OPK question!

This will be my first month using opk's! I started charting bbt temps last month. My cycles seem to fluctuate from month to month. My last months chart shows I O'd on cycle day 15 w/ a luteal phase of 13 days giving me a cycle length of 28 days. I was wondering when the best day to start my opk testing this month. I am currently on cycle day 5.

  • Counting form the first day of your last period you should start around day 10. If you don't get a pos then start earlier the next month but most people will get a poss between days 10 and 18.

  • I agree, CD10 is usually when people start testing. Make sure you test in the early afternoon (1-4pm), hold your urine for several hours before hand and avoid drinking for a few hours also. Good luck!

  • Both girls have given the advice I would also give to you. I am on CD 8 today and will begin testing with OPK's on CD 10 as well b/c my cycle is 28-29 days long. Good luck!
