Hi! Bought a bunch of cheap OPK tests off Amazon. Had a positive OPK on CD15 at 10am, and another positive later that evening. This morning on CD16 at 8am I had another positive! How will I now when I ovulate? Is it a certain number of hours before or after your first (or last) positive OPK? Did I ovulate today, or yesterday? Thanks!!

Fertility friend seems to count Ov as the day after your first positive OPK (I normally OPK but don't temp - trying both this month) but I believe it's between 12-36 hours in reality.

Hiya. My opks are usually positive for 2-4 days. The 1st and last day the test line is usually equal to the control line, and what I assume to be the peak days in the middle the test line is a lot darker than control line. Temping is the only way to know for sure when you ovulate. I usually (but not always) ovulate the day after my last positive. They say within 12-36 hours after peak. Good luck, safest thing just dtd lots... That way it won't matter too much which day you ovulate. X

I use a clearblue monitor and that measures peak/high/low - it was expensive but it's been good for me as takes out some guesswork.

So I'm always a peak for 2 days, then high which is the day I believe it happens for me as I feel it... then I go low.

So 12-36hrs for me after my first peak...

Just DTD lots smile I go nuts for it when ovulation poor DP ;) so I'm not sure why I do all this POAS as it's fairly obvious - lol

Good luck!!! I'm on 8DPO and am going insane with symptom spotting!

I had a strong positive two days in a row too and I felt a bit confused.

Me and DH had had sex 5 days before the first positive, three days before the first positive and then on the night of the first positive and got the BFP.

Good luck!!! flowers

Lol wheresthecoffee me and DP are 38, and DP and I were both shattered - was fun though ;) 8/9days in a row on more than one occasion on most days just in case... But sperm can live for five days so it's before that's the most important...

God I am such a private person in RL and here I am declaring me and partner are at it like rabbits!! <face palm>

Congratulations on your BFP writer!!!
