Shannon - February 22

Hi everyone! I bought a Saliva Ovulation Predictor Test this month and have been charting my findings since my period (February 8th). On Friday and Saturday I was transitional. (Just a little bit of ferning... meaning I was getting close to ovulation) On Sunday I was back to just plain "crystal" looking shapes and the same on Monday and Today. I don't understand. Why didn't I ever get to the stage of "fertile”? Has anyone used this type of test? I was suppose to ovulate yesterday (If you go back 14 days from my expected period) so we did have s_x Friday night and Sunday Night So if it did happen I hope I didn't miss it... but is it possible that I didn't ovulate? My mom had lots of trouble getting pregnant (took her 8 years with my brother and another 5 with me) So I'm wondering if this is a sign that I should get checked at the doctor. I've been trying for over a year now. Sorry this is so long and probably very confusing but I' m just a little mixed up! Thanks everyone. I hope this is the month for all of us TTC!!!!!

Thanks for the Info "Hello"! That really sucks though!! I'm just hoping that maybe this month I will get pregnant and then I won't have to worry about it anyways!! Anyone else have experience with this type of test?

So.... Just wanting to tell everyone how utterly confused I am. Even if this saliva test doesn't work all that well I can't understand why today after several days of not being fertile.. it is showing that I am ... AGAIN!! There is a lot of ferning today. What does this all mean! I really think that every month we try I find it harder and harder to distinguish between signs and symptoms and ovulation and.... urghhh!! :-) Is anyone else as confused as me!! Sorry.. I just needed to vent! I'm so glad I have this forum to relieve my frustrations!

What is an "estrogen surge" or "estrogen spike"? While estrogen is present in your body throughout your cycle, just prior to ovulation you may have an “estrogen surge” - a marked increase in the presence of estrogen. The increase of estrogen facilitates the ferning patterns in your saliva. An estrogen surge or ovulation may not occur in all cycles for all women. Are ferning patterns observable at other times in my cycle? A second second estrogen surge may occur right at the end of your cycle. By monitoring cycle length, and keeping daily results, the second surge should not be confounded with the estrogen surge preceding ovulation. Also, as different women produce differing levels of estrogen, ferning patterns may vary a bit in appearance and duration.
