Clearblue Digital Advanced Kit

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How accurate will it be if I test tomorrow?
    Tomorrow I will be 10 dpo, and 4 days till af, seeing as it starts on Saturday.
    Would it be too early to test with First Response Early Detection?
    Either way I'm getting a blood test done tomorrow when I go to my regular doctors appointment.

    I also have ClearBlue Digital tests.
    Which would be better to use?

    Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      the blood test is very accurate, the 'early' response kits are not so much. The kits are about 40-50% accurate 4 days early, it says how accurate in the leaflet instructions somewhere (I was anxious waiting for wife's test and reading them to keep myself occupied) . They want you to believe they are absolutely accurate that early but that's far from true.

  2. QUESTION:
    Anyone who used clearblue digital pregnancy test please help!!!!!!?
    Clearblue digital pg test tells results in word. The kit consists of two separate parts one is test holder the other is test stick and the test stick has the absorbent strip. The display on test holder shows the result" pg" or "not pg" if performed correctly in one or three minutes. I got a " not pg" on display but when I released the test stick from the test holder( test holder could be reused but test stick not), I saw too lines on the stick with one line pretty faint and hard to detect. I wonder if the lines should tell something different. The instruction states that lines should be disregarded and the words on display should be the only answer. My period is overdue several days, is there anyone who experienced the same thing and indeed pg?

    Thank you gals in advance! Hope you have a nice day!!

    • ANSWER:
      For the Digital Clear Blue Easy test, those blue lines mean nothing. They just mean the test worked correctly. Just trust the digital response, since this is a digital test.

      The plain ole urine test by Clear Blue Easy is fast and easy to read. You either see a - for no and a + for yes... And better priced than the digital...

    • ANSWER:
      just go get a regular flippin test. I would think that is suspect. my first child - the 2nd line was really faint

  4. QUESTION:
    what actually helps a woman get pregnant ? any advice?
    thanks in advance. no wanna be smart ass comments.

    • ANSWER:
      OK about ovulation. According to the ovulation kit that I used...I would recommend you get one. (Clearblue Easy...digital) The digital ones are worth the extra money...no ambiguity. Ovulation occurs between 8 and 14 days after THE FIRST DAY OF YOUR PERIOD...not after your period ends. I actually ovulated 9 days after the first day of my period. I never would have believed that was when I ovulated if I hadn't been through this. I spent a year trying around the 14th day and got NOTHING. First month out with this kit I got pregnant.

      Also, I made my husband abstain from any sort of release for a week before I ovulated, just to make sure he had plenty of swimmers. After I did also do the whole lay with your legs going up the headboard for 10 minutes or so. I don't know if any of these things helped but somehow it worked.

  5. QUESTION:
    TTC For 10 mths.....?
    Hi

    I have used the Clearblue Digital Ovulation kit and got my smiley face on 15/06 - my last period before that was the 27/05.

    I have really irregular periods ranging from 28 to 47(!!) days. This makes it impossible for me to really know if I have missed a period or whether this is just going to be another long cycle.

    I have taken 2 HPT within the last 3 days and both neg. Could it be that its just too early to show up or if I was preg would it be positive by now?

    Thanks in advance

Clearblue Digital Monitor Ovulation Kit

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Ovulation predictor kits and clearblue digital monitor?
    Do these 2 have the same results. I have just started clomid and am using the clearblue digital monitor. Do I need an ovulation predictor kit too? Or is it the same thing?

    • ANSWER:
      It's the same thing, the moniter comes in the predictor kit along with strips and instructions. I like this one because it is straight forward. The smiley face indicates your LH surge, and the 0 indicates nothing... You don't have to deal with strip colors and comparing colors etc... Hope it works for you and tri and test everyday at the same time. Baby dust!!

  2. QUESTION:
    Do any other OPK strips work in the Clearblue Easy Digital Ovulation kit?
    I hate that I have to spend so much $$ on the CBE Digital Ovulation kit that only comes w/7 strips! UGH Does anyone know if any other strips work in the CBE Digi kit?

    • ANSWER:
      I have heard--never tried it--that the sticks for the Clearblue Fertility Monitor will work in the clearblue digitalk OPKs. They cost about for a box of 30. Just be sure to insert the stick into the CB digi opk BEFORE you pee on it.

