Ovulation prediction kits are a very popular method of detecting ovulation. One of the benefits of using an OPK (ovulation prediction kit) is that you can predict ovulation before it occurs. With basal body temperature charting you can not tell that you have ovulated until after it happens.
Testing more than once a day is the best advice I can give too. I use the Answer brand because it is the best value I have found in the stores and you get 20 sticks so you have enough to test twice a day for 2 cycles. I start testing as soon as I get more fertile cervical mucous.
Hi guys, please help. Im usually a 29 day cycle but I think Im ovulating today. My period D1 was 30th aug 2012 so I shouldn't ovulate until fri 14th sep 2012. However I did an OPK last night and no ovulation, I did another test this morn and have 2 lines of the same colour. So I have done another this afternoon and its a faint line again. Is this ovulation or just more concentrated (morning wee). Thanks for the advice.
It could be concentrated urine but depending on the brand you use they may or may not want that. When I used the answer brand, it would be darker in the morning test and lighter in the afternoon. You should also see other signs from your body like stretchy and clear cervical fluid. Good luck.
I got a + after taking an ovulation test at 1:00 this afternoon, and Im just wondering how long after getting a positive should I be having sex? I have read and saw just because you get the + doesnt mean you have ovulated but are about to, so should I have sex for the next 3 to 4 days, once a day? All of this is just confusing and overwhelming as to how long after and how many days I need to have sex?? Help :/
Im currently doing both, and must say it's a help... Im on cd20 and had a +opk on day cd18. Although I only get + in the evening, I read its kinda common for this to happen. I have BD every day for the past 2 weeks. on the down side I have not have the E discharge, which I did las month when I have not tracking it. and based on my temperature I had a low on CD18 when I had that + opk but no sharp rise after that.. I had a rise but nothing major...
I'm still waiting...
People say . Just dont think about it.. but how can you not if you have no keep charting everything.
Wish me luck.
