CD8 microscope pics

More ferning than yesterday, but still partial ferning

Becoming more fern-like!

Another pic

It looks as though I'm becoming more fertile, so hopefully I'll ovulate earlier than usual! I couldn't start using the microscope until CD12 last cycle, so I don't know what the ferning test would have shown at this point in my last cycle. It's still really interesting, though  :)


  1. Oh wow, that's super cool! I've heard of the ferning technique, but I don't know anyone who does it. It's really interesting to see these pics.

    1. Thanks! It's kind of hard to get a good photo because of the light from behind the slide, but I find it interesting too. I'm not sure how much I trust the ferning test yet, because I only started using it during my last cycle and that time I had full ferning 5 days before I ovulated. After that full ferning I didn't get any ferning again, so I'm not sure if it's really accurate or not. I kind of expected ferning to continue closer to ovulation, but who knows?! :)
