  • Have NO idea since I can't see into your body. Tests are falliable. Generally speaking a woman will have her period 14 days AFTER she ovulates and the egg goes unfertilized.

  • I know I was just looking for an estimated guess if all things went like they should and I ovulated according to the OPK.

  • doesn't the pack give you instructions on estimates?

  • yeah it says you would ovulate 12-36 hours after positive. But I got a positive on both thursday and friday and then neg on sat. I am just not used to doing all of this to help concieve.

  • Go by which one is darker. If it was thursday then Friday would be 1DPO. If it was Friday then Saturday would be 1DPO. So your about 3-4 DPO.

  • I agree with Rosiecheeks. Just remember, that if the tests aren't correct, then if is really hard to know.....have you been using these each month and are you charting your other fertility signs to see if other things help you detect when you are about to ovulate and that you have, in deed ovulated? For ex., your cervical mucus (creamy, watery or eggwhite can be considered fertile and you should be BDing on the days you see this) and your temp. It stays relatively the same, then after ovulating, it will spike and stay up there for at least 3 consecutive days.
