I’m on my third month of using OPKs. I’ve started each time on CD11 and have had 2 or 3 circles, 1 or 2 flashing smileys and then the solid smiley. This month, I had only one circle, but am now on my fifth flashing smiley. is it normal that my “fertile period” would go on so long without a peak? Has anyone else had lots of flashers? If I get the flashing one but not the solid, is it likely that Im not ovulating?
i live in a place where I can’t easily get OPKs etc. my DH brought these back from a Europe trip. I can’t switch brands or anything for the moment.

Yep, that’s happened to me! I’ve used the Clear Blue OPK for several months now, and I’ve ranged from flashing smileys for two days, to flashing smileys for six days. The month that I got pregnant (although ended in a CP), I had flashing smileys for five days before I got the solid smiley. I also use the Wondfo strips at the same time, and they have pretty much always reflected what was shown in the Clear Blue (but I have found the strips to be a bit hard to read at times). I just like the extra fertile days that the CB gives you with the flashing smileys!

glad I’m not the only one! I decided not to test this morning because DH is going away for two weeks tomorrow and since the smileys have been flashing all week, we’ve DTD when possible and will again before he leaves. That means more sticks for next month!
