    Morning Shelby
    I am CD9, and in the boring part of my cycle. I will start my OPKs tomorrow, then later next week my husband is officially on "duty".
    Good luck, and try not to "symptom spot"...no good can come of it!

From what I understand if the surge is present I will ovulate within 24-36 hours - does that sound right? We are trying to be relaxed about it but realise that time is not really our friend due to our ages so need to be somewhat proactive as well. I have been charting my cycle for the last 7 months and have a 31 day cycle. We regularly dtd during ovulation this month and while I am not trying to get my hopes up am counting down the days till I can test......
    Yes, that is correct. OPKs should be done later in the day (unlike pregnancy tests), and are considered positive if the test line is as dark or darker than the control line. OPKs detect your LH surge, which in turn triggers ovulation. Once the OPK becomes positive, you should ovulate 24-36 hours later, as you said. The ovum typically lasts 12 hours. Hence, the general advice is to have sex for 3 consecutive nights after your first positive OPK.
    If you have a 31-day cycle, you must be ovulating around CD17. How many DPO (Days Post-Ovulation) are you now? When are you testing (please wait until at least 14 DPO!!)?
    36 is not old (I have to say that, I just turned 37!). The real drop off in fertility happens at 40, but you are correct, there is an age-related decline. However, you have a few years of grace yet!

    I never have before and I'll try not to again this cycle lol. DH is now off duty perfect timing because he is back working away this week, we Dtd the last 3 nights I hope that works with my relaxed approached this month with no opks.

    Welcome Debstar

    Choccie - might be worth getting a FRER to test just incase?

    Good luck Shelby!!

    AF is leaving the building finally, CD7 today. Had a scan the other day, good follies on my right, not so good on my left. Have to go for a BT next Monday to check for ovulation. I reckon it will be too early though.

    Anyone else thinking it might be time for a new thread? This one is getting very long, Im happy to start a new one.

    I'm happy to stay with this thread.

    Welcome Deb. You've come to a great thread. So many knowledgeable and friendly people.

    I did 2 different brand OPKs this morning. Both have a second line that is not quite as dark as control line, but it's getting there. Hopefully this afternoon's will be positive.

    Choccie, it is not unusual to have spotting for a few days prior to your period. All is well. Best wishes for this coming cycle
