Dear Sam

It is not recommended that you test every second day, but instead you should be testing each and every day from day 10 of your cycle. The reason is that the LH peak is a very short duration peak and is eliminated from the system within 24 hours. It is therefore very probable that you may be missing the LH peak in the intermittent intervals.
