Hi ladies,

Just joined coz I'm anxiously awaiting my next cycle so i can try out my new CBFM and i had to tell someone. I've heard great success stories from people who used them. I've been using the CB digital opk and got my first smile1.gif 5 days ago, using IC as well but its to hard to determine the lines. DTD all but 3 days so far this cycle so i may not even need the CBFM but even so im really excited to start using it. Anyone else waiting out their cycle so they can start using it?

It's the clear blue fertility monitor. Its kinda like a digital opk but it also tests for oestrogen so gives you high fertility days aswell as peak fertility days when you ovulate. It keeps track of what cycle day you are, tells you when to test for ovulation and even tells you when your period should be due so you know when to test for pregnancy. It also keeps a memory of your hormone levels for 6 months so personalizes to your cycle. I've read about so many people falling pregnant within afew months of starting to use one so I'm pretty excited to start using mine. I'm shocking at keeping track of my cycle, last time I fell pregnant (miscarried at 8wks) I was 3 days late before I realised I should've had a period and the fact that it tells you wen to test for ovulation means I won't be testing too early or late so am more likely to catch an eggy. They are pretty expensive, I got mine for $190au but that included 4 months of test sticks (possibly more depending on how many I end up needing each month before it reads a surge) but for what they do I reckon it's worth the cost   biggrin.gif

I have one and am using it for the second cycle.
My first cycle I did not receive a peak reading and had a high reading right up and on the day AF arrived.
This second cycle, I have had a high reading since day 6.  I believe I will ovulate today and still haven't had a peak reading.  Will have to see if I keep getting a high reading after I ovulate.  It has been making me think that I have a way to high level of oestrogen.  Mentioned it to my Doctor, but she wasn't to concerned.

Thanks guys, wasn't sure what CBFM meant. Might have to look in to one. I have just been using the OPK strips off the internet but have not been having success in gaining a positive reading (this is my third cycle TTC).
