OPKs

So, I got my OPKs offline for a good deal. They're the sticks that you need to dip in the pee. Well, when I used them for, like, 5 or 6 days in a row, they kept coming up negative, but I went to my GYN, who did an ultrasound to look, and she said that I could inseminate the next day. I went home and took another ovulation test, and it said negative....Idk if I'm doing it wrong or what...

  • Probably because it is best to have sperm inside you as soon as the egg is released (ovulation) & the test did not detect that you ovulated yet. Go & have fun ASAP! And for at least the next 3-4 days!!

  • No. I read somewhere that it said between 10am and 8pm, but 2 is the best time.

  • It is strange that opk never came up positive but I would go with the OB advise the us will be more acurate. GL
