Hello Ladies, I have a question and I am hoping you all could help me. it's in regard to ovulation. I do not temp as I have insomnia and I know that would effect getting an accurate reading. I have used off and on the Clearblue Easy Fertiity monitor for about a decade. I like it and the downside is the sticks are costly. Here's my question. On Sept 3 around 1245 ish I took a regular opk and a monitor stick( when a surge is detected the lh line on the monitor stick gets bold and blue) well I got a very positive opk and a 'peak' looking stick. I continued to test throughout the day and the lines were still very dark on both. The following morning I got a peak ( first one that cycle) still positive opk. By around 11 am that morning the opk was obviously negative and I got my second peak Wednesday. Now I read some women ovulate on the 2nd peak, but I also read women ovulate 12-36 after that first positive opk. And was wondering since I had the positive opk Monday and roughly 24 hours later it was negative is it safe to say I ovulated on Tuesday? Any input would be appreciated!! Thanks!

An OPK can turn positive even if the attempt at ovulation fails, so it really doesn't confirm whether ovulation happened or not. I don't know enough about the CBE to know how accurate it is at detecting ovulation.

You can confirm ovulation with mucus only though. Did you happen notice if you felt particularly wet or slippery recently? When did the slippery feeling stop?

I believe Tuesday evening. Because Monday I had plenty of wet cm and noticed it which is why I tested when I did. I didn't really Have much cm Tuesday afternoon

If ovulation was successful, then it likely happened Tuesday or yesterday. Nothing can tell us the *exact* day of ovulation except daily ultrasound, but the signs give us a close estimate. You're still potentially fertile until tomorrow.
