  • You said "positive ovulation result." Are you talking about the Ovulation Predictor kits? If so those don't actually tell you when you ovulation. They tell you when an LH surge has occured which usually preceeds ovulation by 12-48 hours.

    The only way to know EXACTLY when you ovulate and EXACTLY when you should test. Charting teaches you how to predict ovulation, how to confirm ovulation and how long your luteal phase is. By knowing how long your luteal phase is you can know if you've gone over your LP time or not and there for know when to test.

    If you are not already charting you can get a Basal Body Temperature Thermometer for 10 dollars at your local pharmacy or wal-mart. You can learn how to chart in the book TAKING CHARGE OF YOUR FERTILITY which can be found for very cheap at

  • Well a lot of tests say they can detect pregnancy 3-5 days before your missed period so I would wait until atleast 9 days post ovulation. Most women have a 14 day luteal phase (time from ovulation to start of period) and 9 days would be 5 days before that.

  • You have to go by your own personal fertility pattern, so the average of a woman's luteal phase is just that, an average but may not be your luteal phase at all.
    Chart your basal body temps each morning (or after at least 3 solid hours of sleep), chart your cervical mucus (dry, sticky, creamy, watery (fertile) or egg white and stretchy (very fertile) ).
    By using an OPK, it will tell you that the LH surge has occurred but that ovulation is still pending (approx. 1-2 days later). Also, your temp wil usually decline approaching ovulation but once you do ovulate, your temp will climb and you can be sure that you have ovulated when the temp stays elevated for at least 3 consecutive days. Your luteal phase is the the first day of ovulation until the day before your period begins. For ex. my cycle is 29 days long but my luteal phase is actually 15 days. Hope this helps.
