 The problem is that the OPKs only tell you that you are having an LH surge, not confirming an actual egg drop.  Some people will report similar cases of multiple +opks in a cycle.  Maybe meaning your body was gearing up to o earlier on but didn't actually and then actually o'd later...or maybe didn't actually o at all.  Temping is the only way to know for sure that you actually o'd


Assuming your +OPK is correct today and you are about to o, that window is 12-48 hours from the beginning of that surge.  If you haven't bd'd since last week and don't plan to bd again for 2 more days, you probably won't catch that window.  MAYBE if you o on the end of the window and you bd early early in the morning...

how long have you been using the monitor? if its been over 3 months Id say go with what the monitor says.. it takes 3 months for it to learn your body and what its doing.

The monitor I have used off and on. I got pregnant useing it (I was also useing dig to but that timr both gave me + on same days)

So the monitor knows me very well ib fact last month I got a + dig and mobitor at the same time as well but dh was gone.

Just kinda stressed with this.

I used the monitor in the past and didn't like it, I use the digitals now and decided to temp this month just to make sure im ovulating.  I think maybe you should start temping just to make sure!  Good Luck!
