Will I ovulate soon? Advice from any OPK experts

Hi ladies, can any OPK experts give me their opinion on my OPK tests? My cycles are quite long (AV 44 days) and irregular, so it's difficult to predict when I'll ovulate. It's my first cycle to TTC#1, so I'm quite new to this. I'm not sure whether my Friday or Sunday tests are positive, as they're fainter than the other line, but they do have a darker section to the left. The Saturday pic isn't great, sorry! What do you think? Thanks!

Hi there, can anyone help? My Fertility Friend app says that I ovulated on Friday, but I'm not sure as my temperature hasn't seen a big dip. What do you think?

I can't answer your question, but hopefully useful advice in that I'd suggest you do at least 2 opk per day, one late morning and another early evening. When you see a line that is nearly but not as dark as the control line there's no way of knowing if it's your surge in the way up (about to ovulate) or on the way (you have already ovulated).

That should have read 'on the way up... or on the way down'.

Opks are unreliable, even if you do get a strong line it doesn't mean you've ovulated.

Looking at your chart I would say there's a good chance you have already ovulated but it's difficult to pinpoint when because of the open circles.

You don't need to see a big dip on the day of ovulation either, not everyone sees one.

I'm afraid you're just going to have to wait to see what your temps do over the next few days, if they stay up then you've probably ovulated, but you still won't know when or be able to predict when af will be due. Use the cross hair as a guide and if af doesn't show by 16 dpo then poas.

I can sympathise with you as I'm in a similar position to you atm!
