Is this possible? I am pretty certain I ovulated on Saturday, unfortunately it was four days earlier than I expected and my husband was away Saturday. I had a +ve opk on Saturday but it was still +ve on Sunday afternoon when happily dh was home! 99% we were too late this month but is it possible to have a +ve opk after ovulation? Or only before? Everything I've read seems to suggest only before but as I said I'm fairly sure I'd already ovulated on the Saturday, had the cramping and the sharp pain.

Yes it is possible. An OPK can only tell you that you might ovulate, not that you will. You can experience several surges of LH (what the OPK reads) as your body gears up for ovulation but the OPK can't tell any difference between the different types of surge.

I'm almost certain that I did ovulate on the Saturday, so would the hormone have still been there on the Sunday to cause the positive opk? It was a clear blue smiley face one so there was no doubt!

What's your CM like? After OV it usually goes quite dry. I wouldn't trust just OPKs, look at all the clues you can before you stop SWI.

The LH surge only lasts a maximum of 48hrs, usually less. In theory it is possible.

Do you chart your temperatures? It's the only way, apart from a blood test, to confirm that you've actually ovulated.

Omg this is exactly the same as happened to me this weekend! Pretty sure I ov'd on Friday and then my temp rose on Sat morning which seemed to confirm it...........but.........then I had a positive cb OPK on Saturday and on Sunday morning with FMU and hadn't had one on the Friday morning!!!

Was sure I had already ov'd by the Sat but DTD Sat and Sunday anyway! Then today my temp fell again slightly so god knows what's happening confused

Most cm was on Saturday but still there yesterday, although less so. Gone today.
I am hoping against hope that we didn't miss our chance because dh is away pretty much from now until January, only here the odd day or weekend.

I don't think I am pregnant though, when I had ds I knew immediately, don't know how but I just did and I don't feel like that now!

I think you OVed on Sunday. I think you're in with a good chance smile

Thank you right I was so cross that I was early, dh is around this week when i was expecting to ovulate. Usually I am 28 days exactly, 14 and then 14, trust ovulation to be early this month!

Hey guys, I need some advice:

I’m on my first full cycle after MMC. I really want to conceive again but not sure what my body is doing.

I had my period, heavy and short and then started peeing on OPKs at CD11. I do think I may have had ovulation twinges 2 days before this. Have I missed it and ovulated early or is there a mini surge on CD13. I think I’ve missed it or not ovulated 🤦🏼‍♀️ I can’t now try again until July as hubby is away in June 🙁