      Also, I found this, I know it doesn't really help but thought it was interesting.--

      "Now, I suspect that the Clearblue Digital OPK may use the same sticks as the Clearblue Digital Pregnancy Test, but I have not yet confirmed this. (My reasons for thinking this: the HPT patent states that the test sticks can measure LH as well as hCG. The test holders, the part that displays the result, are probably calibrated differently to give accurate results, but I see no reason why the sticks themselves couldn't be interchangeable . . . but that's just my guess, not a sure thing.) I did have one woman e-mail me and informed me that her Clearblue Digital OPK stick, used in a Clearblue Digital HPT holder, gave the correct result ("Pregnant"), but remember, this is just one anecdotal report."-- http://www.peeonastick.com/hptfaq.html

  3. QUESTION:
    which is better the digital ovulation tests or the fertility monitor?
    I have the clear blue digital ovulation kit but im yet to get a smiley face so i thought maybe im not testing on the right days. Would it be worth buying a fertility monitor so it can learn my cycles and tell me when i should be testing? I know i already asked this but i didnt get any answers so thought i'd repost...

    • ANSWER:
      I'd say the fertility monitor,because u might have to test twice a day with clearblue to make sure u don't miss the 'smiley face' and digitals can get quite pricey if u have to test twice a day..

  4. QUESTION:
    How sucessfull are ovulation predictor kits in helping you to conceive?
    My husband and I are trying to get pregnant. We've been trying now for 6 months. I think I'm going to purchase a ovulation predictor kit this month to help us know which day's i'm ovulation. I'm just curious for those of you who have used these kits, would you consider them succesful? If so, how long did it take you to conceive after using them? Thanks for your time and help.

    • ANSWER:
      My husband and I tried for 6 months, bought the clearblue tests with the smiley faces on them and those seemed to work correctly but the following month we actually used the clearblue ovulation digital monitor and we got pregnant on the second month using it. I would definitely recommend either the monitor or the test sticks and I plan on using them right away from the beginning with my next pregnancy!

  5. QUESTION:
    What is the best ovulation test kit to buy?
    Hi! Husband and I have been TTC for 6 months. I would like to start using the home ovulation kits. Could you please suggest the best brands/types. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I have used "Answers" brand several times because it's the cheapest (7 tests for about ). Today, I bought a box of Clearblue Easy Digital tests, but they were SO EXPENIVE-- 7 tests for ! Right next to those tests was a fertility monitor (also Clearblue) with 30 tests.

Test Clearblue Digital Ovulation

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    how will it go away on the test clearblue digital ovulation test?
    just took a clearblue digital ovulation test, and it still shows a blank circle how will that go away?

    • ANSWER:
      It will go away all by itself.

      Make sure you take the test stick out. If you don't, the empty circle will reappear for a few minutes when you do take it out, which is a nuisance when you really need to pee right now. I always save the holder of the last pack as a backup for when I make that mistake. The battery lasts a lot longer than just for the number of tests in the pack.

  2. QUESTION:
    When should I start testing with Clearblue easy digital ovulation test?
    I had 2 cycles in a row that were 36 days but then my last cycle was 47 days. I'm going to try the clearblue easy digital ovulation tests but I'm not sure when to start them. Based on the instructions for a 36 day cycle it says to start testing on CD 19. Should I go by my 36 day cycle or wait a few days? I just don't want to miss my positive!

    Thanks in advance for your answers!! Wishing everybody TTC lots of baby dust!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Im not sure when exactly you should test but if your cycles are that different I would suggest you rather get the Clear Blue Fertility Monitor It works much better and maybe will be less expensive then buying a Digital Monitor to Test on everyday. Good Luck In TTC and I'll Pray for Both Of Us :)

  3. QUESTION:
    When would i start using the ovulation tests?
    What dates would I start using the clearblue digital ovulation test strips. My last period date started on the 8th March and my cyle runs from between 28 and 30 days. Thanks x
    Do you mean 10 days after the start of my last period?
    Thanks for the info and congratulations!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there ! It usually says in the directions in the box... but since you run a normal cycle (not short or long) I believe you could start in a few days ! My hubby and I TTC for 2 1/2 years before we got smart and used an ovulation kit. I began one 4 days after the last day of my period in the beginning of August. We actually "missed" my ovulation day because of all the "pressure". LOL ! But because there's usually a three day window for ovulation, I ended up preggo anyway !!!!

