SO it's cycle day 20 (or21?) and still no positive opk..yesterday and a few days ago I had a definite line but it wasn't darker which the instructions say is a negative...but hopefully that means it's on the way to positive?
My cm still seems to be watery/creamy/and possibly egg white but its been that way for a while..
CP is soft-ish and high-ish and I think open but not sure.
This all sounds positive BUT it's been like this for dayssss and some symptoms for a week or longer...
And temps are up and down all in the 95-96 range

So I'm just waiting....and waiting...

Do these drawn out and not very clear signs happen to yall or is there usually a clear and definite approach and ovulation?
So frustrating to not know what in the world is going on with my body!

Hope everyone has a great Monday!

idk if the picture worked but here is the web address that is an opk from this morning...thoughts?/

Hi, I can't remember if you have recently come off bcp or not sorry. If so, then yes its normal for your body to take some time adjusting and regulating. How often are you taking the OPKs? It could be that you've missed your surge if you're only testing once per day. If you're still having watery or egg wjite cm ypu probably haven't Od yet so keep at the BDing and the charting and

Sounds like O could still be on the way! For me there has not really been a "clear path to O" and I often have fertile CM after O. It can take some time to notice your body's trends and some time for your body to get used to being off birth control. Are you charting using fertility friend or some other online system?

Best of luck to you!!!

I hope you get a positive OPK soon, I know it's frustrating esp when your on CD21 you think you would get one by now. But if you just came off of BC it can take your body awhile to adjust.

That photo does look good, almost positive but not quite. Sounds like you're doing all the right things to help you figure it out though, just try and give it some more time

It can take awhile after IUD is removed for your cycles to regulate. It looks like your body is trying to O. Hopefully it will soon! GL and KUP!
