Well I'm no expert as this is my 1st month charting myself, but you had a huge temp drop and then it spiked which I have heard that when your temp drops, it's possibly your O day, and especially if it spikes and stays high for at least 3 days. And from what i know, yes you could get a - OPK and O that day because OPK's only predict Ovulation is going to occur within 12-36 hours. So it wouldn't be + on O day anyways.

 Actually, I don't see a spike in there at all.  I see a temp drop, but the temp for today is at the same level as the previous days.  Unless it's above the other temps for the past week, it's not a shift.

It is possible that you did Ovulate as you might not see the positive on the OPK until tomorrow due to ovulation occuring 24-48 hours after positive OPK (according to the guides). Wait to see your temp tomorrow and you did mark down that you got "watery CM" which is fertile and a good sign. Good Luck!

I agree that I don't really see a spike.  With the exception of yesterday's temperature dip, your temp today looks the same as the other days.  It does not look like you ovulated.  To answer your question, it is possible to have O'ed even with a -OPK, if, for example, you had a really short LH surge.  A temperature shift would show that.  Keep testing, keep BD'ing, and good luck!

I'd say if it stays up above your cover line for the next 72hrs you'll ovulate but from what I'm seeing I dont know for sure without all the temps. I just BD as much as i can get in and go back over the month at the end of the month. I dont use OPK's so i dont know much about them.

Hey,

I don't think you have O'd yet as your temps aren't really above your pre-O temps yet.  You should see a definite shift of temps.

Good luck!