      Good luck ! Lots of baby dust to you !!!!!!! ;o)

  4. QUESTION:
    What time of day to take ovulation tests?
    I am going to be starting to take Clearblue Digital Ovulation Tests on Wednesday for the first time. I have read on many questions on here about taking them at 2:00pm everyday versus taking them with first morning urine....can someone fill me in on why this would be true?? Thanks so much!

    • ANSWER:
      The optimal time to take an OPK is around 4pm although you can take them from 2pm-8pm as long as you haven't passed urine for an hour or so beforehand (just to be doubly sure). The reason why first morning urine is no good for an OPK is that your natural levels of Lutenising Hormone (what will turn the stick positive) is in a higher amount in the morning. Non-pregnant women naturally have a level of LH in their system at all stages in their cycles which is why having a concentrated pee in the morning to test with may cause a false positive.

      Hope that made sense! :-) Good luck ***

Clearblue Digital Opk

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How long did it take you to get pregnant when using Clearblue digital OPK?
    I bought 2 boxes of the Clearblue easy digital OPK (you get a smiley face when your LH surge is detected.) I would like to know, after using these tests and actively trying to get pregnant, how long did it take you to get pregnant? I know every body is different, but I want a general time frame of what I might be looking at.

    • ANSWER:
      i tried for 2 and a half years and the first month i used those i got pregnant!!!! ;) good luck!

  2. QUESTION:
    Could my ovulation predictor kit be wrong?
    My husband and I are ttc #3. I had the nexplanon implant removed on dec 31st, had some pinky discharge a few days after and a full bleed on jan 9th. I started using my opk yesterday (jan 14th) and it didn't detect an lh surge but today it did! Could it be wrong? My last period on the implant was dec 14th so I wasn't expecting to ovulate untill the 23rd. Im using the clearblue digital opk which is over 99% accurate. Could it be that I'm ovulating now and everything before this was just my body settling down after the implant?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, it can take variable amounts of time for your body to recover. Using the ClearBlue doesn't give you a complete picture, though. Read below.

  3. QUESTION:
    what time of day for digital ovulation test?
    most ovulation tests say mid day but the clearblue easy digital OPK's don't specify. what time of day is best for these? FMU? or mid day?
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I love how people answer these questions about ovulation tests and answer as prengnacy tests! I wish people could read! Anyway, a friend i met off this site (who is no longer here) bought them and said they work fine on FMU! She also uses the internet test strips and usues them at about 2 PM (which is what MOST of the tests reccomend) but you can go ahead and use digital with FMU! Good luck and tons of baby dust!

    I am an idiot a complete idiot!

    i forgot to replace the cap each time i used the clearblue digital opk.. and have had loads of ewcm but no positive opk .. do you think the cap affected the results?

    What is the best way to track when you ovulate?
    I thought about buying a Clearblue Easy Digital Monitor either new or through Ebay, but now I hear its hard to use? Or hard to read the test strips. So what out there is easier to use, or does anyone have any good suggestions that may have helped you or a friend? Thanks!!

    • ANSWER:
      Read "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" by Toni Weschler

      Cheaper and WAY more accurate

      Edit--what the first poster said is a total myth!! I ovulate 19 or 20 days after the first day of my last period USUALLY. But sometimes if I am stressed or sick or travel I ovulate MUCH later!!

  3. QUESTION:
    Has anyone used a Persona fertility monitor when TTC?
    Are they any good? Whats the advantage of one of these (very expensive!) digital monitors + sticks over just good old fashioned pee-sticks on their own?

    And whats the difference between the Clearblue Fertility Monitor and the Persona?

    • ANSWER:
      Well the advantage is that the machine does the reading for you and u dont hae to waste time wondering wether u did it right or not,
      Secondly, it tells u a few days prior to ovulation that u might be getting ready to ovulate, while pee sticks only tell u when u ovulate, which might have already been too late to concieve( the egg emains fertile the day of and day after ovulation, while sperm remains alive for upto 5 days in the body), so u can ttc when the machine tells u u might ovulate soon.
      I have used Clear Blue and found it easy to use, the other i havent used so dont know.
      Good Luck!

    with the Clearblue Digital Ovulation tests can you use them again and do you use one a day to make sure you don't miss any ovulation days?

