I wake up between 6a and 7a everyday. Body's natural time clock. I temp at 6a no matter what ( finally i understand temping!!). Now....im going to use OPKs this cycle and every cycle after that. Im on CD11, i tested last night, CD10, at 7p just for funsies. A 2nd line it starting to appear. So what times are the best time to take OPKs? I know your suppose to take it twice a day right? and when entering it into FF, will that mess up temping?

I never used them, but from what I understand they will just help confirm O with temping.

And from what I've read about others taking them, don't use FMU.


Other than that here's a bump and Good Luck! :)

I like to do mine like 2pm and again after dinner. It won't mess up FF. Lol nothing wrong with poas just for fun, my body is so regular i don't need opks or temping but i do it because I like seeing it in front of me, feels like control in an uncontrollable situation. Gl

I usually start cd11-12 because my norm is to ovulate from cd13-15 and I just like seeing it to confirm that it's happening! I also temp too to confirm

My RE says to only use 2nd MU. FMU can give a false neg if you metabolized LH overnight, or false positive if it concentrated to higher thannormal levels for just that 1 sample.

However I've only ever gotten a + in the afternoon.

It might waste them if you do it 7 hrs apart. I hear LH builds throughout the day so that is why PM is better. I only got a + in the morning after I was just beginning the surge in the prior evening. Same day but at night it had already faded, so it all depends on when the surge starts. My surges were about 18-24 hours long. The wondfo line gets gradually darker.
