Why do I ovulate on the same day as my first +OPK??

I have always heard you are supposed to O within 12 to 24 hours after your positive. This is my second month using OPKs and the second month that my BBT chart shows my dip on the same day as my first positive test. This month, my temperatures have been kind of low because I've started cutting calories to get in better shape for a pregnancy, but I'm not starving myself or anything. I watched my OPKs gradually get darker, throughout the day, so I know I didn't catch the tail end of a surge or anything like that.

Yeah, I don't know. I doubt it's a terrible thing because I guess I'm still ovulating.

How many days of positive do you have after?
maybe its a good thing...like your egg is SO ready to go that as soon as your surge its "Its off!!"

I'm the opposite....I have 48hrs of positive tests and THEN I ovulate (usually the same day I get the first negative)

I was always told to just stop testing after your first positive, so I don't know.