    • ANSWER:
      i use both the digital tests just show a posative 24-36 hours before ovulation where clearblue fertility monitor shows you 5 fertile days before you ovulate which is supposed to give you a higher chance of falling pregnant

Clearblue Digital

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How reliable are ClearBlue Digital pregnancy tests? Anyone have a false negative?
    I took the Walgreens brand one first and it was + but one of the lines on the symbol was very light. Then i took the ClearBlue Digital and it was negative. what now? test again in a few days? has anyone had false *negatives* on a clearblue?

    • ANSWER:
      I hear the ClearBlue digitals need a higher level of HCG to trigger a positive than a lot of nondigitals. If you saw a faint positive, it's positive :) False positives are extremely rare. False negatives are pretty common early on in the pregnancy.

      Your HCG levels are probably too low to trigger a digital test, wait a few days and then test again. It'll probably be high enough in another 3 days to make the ClearBlue turn positive :)

      Congrats!!

  4. QUESTION:
    how good does clearblue digital pregnancy test work?
    how good does clearblue digital pregnancy test work and when would be best to take it like how many days after i miss my period or can i take it before my period and what time during the day would be best to get accurate results? and did it work well for you?

    • ANSWER:
      I've taken 2, both were right (one neg & one pos) you should use 1st morning urine or don't pee for 4 hours before taking it. Mine was taken the day before I was due (like the other answerer because I needed another test to tell me I was pregnant lol) and that was at 7 at night so it was pretty good. I'd wait until the day afterwards though.

  5. QUESTION:
    Is it just me or is taking a clearblue digital test really dramatic ?
    When I was TTC I took various brands of pregnancy tests and I found that taking the clearblue digitals very dramatic compared to taking tests with the lines. Has anyone eles found this and do you have a theory why? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Yeah I used the digital one that tells u wen u conceived and everything and I'd had a positive test with the lines but even the bloody size of it, the thing is huge and official like it's saying 'DO NOT QUESTION MY AUTHORITY> YOU DO NOT NEED TO DOUBLE CHECK. WHAT I SAY GOES' lol But then its gotta be the bloody things cost a freekin fortune! To be fair, it gave me a positive two clean weeks before the doctors did, they were still testing negative!

  2. QUESTION:
    Can I use my Clearblue Easy Fertility Monitor while on Clomid?
    I'm starting clomid on my next cycle and the instructions from my doctor say to use the fertility sticks, and I didn't even think to ask her if i could use the monitor. Anyone have any luck using it while on clomid? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You can use your monitor while on clomid, but there is a risk of your monitor picking up extra hormone levels due to the clomid even when you are not ovulating, since your monitor is used to your regular levels. When I was on clomid, I used both the monitor and the digital clear blue ovulation tests. They both turned positive on the same days. However, my doctor told me to use both. You can use the pee sticks that come with your monitor for the digital clear blue ovulation tests. The digital test is much better than the line tests. The line tests, you have to determine if the test line is as dark or darker than the control line. This may sound easy, but it is actually really hard to determine some times. With the digital, there is a smiley face if you are ovulating and an empty circle if you are not. It is fool proof.

      Good luck and lots of baby dust to you!

  3. QUESTION:
    clearblue fertility monitor?
    hey, was just wondering if anyone here uses a clearblue fertility monitor and what they are like??, i have been using digital ovulation tests but thought i may as well get one of these, there £100 from boots but i have no problem buying one second hand if anyone has one for sale???

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, skip the one from Boots. I got one from my friend, who in turn got it from her friend. The first lady said it was good luck when she gave it to my friend (because by that time, she was pregnant) and my friend got PG the very first time she used it! I'm hoping the good luck will rub off on me too :)

      They come with v. detailed instructions which seem to be really complicated when you fist look at them, but it's a very clever device, simple to use after the first day (it's also very clean to use, as the end of the stick where you pee is covered up when you put it in the monitor) - and I think probably worth the 30 quid you'll find it for on eBay. My only real tip is to try and time it so that you get the kit right before your period, because you're supposed to start using it on day 1 (or within a few days). I got it on day 6 and was sad that I couldn't use it that first month (OK, so perhaps that's cos I'm a little emotional about all this TTC stuff !!!)

