Hi girls!

I have a very regular 28 day cycle. I do OPKs but I don't temp. If I don't conceive this month I will start temping next month. I got a positive OPK on CD 12 and we BD that day. Out of curiosity I took 2 more OPKs that were negative throughout the week. I read over the weekend that sometimes an OPK can read hGC before an HPT can. So, I took one yesterday around 1:00 and it was positive! Cool! Took another this morning and positive again! Cool! So if that theory is correct I should continue having positives until my test date, correct? Well, I took another just now, around 11:00am and it was negative. Huh? I've learned that your body can hear up to O but then not. So it's possible that I almost ovulated but didn't and now I'm getting ready to, which is irritating because then my DPO number, which was 7, would start all over. Also, I felt the twingy pains I feel in my ovaries each month yesterday. A lot. And painful cramping. We BD again today. But hadn't since last Wednesday bc we were out of town separately.

Can anyone give me any direction? Besides, you should be temping. If I started temping now it wouldn't matter, right? Because I didn't before, correct?

You really can't rely on OPK as an HPT and that's why they say to stop testing after you get a +OPK. Fx you get your BFP, but I would just BD every other day, and hope for the best. GL!

This. 

And oddly enough, I tested the + OPK theory the other day, and it showed up negative. Not that it's false, but it didn't work for me. 

Hopefully you get your BFP soon :D

May 29. Today is CD 20 but my first positive OPK was on CD 12, so most likely O on CD 13. If today is my positive then it would be O on CD 21.

If you are always pretty much 28 days, I would guess you are not o'ing this late in the game cuz your LP just wouldn't be long enough.  CD13 or 14 would give you a 14-15 day LP which is pretty standard.  It's probably still a little too early for any reliable pregnancy results.  Good luck!!
