36, already have 3 DC and would quite like one last little un...
So, yesterday I got 2 good lines on a OPK so DTD twice yesterday. We’ve been pretty active in the few days before the strong lines too. Today, the test line is more feint. What’s the vest time to be DTD? Should I not worry to much about getting busy now? Has this months ship sailed? I’m new to the OPK. Thought I’d give them a whirl this time as I’d like to get PG ASAP(body clock is ticking loudly!!)

A positive opk means ovulation will occur in the next 12 to 24 hours, I believe, and as eggs live for up to 24 hours, I would dtd today and tomorrow if I were you.

Sorry, that should say 12 to 36 hours

So, when should I start doing preg tests??

2 weeks for pregnancy tests. Unless you don't mind false negatives.

Going to be a looooong 2 weeks!! Is that the earliest anything would show up?

I just had something show up on FRER today. We’ve gone through IVF but the equivalent in a natural would be 11 days after ovulation.

Ah congratulations!!

That you ;) Let’s hope it isn’t a chemical. But yes, things can show up early.
