    Hi im new tothis forum and all of this having gotten married oct 2012 and just started to think about ttc now. I came off the pill at the end of dec, got my period as usual which finished on the 3rd jan. i know this will be my first proper month o work out my first cycle but if i wanted to try find out when i ovulate this month when would youbegin testing for the LH surge?
    I purchased those cheapy ovulating kits from fertility2family off ebay so have heaps!
    silly question but can you just hold the stick in flow of urine or do i need o collect in a jar?
    say, the ovulation stick thows a positive what is my window of oppurtunity and how long to wait before the poitive and getting down to business?!
    ok last few questions (sorry!) do you guys normally test just before or on the day youd expect your period?
    im one of those people whos impatient and likes to know whats happening hence the kits o erly in our ttc quest. Im 27, OH is 34 and he is desperate for kids weve been together 8 years and im still scared but feel more ready now thnks for any help and advice

    Default 27 year olds trying for bub no.1 hi!! :)

    Welcome!
    Do you know how long your cycles are at all? That will depend when you should use opks, in general you should o 14 days before ur expected period (AF). Many people try to DTD every second day from day 14 onward in their cycle but their are loads of different ways to go about it all probably best to test day of ur expected period or any time after, just my advice, these forums hold a wealth of information for u.

    As for how to use the opks it depends on which brand you have, just read the instructions a positive opk indicates u will ovulate within the next 24-36 hrs so it means get to business straight away!

    Yeah the instructions say to be in a cup of urine for 5 sec but id rather hold in the flow lol sounds a bit easier! I didnt know if itd make a difference!
    Im not sure yet of what my cycle will be as on the pill for over 10 years am thinking like 28-30 days was about what it was when i first started periods but that was sooooooooo long ago now....! For this month will do as you suggest and DTD from day14 onwards. Ive lurked around the site a bit, do you have any direction on best place to go for the initial infor, there are so many threads ive read alot but its still quite overwhelming for me!
    Does anyone else have the concern about due dates? I cant think of anything worse that the idea of having a child had a birthday close to chrismas, we have 2 people in the family who share their birthdays with xmas day and have hated it forever! Sounds odd but i reckon if it dosent happen for me soon il skip trying in march/april! But obviously a blessing is a blessing either way

    thanks hun, ill have to keep an eye out, like you said being my first month its hard to base it on anything, and having an irregular cycle makes it a little confusing !

    Try not to get too caught up in it like I did it is a gd way to monitor what's going on though and after a couple months you can see patterns etc
