    Default OPK Advice

    Okay i am a OPK newbie despite trying for baby #4 i didnt use them with the others. I have ordered a bulk lot of Internet cheapies off ebay but i have no idea how long to dip them for etc.
    Is there a best time of day to do an OPK?
    Can IC be trusted to give reliable readings?
    Any other tips would be greatly appreciated
    should i start on a certain CD?

    Hi SH, the biggest tip I can give is to set a frequent routine for testing and label and keep each test. You really need at least 2 a day to see the pattern of your cycle. If you just test randomly and it's almost positive you don't really know if you have just ovulated or about to ovulate. Set your phone to alarm at say 7am and 7pm each day from about 4 days before you think you would be ovulating. It's different for everyone but roughly 14 days from the end of your cycle. So if your cycle is 34 days long you would ovulate around day 19/20. Good luck

    Thanks Bel,

    The problem i have is i have no idea when i will ovulate as i have no idea how long this cycle will be as its my first after being on the pill for nearly 5yrs continuously (no pill 'periods' skipped them all).
    So am feeling very unsure and out of my depth here.

    Then probably start the day after your first period ends until you have a clearer idea of your cycle :-)
