Help needed!

Hi gals! So it is day 15 of my cycle here and I have never had this much EWCM in my life LOL and it's been going on since day 10.
My temp also dropped down to 96.80 this morning, it had been in the 97's (then it goes up to 98's after O) however those OPK's DON"T WORK FOR ME!!!! ARGH!!!! I have never detected a surge or maybe I am not testing enough at right times etc; (I did follow instructions). I however did not feel myself O yet.

Anyways- I have 7 free one's from Early Pregnancy Tests. com to anyone that wants me to mail it out to them.

So here is my question- anyone ever use the Clear Blue Easy Fertility monitor? Is that more sensitive?
Or shall I just rent an Ovacue? I have a fertile focus lens coming but I am not sure that's going to help if my mucous is like this next month (and I have never gotten pregnant on any day but the day I actually O so this is why it's necessary to know) . Prior to this all 3 last times I got preggo I relied only on EWCM because I only got a day of it.

I am an OPK failure and frustrated too because I can no longer pinpoint the day I actually O anymore- I also have varying LP's from 14-16 days so counting back doesn't help and my O day varies from month to month.

Ugh- day 16 here- still open cervix and loads of EWCM- temps still low. I can't take this. Cervix has never been open this long with EWCM going on this long........so frustrating.......

You will get 2 days of 'peak' readings so 'O' could be either day.

Well it said it might not be accurate w/ clomid so I assume femara too.

Okay, thanks. I was worried if I end up using femara would it still work- prob not because it's also measuring estrogen levels.

Susan, do you know if your peak day is O day or is it day before o- or does it depend upon the person?
Yikes, I need something accurate. I am sick of guesswork here.

No, it's not the smily face- it's this one;

If OPK's don't work for you a monitor is a good idea.

if that is the one with the smiley face, then that is the one that works for me. I found it easy to use, and it detected my LP surge when others did not.

hope that helps.
