Hi, I took these ovulation tests this morning, would you say this is peak? Do you think I have ovulated already? Thanks

Hi life! I definitely think your One Stop test is positive smile Not sure about the other one as I'm not familiar with that brand, but looks promising. Were they taken at the same time (same urine)?

Most people ovulate 12-48 hours after a positive opk. My surge lasts nearly 24 hours and I think I ov about 12 hours after that (based on temping). So no one can tell you if you've already ovulated based on an opk taken at one time, but if you test again this evening and don't get a positive, it is safe to assume ov is imminent...

OR perhaps you surge without ovulating... which happens to some people. And then they surge again some days later and finally ovulate. The only way to confirm that you have ovulated is by temping. Opks only tell you that the hormones associated with ovulation are there (so it makes ovulation likely).

It gets kinda technical the more you find out about ttc!

It was same urine, the other test is clearblue.

I would echo what physics has said. OPKs will only say the hormone is there to suggest ovulation is about to happen but not a guarantee.

My advice would be to DTD every other day, especially around the time you get your positive OPK, and maybe start taking your bbt to confirm ovulation.

It can be more stressful doing it that way though! We put an awful amount of pressure on ourselves when we stay ttc.

Good luck with it smile
