I'm nursing my 20 month old but my cycles have been back and regular for over a year. (28 days) I use OPK's just to know when I'm ovulating or about to and I often will get positive OPK's for 2-3 days? I'm guessing my body is prob reving', but wondered why this always seems to be the case. I don't want to start charting my temp because I get to obsessive with this. We are not TTC, but using the withdrawal method.
I got a positive OPK on day 10 and lots of fertile cm on day 9, 10, and 11...it has now tried up but I'm on day 12 with a positive OPK still? I've always had normal cycles and I conceived both my girlies on the first cycle.
I don't know if you've ever looked at charts, but from the charts with OPK's that I have seen, it is very normal to get a positive OPK for several days. I've seen normal women get them 4-5 days strait. Now they may be reading the lines wrong, but that's what they report.
2-3 days of it sounds completely normal. =) Some charts will get that one positive, and they will immediately have ovulation, and many lucky women like you get more advance notice. I don't chart, but I can tell when I have a bad cycle with multiple surges. I'll get fertile signs, spot, they'll go away...fertile signs(almost EWCM), spot, they'll go away...that will go on for months. That probably looks like almost a +, almost a +, mostly a -, repeat.
