Hey there, ladies–
Getting married in six days and have been charting my cycles for the past few months using the Clearblue Advanced Digital Ovulation tests, the ones with the purple holder and sticks. I follow the directions to the letter–first thing in the morning, same time every day, pee on the stick. About five or six days ago, I received the flashing smiley face. (This is actually a first for me–the months prior, I only ever saw JUST my peak fertility.) For both days, I received the flashing smiley, and then–Yep–the SOLID smiley face. Okay, excellent! I know I’m ovulating and my periods come like clockwork, every 30 days. Here’s my questions:
Just for curiosity’s sake, I waited the 48 hours for the solid smiley face to disappear and then retested, even though the box says it’s not necessary. To my surprise, today after waking up and peeing on the stick, I got the flashing smiley face again! I’m super-confused, what the hell is going on?!
I’ve read many of mixed reviews on this device: About half the internet says it’s a God-send, while the other half is complaining of the inaccuracies of the test. For the record, I have no history of abnormal pap smears, PCOS, or any of that. I’m 30 years old. Can somebody PLEASE help me out?? Thanks ladies!
