my body is out of whack since I went off birth control. we decided to do natural family planning. I've been buying ovulation prediction kits to help me along while my body gets rid of all the chemicals from the birth control. I tested positive for ovulation just 2 days after my 5 day period was done. doesn't that sound way too soon?..I'm not actually trying to conceive but I figured this was the most fitting catagory :D

It depends on how long your cycle is. You should ovulate 11-16 days before the start of your next period. If you know when that will (or should) be, then count backwards. If not (or even if so), then the best thing to do is chart, especially basal body temp and cervical mucus. BBT is the only way to know for sure when you have, in fact, ovulated; cervical mucus and OPKs are the best ways to tell when you're going to ovulate and thus when you're the most fertile.
If you got a positive OPK on day 7 of your cycle, then it just means you'll have a relatively short cycle, about 23 days or so, assuming you actually do ovulate (it is possible to get a positive OPK and still not ovulate -- that's why charting BBT is so handy). Very possible, and doesn't mean anything's wrong.
www.fertilityfriend.com is a great resource for charting.
