My partner and I are doing home insemination this month, I know when my fertile week is but it is best to do it right at the beginning of that week or wait until the middle of the week? Has anyone used the ovulation predictor tests, are they accurate?Answer Question

You're most fertile in the 2-3 days before ovulation. OPK's do work well for a lot of women, but the biggest pitfall is in interpretation; it's only positive if the test line is as dark or darker than the control line, and progressively darker test lines don't mean that a positive is imminent in the next few days. If you have the money, the easiest way to go would be one of the digital tests that tells you for sure whether you're in your peak fertile period; it takes away the guesswork and makes it much less confusing. If you're using any kind of OPK, though, you want to do the insemination the first day you get a positive; waiting until the next day should be ok, but any longer than that and you're pushing your luck.
