Clearblue ovulation tests

I used these when getting pregnant with my son, so I decided to get them again this time. Only thing is I only used them one day and I had the solid smiley face, so I didn't use it again. This time I decided to start them when it says on the package, so first day big fat nothing...and now 3 days of flashing smiley faces. I'm not worried yet, since it says the average woman gets at least 4 flashy smiles first. But reading reviews if this test and women saying they had 5 to 10 flashy smiles and no solid, has me questioning it. I know they say in them DO NOT USE IF YOU HAVE PCOS....ok but I do and it worked once. So if any of you ladies use these or have can you share your thoughts & experiences with me. Thanks <3

I used them before and gotten the steady smily face still didnt get pregnant then but I think that was due to my mile case of endo that I didnt know I had. I also started testing from what the instructions say about 5 days or so after or something like that. how long have you been trying?

My son is 15 months now, and we have been trying about 6 months. Im 42 now, so that's forever at my age & with all my issues. Next after this, is probably back to the fertility doctor, but thought Id try one more time by ourselves. Are you trying other methods currently?

Girl i tried all kinds of stuff. We did fertility cycle and this go around i added some vitamins supplements, Castro oil pack, essential oils, yoga, acupunture, and change my diet. We had been trying for years and finally got bfp. I actually saw a dramatic change in all my tests this go around.

My doc told me not to use the purple cap ones.  It tests for LH and estrogen and since I have pcos, they would do me know good.  Hope this helps!

I have PCOS also, and I use those ones. They did work the first time. So I decided to use them again. The first few times I had big fat o's , so something is going on if I get flashy smiles. I've also added cheap ovulation strips yesterday and today...I think it's getting better 🤔 my chart says I should ovulate tomorrow 🙏🏼
