No advice I'm afraid, just watching as I'm also going to try opks this cycle for the first time.
I will def start straight away tho as I've got a much shorter cycle than you but I hadn't even thought about when to stop..

As a general rule, most women ovulate around 14 days before their next period. When I used OPK'S I was advised to start using them on around CD 8, then stop using them once positive has changed back to negative. As you get to know your cycle you can start using them a bit later (if you're not pregnant by then!).

Oh, and ideally use them around 2pm, and don't go for a wee for as long as possible before so its more concentrated.

Ive used ones from asda, and cheapy ones off amazon where you get a pack of 20 for around £3.75. That way you can test for longer without spending loads of money! I found them very similar to the asda ones. With them both i got a few days with no second line, then a couple of days with faint lines, then the darker line. Its like a build up so you sort of know its on its way lol. If you have plenty of opk's id probably start testing around cd10 just to be on the safe side, but be preperared for maybe a week or so of negatives.
