When did I ovulate?

I'm TTC after CP last month. I was quite surprised on CD8 as I had plenty of EWCM & got a line on OPK (ebay cheapie). Had already BD'd the day before and also did that day.
I've carried on doing OPKs since, just in case, as I usually get the surge on CD13. Nothing, until CD13 (yesterday) when I got a line on the OPK! However no CM whatsoever. I did an OPK today and there is no line.
Do you think I ovulated on CD8/9 even though early in cycle for me? Or was it yesterday but with a lack of EWCM? Or maybe the yesterdays OPK was faulty?

It's possible that you ahve not yet ovulated.

A positive OPK means that you are experiencing a surge in lutenising hormone, but this is not necessarily and automatically followed by ovulation.

It is entirely possible to have more than one such surge in a cycle where your body gears up to ovulate and then, for whatever reason, ovulation doesn't happen. It is also possible to ovulate without having noticable ECWM.

Sorry not to be more help, but often it is only with hindsight that you can work out what you ovulated, especially if you are haviong an odd cycle. I would keep on having sex every 2-3 days throughout this cycle to be on the safe side if I were you.

I have BD'd around both positive OPK results, now this morning have a streak of blood in my CM!
So it could be down to ovulation, OR if i did ovulate last week it could be implantation, OR somthing else entirely!
Oh well, will all become clear i'm sure.
