This was my first month temping and ff thinks I ovulated cd 13 but someone had a look at my chart and said I hadn't ovulated yet..

I think I might temp again this month and use my last four remaining clear blue stickssad

You might not have ovulated if you didn't get the fixed smiley - but, as said above, you could have just had a short LH surge and missed it. It is possible to not ovulate and still get AF on time though - I have (Day 21 test confirmed annovulation). Don't worry about it; try to see as the start of a new cycle and another chance.

I agree, you cannot trust opks completely, try to combine it with temping, I recommend ovufriend - really good charting site. Anyway, unovulatory cycles can happen to everybody, so no reason to worry

Odds are you probably did ovulate as your period turned up bang on time.

The OPK tests are not 100% reliable - if you have a short LH surge you can miss it altogether if you only test once a day. The best thing to do is use them in conjunction with other things like taking your temperature and observing your cervical mucus.

I got my af on sun just when I normally get it between 27 and 30 days it turned up cd28.

Not I need a little help here, cd12 I got a positive opk's cd 12 and then started using clear blue ones the next morning I got low kept on going til cd17 which was all flashing up til then. I stopped then as I didnt want to waste anymore cos I've been really ill. I got all my fertile signs up until cd13 and then stopped so I thought well I must have ovulated?

With it being a 28cd maybe everything was right so why was cb still flashing up til 17 I'm confused as to when or if I even ovulated at all?
