  • It all depends on when you first tested. Sometimes I have it for two days.

  • This month I got 3 days of positive OPK's. Usually I only get two. But the reason that you might get several days of postive OPK's is because the timing of testing. You might catch the LH surge right at the beginning and then get another postive a couple days later because you caught the end of the LH surge. I believe the LH surge can start as early as 36 hrs before ovulation.

  • I agree with all the answers. I, too, have gotten a few days of positive OPK"s as well.
