I am not yet TTC but came off the pill 3 months ago. Last month I returned to a 28 day cycle (previously it was 33 days and 31 days) so this month I took an ovulation test on CD15 and CD16. I wasn't ovulating either day.
Did I leave my run too late this month to test? I figured if you were meant to ovulate 14 days before your period I would (at the very least) get a result of low ovulation...
Any advice for a newbie?

The last half of your cycle is "generally" 14 days, however some people have a shorter or longer LP.

I think you started testing too late. I have a 28/29 day cycle and I usually start testing on day 12 and also watch the other signs, like cervical mucus quality. You can also check cervix position ( which I don't always do) on those days as you can feel your cervix getting softer and higher as ovulation approaches.

You may have left it too late.
When I first started with the OPKs, I realised that if I tested on the right day I got a positive (& peak on the digital tests), but the next day I could get a nothing - I guess the day after there's just no hcg left in the system, like it's either there or not, it doesn't dissolve away slowly.
I'd suspect (maybe?!) your high may have been day 13 if there's no trace on the OPKs?This is in my wealth of knowledge... Sample size = 1, started testing January.
... Good luck!
