  • Your kit goes by levels in your body.......and babycenter.com goes by averages. I'd trust your ovulation kit.

  • I wouldn't use either method at first. I would suggest charting, which will be the most accurate and helpful.

  • Me?? I'd go ahead and have sex again. Cover all the bases so to speak. But the OPK goes off the presence of LH(??) hormone in your body. So if the hormone was there the test would read positive for ovulating. Hence you should ovulate within 48 hours of a positive ovulation test.

  • I've come to notice when I get to that ovulation stage I get really horny & excited easily & that was before I tested with the ovulation kit

  • when I get to that ovulation stage I get really horny Yeah that happens. In the animal world we call it going into heat. LOL. We start having sex a few days before I think i ovulate and keep going for at least ten more out. That way we are sure to get it covered.
