OPK Hell!!

Why do I always have issues? Last month I bought the cheap ovulation kit. Those two lines were driving me crazy. I would see faint lines. I would stare at it and wonder what does this crap mean.

It all started when I was in the Wal-Mart line. The ovulation kits were behind the counter. I had to ask the clerk to tell me the prices.  My face must have shown my horror because of the high price. The clerk offered the equate version. I was telling my friend I can’t tell if I ovulated or not. She told me I shouldn’t have been cheap. She must not know me cheap is my middle name. LOL!!!

Clear Blue Easy digital here I come. So this month I bought the famed Clear Blue Easy Ovulation kit.  I am still not happy. I have not gotten a smiley face. I was testing for over a week. The calculations on the box, I have a regular 28 day cycle then I should ovulate around the 15 day. Well that went out the window. I think I am on the 20th day and no smiley face. Where the hell is my smiley face?

Do I need more problems? You know this drives me crazy. Now I am all over the internet for others that didn’t get the smiley face. Here are the few things per the internet could be the problem.

1)    I might not ovulate. Even though the RE told me 90% of the time if I have a regular period I ovulate.

2)    I could be testing at the wrong time. Clear Blue Easy says you can test any time. http://www.Peeonastick.com says you should test in the afternoon or evening or you could miss your LH surge.

Who the hell knows? I know I don’t need any more problems. The Gynecologist told me to chart my period using the basal temp.  I have to have three months of information then we will work on a protocol.

All this crap needs to be easier. All this puts me into hypochondriac mode. I swear nothing can be easy in my world.

One thought on “OPK Hell!!

  1. I hear you! There are lots of little parts to this process that can drive you crazy! I use the cheap ovu test strip from the internet that are only around 50 cents a piece I think and they work great for me. But you have to pee in a cup and dip them which is a pain. Also, it’s recommended that around the date of your ovulation – for you maybe day 12 or day 13 – you should start testing twice a day: one time when you first get up and another time around 5 or 6 p.m. That way you can’t miss a sneaky LH surge. Hang in there!
