    8 Day high No Peak Please help
    sarah_smith6 posted:
    I stopped birth control pills after a year and a half to start having baby. My last period with birth control pill was on Sep 24 2013. Then I didn't get my period for 3 months. My doc checked my blood and told me that I am pre- diabetic . My hemoglobin A1C was 5.8% mildly high. I started metformin 1000 for a day. I got my real period on Jan 10 2014. I got clear blue digital ovulation test. I got first flashing smiley face on day 11(Jan 20th). We tried every other day since then. I saw very light pink discharge on day 13(Jan 23rd) I guessed it is ovulation. But the test still showed my flashing smiley face no peak. It has been 8 days and I just see flashing smiley face (high fertility ). No peak so far. What does this mean? did I miss peak fertility or I didn't have ovulation this cycle? Should I continue on testing?
