Clear Blue Fertility Monitor

This is my 1st month using the Clear Blue Fertility Monitor. I've read the instructions but was wondering what your experiences with it were? I'm on day 15 with a "high" reading BUT that has been the case since day 10. I'm planning on giving it another try next month to see what happens but my only concern is I've used the ovulation tests (sticks) in the past and for those of you who have used them know that both lines need to be as dark or darker than the test strip - that never happened for me. The 2nd line showed up but wasn't the color that they indicated it should be. I've been to the fertility dr and have told them about the sticks and they didn't seem concerned.

Has anyone ever used the monitor only to get a high reading - never a peak reading and still conceived?

Thanks so much!

What can I do next?

I used this monitor for almost 2 years trying to get pregnant with my first baby. The first month or so that you use it, it has to adjust to your body's schedule so it will show the "high" reading for longer than it actually should. It will become more accurate the longer you use it. Also, don't pay attention to the lines on the sticks from these as they are not the same as the ovulation tests that come without the monitor. As I said before, I used this monitor for about 2 years trying to get pregnant with my first baby ... Not one time during those years did I EVER get a "peak" reading. I got the high reading at times (not always) but guess what?! I got pregnant anyway!!! :) It was a stressful couple years of trying but oh so worth it! If you have any further questions on this monitor (or anything), please feel free to contact me anytime. Best of luck to you!!

Is this a new monitor? It could take another month to calculate accurately. If it is a used one it could take yet another month. After 2 years of trying to get pregnant on and off with no luck - i purchased this monitor (my friends swore by it!) We got pregnant on the 2nd month - but we only had sex on the 1st peak day. Give it another month or two for the machine to calculate.
best wishes!

I used the monitor to concieve my first that is 20 months and am now 26 weeks pregnant with my second. If I didn't reach peak I didn't ovulate. My problem was I didn't get a period unless I did ovulate and some times my cycle was 32 or more days long. It was very hard to guess when I ovulated naturally. I was on day 16 with my daughter and on day 18 with this pregnancy. Like another one of the respondants said, I concieved on the first day of my peak time. I also had to go on clomid, in fact they started with the lowest dose and I was at the highest to concieve my first and for my second I was at the lowest.

I would suggest if you have not reached peak, to let your OB know and they possibly might prescribe some clomid for you.

Good luck and keep going with the monitor, I know this was the only way we concieved!

I didn't peak until day 17/18. I got pregnant the second month using it, after trying for over a year before that.

When we were trying to conceive, I borrowed a CBEM from a friend and was having something like you. The reading would go to high and then fall back down and I'd have a period. This happened for about 6 months. There are a few reasons why you may not be 'peaking' or releasing an egg. Give it a few months, maybe this month is just an off month, many things can affect it: job, stress, environmental stresses, family, diet. Track your progress (highs, lows, normal), and the days you have sex, and go back to your dr in 5-6 months. I understand it's a long time to wait, but it gives them a good view, and something to work with. They typically say around one year of trying, and then come in for a consultation, unless there are some issues with your/ spouse's past. Patience is very hard, but rewarded!

As I said, I tracked for about 6 months, and it would always go high, but never peak. I did 2 rounds of clomid on the lowest dose, and on the 2nd round got pregnant. Then whatever the issue was, possibly corrected itself, because we conceived #2 naturally.
