Please tell me if this is TMI.
For the past 4 months I have been using the Clearblue Easy fertility monitor (pictured to the right). Every month I have been getting the "egg" on day 17. For those of you out there who are not familiar with this type of device, this is basically the day you are supposed to get down and dirty to have the best chance of getting knocked up.
So I have been following this regimen without any success and at this point I am questioning the accuracy of these tests. Why now? Because now I am in day 20 and still no egg. I'm pretty sure I have already ovulated and have been trying to listen to my body and the machine. I read on the Internet that you are also supposed to "try" prior to your money day so I have been doing that too.
This whole no egg thing is still driving me nuts. I called the company today and they said if there is no egg then keep going, or maybe I'm not ovulating this month. Can that happen?
I curious if any of you out there have used these type of machines and had any luck or success. As an aside I was able to get pregnant twice (on the first try) with the sticks that give you simile faces, but to save money this time I went with the fancy monitor. Yes, I am now regretting that decision.
Please feel free to leave anonymous comments if you have any advice or experience with this device or getting knocked up in general.
