I Need Some Advice

G - December 20

Hi, This is my fourth month TTC. This month, my husband and I decided to purchase an ovulation kit (the strips). Anyway, I got a really light line for most of the days(which they say means you are not ovulating yet). On day 11-12 of my cycle (which varies month to month) I had a significantly darker line than the other days (but still not as dark as the reference line), Today I took another strip test and there was a line, which was barely visible(could hardly even see it). Does this mean that I have already ovulated (on the days where the line was darker), we did have intercourse on those days just in case. I also noticed that I have not had that much cervical mucous, except for around cycle days 8-10????? Please give me your opinion/advice. Thanks!!!!!

Hi G! We have been TTC for 6 mths now, The first time I used the strips I had almost the same thing happen. I was so confused about when I ovulated and then the strips confused me even more. I had the same type of readings I didnt have very much cervical mucous either. I read that taking Robitussin cough medicine helped with the cervical mucous. I dont know if this had anything to do with the test, but I continued to use the strips, and used the cough medicine for my next cycle, I had so much discharge and I got a positive reading on the strip when i tested. Like I said I dont know if it had anything to do with the test. But it gave me a positive reading. Sorry I couldnt be much more help. S

The mucus is one of the best signs for timing. It comes in the days leading up to and including ovulation. The highest chance of impregnantion is the day before ovualtion, which in your case was prob the 10th. Remember that sperm live up to 5 days, and eggs only 1 day
