Hey ladies, anyone using one or has experience? I started testing on cd 6, we r doing the deed every other day. Waiting to see peak fertility in the next few days. Did u do the deed every day on peak fertility days or stick to every other day?

I have never used the fertility monitor but i do use the clear blue ovulation kits...once i get a smiley face...we do it that day, and then like 3 days after the smiley face. I would do it everyday once you reach the peak of fertility.

I've been using the monitor every time we've tried to get pregnant over the past 8 years. I'm currently preagnant with baby#4. :)  Have you gotten any "high" days yet? For me (because I take fertility meds) I get 6 days of "high" readings and then 2 peak days. You'll automatically get a high after the 2 peak days. We have sex starting on my 4th high day and everyday till the day after peak(usually days 13-17 of my cycle). The more cycles you use the monitor the more it "gets to know you". Like I have really really long cycles usually, so the monitor doesn't have me start testing until day 9. I usually peak somewhere between days 15-18. Sorry, this is kind of rambling but hope it helps.    :)

I started testing on cd 6, 6, 7, and 8 showed low fertility. Cd 9, 10, 11 has been high fertility, waiting for peak fertility. My cycles are 29-31 days long. Thankyou for replying. Would u recommend dtd daily from now as its cd 11?

If your cycles are usually 29-31 days you'll probably ovulate around day 15-17. So I'd probably start dtd daily on day 12 through the day after you peak. Sometimes in the beginning when the monitor is getting to know you it may read high and stay high until your period starts. (I've had this happen) and there's no peak.  It could mean 2 things, #1 you didn't ovulate this cycle or #2 the surge was so subtle it didn't catch it. So even if it doesn't peak I'd still dtd just in case you do still ovulate and it misses it. The good news is in the 8 years I've used the monitor I've never "missed a peak". The 2 months it went high and stayed high I didn't ovulate, so the monitor was right. lol :) Hope this answers your question :)

I used the cbefm this cycle,and it worked the first try. We are currently 4weeks & 2days,edd_10/26/13. I received a total of 3 high days and 2 peak days. We bd everyday on high days and 2x a day on peak days,although it was exhausting by the 5th day,we caught our egg! I hope you have a good experience with it as I did.GL & babydust to you
