I've been testing ovulation since around Tuesday last week. The tests started light and showed a positive on Friday and then also the same Saturday, Sunday, Monday and today. Why am I testing positive for so long?

This happened to me a couple of months ago but I had a negative in between (so +ve for 2 days then -ve then 2 days +ve). Asked on here and someone said that your body can gear up for ovulation and doesn't manage so tries again. Can you track O using temping or CM? I was only using OPK's before but now I am trying to track all these things so I have a clearer idea, sometimes I think OPK's can just make you more confused!

Are you using the cheap OPK Test strips? Some people's LH surge can last a few days - others a few hours - if yours has remained peak/high for couple of days I would just say you have a long surge this month x

Yeah using cheap opk strips. I have been using the same strips for the Last 7 cycles, but this Is the only one that I have found to be this long. I only use test strips at the moment, but think I may also have to start temping, as according to the test strips I'm still showing positive today and it's making me really unsure if I'm actually even ovulating. Thank you both for your responses.