  4. QUESTION:
    clearblue easy fertility monitor. i have peak reading?
    do u have sex on peak or high reading. we will have sex today, i have a peak reading. yesterday (only one day) i had a high reading but did not have sex. are my chances ok? according to something else i was reading, it says today i am ovulating so it is too late? we did have sex the day before yesterday which the fertility monitor showed a low reading. im so confused! thanks

    • ANSWER:
      You're fine! The instructions in the monitor do say to have sex at least once during high fertility and at least once during peak fertility - but it's really the peak fertility that matters. Peak means you're ABOUT to ovulate - not that you have. It measures your LH surge and your Estrogen surge which are signs of impending ovulation. If you have two days of Peak - then have sex again on the next day. I typically had just one day of Peak.

      If your husband has a low sperm count then you may have actually done yourself a favor by not having sex on the high fertility day. Peak means you're at your most fertile so it gives his sperm their best chance.

      I used both the Clear Blue Easy digital ovulation stick and the monitor and found that the monitor was much more accurate.

      Best of luck and baby dust to us both!

    I've been using the Clear Blue Easy Monitor. I've been getting high readings for 14 days. No peaks. I was wondering what reading would I get if I got pregnant on one of those previous high reading days?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't be fooled by the constant high readings, i had the same problem i had high reading for a full cycle and i convinced myself i was pregnant and tested and tested for pregnancy and all were negative.. so i rung the helpline number and they weren't much use.... the following month i had the same problem and figured out that the cb fertility monitor only works if you have regular cycles, if yo don't then this is your problem and why you are getting constant high readings. I went to see my doctor who told me that the monitor was a waste of money and my best bet was to use opk's so we are currently using the clearblue digital ovulation tests. fingers crossed for you and lots of sticky baby dust x

  4. QUESTION:
    Do any other OPK strips work in the Clearblue Easy Digital Ovulation kit?
    I hate that I have to spend so much $$ on the CBE Digital Ovulation kit that only comes w/7 strips! UGH Does anyone know if any other strips work in the CBE Digi kit?

    • ANSWER:
      I have heard--never tried it--that the sticks for the Clearblue Fertility Monitor will work in the clearblue digitalk OPKs. They cost about for a box of 30. Just be sure to insert the stick into the CB digi opk BEFORE you pee on it.

      Also, I found this, I know it doesn't really help but thought it was interesting.--

      "Now, I suspect that the Clearblue Digital OPK may use the same sticks as the Clearblue Digital Pregnancy Test, but I have not yet confirmed this. (My reasons for thinking this: the HPT patent states that the test sticks can measure LH as well as hCG. The test holders, the part that displays the result, are probably calibrated differently to give accurate results, but I see no reason why the sticks themselves couldn't be interchangeable . . . but that's just my guess, not a sure thing.) I did have one woman e-mail me and informed me that her Clearblue Digital OPK stick, used in a Clearblue Digital HPT holder, gave the correct result ("Pregnant"), but remember, this is just one anecdotal report."-- http://www.peeonastick.com/hptfaq.html

  5. QUESTION:
    Has anyone used a Persona fertility monitor when TTC?
    Are they any good? Whats the advantage of one of these (very expensive!) digital monitors + sticks over just good old fashioned pee-sticks on their own?

    And whats the difference between the Clearblue Fertility Monitor and the Persona?

    • ANSWER:
      Well the advantage is that the machine does the reading for you and u dont hae to waste time wondering wether u did it right or not,
      Secondly, it tells u a few days prior to ovulation that u might be getting ready to ovulate, while pee sticks only tell u when u ovulate, which might have already been too late to concieve( the egg emains fertile the day of and day after ovulation, while sperm remains alive for upto 5 days in the body), so u can ttc when the machine tells u u might ovulate soon.
      I have used Clear Blue and found it easy to use, the other i havent used so dont know.
      Good Luck!
