  • OPK and ovulation??

    I got the darkest line Ive gotten this cycle on an OPK on Thursday the 1st December. It didnt get as dark as the control line but was still pretty dark the next day (friday) I did two more tests the first was darkish but not as dark as the day before and the second was very faint. Does this mean I ovulated on Thursday? Im a tad confused.

    You ovulate around 12-36 hrs AFTER the surge (+opk). How often do you test and what time of the day did you get a +?

      I was testing every day around 330pm to start with and as it got a bit darker I tested around 11-1130am and 330pm. Thursday I got the darkest line I tested around 11am..I didnt get to test again that afternoon cos I was driving to Brisbane but I tested the next day (Friday) around 1130am and got a dark line again (although not as dark as the first) and I tested again in the afternoon around 4pm and the line was very faint. Would that mean that I ovulated Friday then?

        Also I got EWCM on the Monday and Tuesday..so am I right in thinking that either way I have ovulated?

          Hi starflame, my understanding is that you can't really know whether you ovulated with opk, as it only detects some hormone surge which can happen whether the egg is released or not.

          I hope you have though! Did you DTD lots on those days?

            Hey starfish!!! wed been DTD from the 27th through to the 4th..So hopefully if I did O then we have a big chance of catching the egg!! How are you going with your TTC journey? I think I saw somewhere that you got your BFP is that right?

              Just because the lines go faint again, does not necessarily mean you HAVE ALREADY O'd but that the LH is not "peaking" in your system anymore. The only way to tell really is by temping, and looking for the temp dip/rise that occurs. Given you had a + on let say Friday just to be sure, you could have O'd anywhere from a few hours later that day up to 36 hrs AFTER the test.

              Hope that made sense!!

                I would say so EWCM often shows prior to O, some get it during O and even after O so again it is hard to say for sure but it def points to a good sign you are ovulating and mixed with the OPK's too.

                  Thanks for your help Hokey..this TTC business is so confusing and frustrating sometimes. My friend thinks I should just stop trying and 'it will happen' Sigh!
