Hello! My husband and I are trying to conceive our first child and after months of it not happening while TTC (plus years of NTNP) we finally got an ovulation test. I have a question though, it says to start testing the day after your period, I am already a couple days past my period ending, if I start testing now can I still get correct results? I am not sure why you are supposed to start testing so early. I got Answer Ovulation Test: Daily Tracker. Thanks so much in advance!

Yes, you can start testing now, and you probably did not miss your surge yet. It advises you to start testing right after your period because some women's cycles are short, and they ovulate very early. Since you don't necessarily know when you ovulate yet, just testing every day of your cycle after AF will be the best way to make sure you don't miss your surge.

As I said, I'm sure you're just fine and haven't missed anything yet. I would just start testing now. If you find your surge but are still unsuccessful in conceiving this cycle, you will have a better idea of when you should start testing next cycle. (But hopefully, this will be your BFP cycle!)

For a lot more detail on OPKs, I suggest this website. It's very helpful.

Good luck, and keep us posted!

Thank you so much, I know my cycles are usually on the longer side, usually around 34 to 35 days, so I definitely hope I didn't ovulate yet! I am definitely hoping this is our month! Good luck to you too!!!

You may also want to test twice a day until you find when you get your surge (for many women it's a small window). Do not test with your first morning urine; I believe you should test between 10 am and 8 pm and try not to drink for a couple hours prior to testing. Once you figure out when you O you shouldn't have to start testing so early but remember you can O on a different day every month. Good luck!
