    Default OPK's Need Help Please

    Hi Ladies,

    I need your help, I'm

    Long story short, DH has a back injury and as a result we are unable to BD too often, or more to the point, we are trying to time things as best we can so as not to overdo it on his back.

    I've never used OPK's before, and with my previous 2 pg's we DTD on the second day of EWCM, and whammo BFP.

    Well, the last 2 days I had EWCM, but negative OPK. So we did not DTD. Today at around 3:30pm I had a def + OPK, so I did the test again around 7:30pm and it has faded.... I have also "dried up" in the ewcm department.

    Have we missed it?? I'm not charting so I can't cross reference that way. It's too hard to chart, because I'm usually woken in the morning by a 3 year old needing the toilet, so I can't make her wait while Mummy takes her temp

    My last cycle was unusually long, and I seemed to have 2 lots of ewcm before AF last cycle, which is why I decided to try with the OPK's this cycle.

    So, my questions are...

    1. Do you DTD when you get your positive OPK?
    2. Or do you DTD until your positive OPK?
    3. Have you got a BFP when you DTD the day after ewcm dried up?

    Thanks for any help / advice / stories you can provide

    You usually ovulate the day after a pos OPK, they say the time range is 12-36 hours after the peak in lutenizing hormone (LH) which is what the OPK is detecting. EWCM is triggered by estrogen levels that rise close to ovulating, then LH hormone is released, then you ovulate.

    If you DTD yesterday and today you should still be in with a good chance!
