The ovulation kits are not completely reliable but, in combination with things like the ovulation discharge, they can give you a good idea as to when you ovulate. Even if you have sex at the time of ovulation, it does not guarantee that you will fall pregnant though. I presume you have had blood tests to check for ovulation.
