Without temps on your chart FF is just making a random guess. Me personally, I seem to vary. Some months I have O'd the day of a positive OPK and then I have O'd as late as 2 days after a positive OPK. (I had to go look back at my old charts from the last time I was charting, but I have seen that it has varied for me.)
FF says I Oed 2 days after my first +OPK this month. I don't know if that is the norm for me or not. This is my first month temping. It's fun. Keep BDing for another day or two for safe measure. Originally FF said I Oed on CD14 and two days later it change my O date to CD 16. I'm glad I didn't stop BDing. Good luck
This cycle FF first said I O'ed the same day as my OPK, but I didn't think that that sounded or looked right, and after asking a bunch of the girls here, I changed to FAM and FF said I O'ed 2 days after, on CD 19. It was my first month temping and charting though so I don't know my pattern.

I O usually the next day but I have Oed within 12 hours of the first positive and as late as 36.
This cyce I Oed 36 hours after the first positive.... and I had some bad O pains (before and during) while I was Oing.
I sometimes o the same day, sometimes the day after, sometimes two days after and I have even ovulated as late as 4 or 5 days after. I think it may be because some opks pick up LH at lower levels than others. I would give your self a 3 day window at least. I would also rely very heavily on your cm if you are not charting your temps. Continue bding until you no longer have fertile cm. Also, I agree with Teresa, I think FF is just arbitrarily going with the day after your opk. I wouldn't consider that accurate.
As for o pains. Mine are very intense so I can't miss them. They usually start about three or four days before I ovulate and sometimes early. I also have similar pains throughout my cycle but not quite as intense.
I don't really know when I O after I get my peak. I use the CBEFM so I get 2 peak days and then 1 high day after that. Usually at least 3 high days before my peak days to we dtd for at least 2 of the high days before, the peak days and the high day after the peak. Usually at least 5 days in a row.
