When walking through infertility, defective ovulation tests can be devastating..
Reviewed in the United States on December 31, 2018
My husband and I have walked through 4 years of infertility. Long story, but I do have a diagnosis. This month I have been tracking ovulation with these tests.. feeling fully confident that because they are high tech and expensive, they MUST be the most accurate.
For those of you who haven't used them, you get a blinking smiley face for "high ovulation". Well, today is day 5 of me getting a blinking smiley face test. I have been uneasy about these tests due to having no other symptoms and the length of time I am getting the positives, so today I decided to do some research. It turns out this is a fairly common problem/ defect for these tests. So, I decided to test one of the ovulation strips in straight sink water. And guess what.... I got a positive blinking smiley face! Seeing how sink water doesn't ovulate, I am beyond upset. Frustrated. Hurt. People who have not walked through infertility cannot understand what a positive test - for ANYTHING - can do to one's heart.
Not only will I be reaching out to ClearBlue, I will be letting everyone I know to steer clear of these tests. I will never trust their accuracy again, unfortunately.
