    Default Positive digital OPK but no ovulation

    As the title suggests I am wondering if anyone has received a positive Opk however not actually ovulated?


    This has happened to me. My 21 day blood test has confirmed.
    And now I am curious as to when I should expect AF?


    Any past experiences would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    I can't use OPKs because I'm forever getting positives. Something to do with false readings and LH surges without ovulation because of the PCOS.

    Are your AF regular at all?

    Did you have the 21 bt on cd21? Because unless you have 28 day cycles, it's not really going to be cd21 and come up with a low result

    Hi kazza,

    yes had 21 day blood test on CD21. I just went with what my FS told me.

    I had meds to hopefully make me ovulate. So there may be a chance that I did O late and that the blood test may be not picking up the progesterone?

    I actually don't have not much knowledge on this, but it is very common for this test to be flawed unless you know exactly what day you o'd. And then do the test 7 days after o'd.
    Hopefully someone else here can help a bit more

    Opks always have a second line it's just that they get darker when you ovulate. This happened to me anyway!
