Hi All,

I'm a little confused about when to take a HPT.

Briefly: Came off the pill June 1st, had first AF December 19th so a really really long cycle.

Since finishing AF in Dec, counted days and did OPK's. had some faint lines and they got a little darker but no positive line... I'm now CD 28...

So the question is.. do I test or do I just wait?! No positive OPK so can't count dpo, but maybe I missed the surge? I was a bit rubbish about testing and holding urine... or maybe it's another 6 month cycle?!

What would you do?

Hi Elly if i was you i would go to poundshop and buy a load of HPT sticks and just do one a week till AF... i'm sure i read on here thats what someone was told to do by their doctor

I'd be surprised if after that really long cycle that you'd settle straight into the classic 28 day cycle, I don't mean that unkindly just that's been my own experience!
Took me a long time to settle into a regular cycle and I found opks tricky.

I did find temping every morning and monitoring cervical mucus the best way to track ovulation, so then I was able to look out for my period/embrace my POAS addiction 14 days later.
Order a cheap bbt thermometer online, amazon have lots and an app like fertility friend to help track ovulation.

Thanks both, don't worry pinky - I know what you mean and I definitely think I'm in for another long cycle sad!

I will order a thermometer and some cheap HPT's and see how i get on!
