    Default OPK question

    So for those of you that use OPK's.... do you take the surge to be the first time you get equally dark lines, and ignore when they stay dark for 24 hours. Or do you take the surge from when the OPK goes faint again?

    Default OPK question

    I think the general rule is the last because your body can delay ovulation. This possibly happened to me this cycle- the jury is out. Either way I'm 7 wks lol.

    Surge to me is the time when they go equally dark lines.

    My O surge is hard to get. I get a faint pos the morning of, That same night, Strong, equal dark lines, The following morning, Faint / almost BFN. If I dont OPK at night aswell Id miss it !

    I got UTD from that surge. Seems it worked for me

    Did the surges last that long before you got pg with your last child Indigo? I'm trying to work out if it's normal to keep getting the matching lines for days, and whether anyone has got pg from a cycle like this.

    I was opking for almost a year to conceive DS2. I didnt get an positives at all (my body was recovering from depo). The month i fell pregnant i wasnt doing opks all the time, just when i remembered. I got one positive but didnt do anymore tests. We dtd every second day.

    Ive been using opks for a few months now and the opks have been dark for 3-4days every time. I get a pos at night. Im temping this month too and the opks were negative from CD10-CD14 then positive from CD15-CD18 I O'ed (according to temps) on CD18. My af arrived on CD28 (which is CD1 of a new cycle).

    I am not TTC just tracking my cycle.

    thanks good to hear that. I got a nice dark line last night at CD14 and more today, so it seems based on last month it should go faint tomorrow

    Default OPK question

    The leaflet I got with mine said to stop using them once you get a positive.
