Is it possible to O on the same day that you get a positive OPK?
I got a positive Sunday morning and another even darker positive later that afternoon. I am just confused because now both FF and TCOYF are telling me that I oed on Sunday. However, I have had a couple temps drop below the coverline since then. Is that something to be concerned about?
When I was using them, I usually got a day or two, maybe three of positives and O'd sometime during that. Technically, it is possible to O the day of since O usually occurs 12-36 hours after the positive. SO let's say you tested positive at 10 am, you could be ovulating by 10pm that night.

Also, even though FF and Ovusoft assign an ovulation day - this doesn't mean it's really the *exact* day you ovulated. It's an estimate that comes with a small margin of error, so don't get too hung up on the *exact* day or individual temps.
Since you still had wet CM on CD16, I disagree with FF's ovulation day. Ovulation occurs closest to the last day with wet/slippery CM. Temps can begin to rise just before ovulation or even a few days after, so the CM pattern is the more accurate point of reference.
No I didn't test out of the positive. I probably should have though.
I guess I'll just have to give it a watch over the next few days and see how my temps do. Thanks, Shawna, I keep telling myself that. hahaha. It helps me not obsess too much over every single little fluctuation.
You got to trust yourself more than their software, your computer can't be smarter than its user, it's not possible, so if you know something and it disagrees, ignore it, or figure out why it thinks what it does at least.
