pain and gave up after a few months (my son is 4 now) i`m trying for my second baby and this is my second month of trying, last month I bought a saliva micro scope from the internet which cost me £17.00 inc postage and this is the first month i`ve been using it i am now approching the middle of my cycle and should be seeing a result from it soon (its called ferning) so we`ll see if it predicts if i`m ovulation or not. I`ve read a bit about it and quite alot of people have used them and said it had great results, it tells you when your about to ovulate and when you are ovulating so gives a greater chance of pin pointing the important time to have sex, where as the ovulation sticks only tell you when you have ovulated so it could be to late as if you time it right with the saliva test you could be having sex before and during your fertile period.
Hope that help a little and best of luck to you.
BABY MEGHAN WAS BORN ON THE 26TH OF NOVEMBER 2005 AND WE WONT BE HAVING ANYMORE............
I am recently pregnant (at a little over 6 weeks right now)... When I was done with my period each month we would have sex every 2 to 3 days... I did try one of the ovulation kits but they were a pain... the month I used it it said I was ovulating at about 14 days (my cycle is 28 days)... I only used it one month (not the month I got pregnant)... MOst people say you will ovulate between 10 and 14 days if you have a 28 day cycle... Good Luck and be patient... it will eventually happen... It took us almost a year...
Until the arrival of our first baby!
Thanks for all of your responses, it is so tricky! Who would have thought when you are trying to avoid pregnancy. The lines on the test have been about equal since saturday. Anyone ever have both lines for more than a day? Thanks to everyone and baby dust to all!

I am TTC#2 and have been using the clearblue easy fertility monitor, they are expensive but well worth the investment IMO. I have gotten pregnant both times I used it, even though they ended in miscarriages. Its really easy to use and reliable, I've found that my ovulation fluctuates from cd 14-17. Good Luck!
Get one of the saliva testers, the kind with just a little lit up microscope that you use to look at your dried spit... It's reusable (costs about $20-30), is very accurate, and I found that there was NO confusion with reading the results.
A tip though, and an IMPORTANT one: If you use one of these, let the saliva dry naturally! Do not blow on it to speed the process up because you will ruin the little fern patterns you are looking for as a sign of ovulation! You get a couple days warning before you ovulate with these too, so you have a chance to BD a day or two before you ovulate, which gives you the best chance for a BFP.
