Does a positive OPK every month around the usual time generally mean I'm ovulating?

Hi all - wondering if you can help me with this. I've been TTC for the past year or so. My periods are usually regular (sometimes early or late by one or two days) and I use digital OPK sticks every month, which always show a positive result around the time I should be ovulating (around two weeks after the start of my period.

Is the fact that I have a regular positive OPK around the time I should be ovulating a strong indicator that I am in fact ovulating? I have read that you can have an LH surge without ovulating, but what are the chances that you get a surge without ovulating every month around the same time?

Thanks so much for your time!

Generally, yes. Lh surged without leading to ov is most common when first coming off hormonal contraception or when you have an underlying condition like pcos. Generally positive opk + regular cycle is a really good indication you're ovulating regularly.

Yes what @physicskate said is right but if you do your bbt (taking temp every morning) that will show a temperature shift that only happens if you ovulate.
