So this is my first month using the clearblue advanced and I started testing on CD 7 since that what the instructions suggested. I had open circles for 2 days and flashing smileys for 2 days and today recieved a solid smiley face. DH and I have BD on CD 7,8,9, and plan to tonight and tomorrow. I am really hoping that this month is our month. I am currently taking prenatals and have been since August. Has anyone else used the clearblue advanced and had success the first month? Any suggestions from anyone about things I may be doing wrong with the OPK?

I used it for a couple of cycles and it was really good. Only stopped because it was so expensive!
Anyway I can’t comment on getting pregnant because I’m not TTC yet but it sounds like your timing is great so fingers crossed for you!

megadam311: FX for you!
I used it for the first time at the end of august/ beginning september but wasn’t like u were I got a flashing smiley.. I only got a Solid smiley aT CD10 it was weird because my cycle is normally 31 days.. Anyway I thought maybe I was ovulating so we BD every day that week.. I thought I was pregnant because I didn’t receive my period on August! But I got BFN!!! i don’t normally have missed period and I still don’t have my period today! I’m already on CD50! Ugh… Hoping to at least get a BFP or if i don’t then at least receive my period!! But honestly it seems like the way your having it with the test and I think you really have a strong chance of getting that BFP! FX! Update us!

I tried it for the first time this month. I started on CD 12- got an open circle. Flashing smiley on CD 13 and solid on CD 14. We did not bd until CD 14 for a few reasons, so I am pretty sure we missed this month. I was expecting a few days of flashing smileys, so I really thought we had a couple of days- but that wasn’t the case. My cycle varies from 29-34 days. The month I got pregnant with dd, I was for sure we’d missed the window. When I found out I was pregnant, I realized I must have been off with the timing my ovulation most months. So, this time around, we are using the opk. I am pretty confident timing is our issue- so hopefully with the cb opk, that will take care of that problem! Good luck to you!

I used the regular clear blue esay digital one mostly exclusively for 2 cycles. I was confident and excited like you. I got an error message in my 3 rd cycle. since my first two were not successful I charted for the 3rd. I relied more on Cm and temping and I am now 7 weeks pregnant! I was getting positives 4 days before my o date on clear blue easy. I know this cause I was charting too but relied more on the opk then my cm and temp the first two cycles. my advice is to not stop bding every day or every other day if you can until cd 20. I have a 28 day cycle, got positives on clear blue on like cd 8,9,10 but actually did not ovulate till cycle day 17. Turns out i have an 11 day luteal phase which I would not have known until really attention to my chart. Best of luck! I wish I didnt stop bding based on just clear blue easy so I thought I’d share my story.

megadam311: I used it and had success the first time around. If you got a solid smiley after a few flashing smileys then it’s quite promising! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you!!
