What time of day do you use OPKs?

Do you use OPKs in the morning or in the afternoon?  I know some of them say not to use them right away in the morning.  However, others say the best time to test is in the morning.  This last month I used the ClearBlue Digital OPK and tested in the afternoon.  I got a positive but then got a negative the next morning.  I asked my doctor about this and she said to test right away in the morning.  What are your thoughts?

Test when it works for you.  Some women can only get their positives with FMU.  Some never get them with FMU & need to test later in the day.

Sounds like testing in the afternoon works fine for you.  Your surge may have been over by the next morning.

I've always tested in the afternoon. Lately, I test 1:30/2:00 and get positives.
