Hi Ladies

Only been ttc for a couple of cycles and last months used boots opks got on well with them clear results and positive LH peak.
Yesterday AF made an appearance so out this month but just wondered when we should DTD in relation to a positive OPK.

Last month we DTD every other night from CD9 (4days after AF ended) including the night I got the positive OPK on Thursday then not until Sunday morning (the plan had been to DTD sat but didn’t work it due to a burst pipe slightly getting in the way!)

So my question is happy to carry on every other night until from AF ending but when Should we aim to DTD in relation to getting the positive OPK? The day I get the positive then when? Next day or would you say stick to every other day after ?

I should add the positive OPK was on CD13 and my cycles are fairly regular 27/28 days long

Every day is best just before and during ovulation, but if not do-able then every other day. Nno need to go overboard though - it's sperm quality you want, not quantity (of times DTD I mean), so multiple times a day doesn't necessarily improve your chances. Good luck!
