I thought I read somewhere to OPK twice a day, once around 11am and another around 3pm but I'm starting to feel like I imagined that because now I can't find it anywhere... what do you all do???

I usually test between 11-3 and then again between 8-10 at night.

I have a short surge and use cheap tests so I generally test 3x a day. 12pm 5pm 11pm or somewhere around there.

Interesting, I never knew surges could differ in length. How do you know if you have a short one? I tested yesterday at 11am and 5pm. I was planning on doing that every day but does that mean it would be possible to miss it in between those times??

Most people don't miss it...
For me my 1st test will be somewhat dark, then the next test (same day) will be sooo close but not +) and the last test of the day will be +. Then the test the next day will not be + and it will get lighter as the day goes on.
It;s been like that for about a year now... I use amazon tests so testing an extra time isn't a big deal
