Hey,

Well, I would immediately.  I would keep it up about every other day at least :).  Its so hard to pinpoint precisely.

If you have been tracking your periods thus far, count the amount of days in between them.  Get the average of those and substrack 14 from that number.  That the cycle day you should ovulate, so you should ensure to baby dance at least several times the week prior :P

When are you taking the tests? I found out I was taking them to early. I get my surge in the evening around 6 or so.

I would try taking them around 11 and then again around 6. That is what I did.

Get the book "Taking charge of your fertility"

IT should help you figure your body out so you can figure it out.

If you don't know your average cycle length, I'd suggest just having sex every other day if your are trying to get pregnant, while you figure out how "you" work.
