I am new and just found this forum. Me and my husband have never used anything and would like a baby. We have been married for two years and just ordered the clearblue easy monitor has anyone ever used this and does it work :oops:

Hi Steffwannababy-
I've never used the Clearblue tests but there are many other OPKs out there which usually tell you to start testing on day 11 of the cycle and when you get a positive it means you'll probably ovulate in the next day or 2. So that's when you'll want to try to do "the baby dance" for 4 days or so.
But honestly, once you've been trying for a year you might want to mention it to your OBGYN so they can start prelim tests on you and your dh. Nothing major of course, by why draw out this process longer than need be? Good luck and keep us posted. You'll find this site a great source of information, sharing, & comforting.

Yes, with the kits you should have luck knowing when to time it right. Good luck.
