So I probably should of tried this before now but I just bought my first OPK...and its just a weeks worth I didnt want to spend a ton I just was wondering when should I test? I have a 30-32 day cycle and I am on CD 13..... also does it matter when I test? Does it have to be in the morning or can it be whenever?

Well, in my experience, and this is just me, i never get a normal read with FMU, only with SMU or later. I buy IC's and POAS twice a day, sometimes three hehe.

I'd say that for a 30-32 day cycle, a safe bet to start testing is CD 13. Since it is your first OPK i;d say use FMU and then SMU to compare, but only later in the cycle like CD 15-16, twice a day. Usually SMU works best for most.

Hope that helps

Also, i recommend starting to chart your temps! HUGE HELP to predict O!

for the future, if you dont want to spend a ton of money on OPKS seeing as i know many places like walgreens and duane read brands can still be upwards of 20 bucks for a month supply, you can go online, ebay or amazon and buy opks in bulk for cheap. I got 50 opks for 10 bucks!

thank you to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy

I would say around CD13 too. My doctor told me to test around 2pm because I was getting a lot positives with first morning urine. You can get cheap OPKs on amazon. I think I got like 40 plus 10 preg tests for about $13 or something like that. Hope this helps!
