Hi me and my partner have been trying for a baby for over a year now but sadly nothing has happened. I am 40 so I know my time is running out. This month bought I bought an ovulation test kit. I used it Thursday eve and the 2 lines appeared which according to the leaflet meant that I had my LH surge and ovulation was due to take place in 12-36 hours. I done the test again Friday and got the same result which does make sense. What doesnt make sense to me is that on doing the test Saturday and Sunday I got the same reading!! If ovulation was due within the 12-36 hours from testing Thursday how can it say the same on the last 2 readings? Also I done it again today out of curiosity and it read to carry on testing as my LH surge hadnt happened yet!! Arrggg do these things really work.

Hi, Sorry if this seems a silly question but where both lines of equal colour? With the Ov tests which I have done you do get two lines in the result window at any time of testing. LH is normally present but to indicate a surge the 'result' line has to be stronger in colour or as strong as the control line which also appears. I have been trying the Ov tests for a couple of months now but not had much luck as not detected a 'surge' yet although I do get a faint line but not as strong as the control line. Hope this can be of help, best of luck x

Test line was darker which the instructions state means you will ovulate in 12-36 hours. The reason I carried on testing was was just to see if the test works, in my eyes it cant otherwise I wouldnt have had 4 readings the same and the next reading stating I need to carry on testing as I havent ovulated yet.
I rang the company that make them and they are sending me another kit but I have to say I havent much faith in this make now so I have ordered some of the NHS ones off the net.
