OPK

Do they ever show a positive?! Does it matter if I got a bunch of cheap ones off Amazon? I've been testing daily in the AM, CM says fertile, OPKs differ.

Re: OPK

  • I use the cheapies from amazon and they do show up +. 

    OPKs are better without FMU sometimes. And if you are only testing in the morning, you might miss your surge. I usually test around 11am until I start getting almost  + ones. Then I start testing at least twice a day. Usually 11am and sometime around 7pm. 


    Congrats to my TTC buddy Madeline! Cheering for all the strong 3T ladies!

  • I've always got a + using Wondfo strips, I get them on Ebay and use seller a-to-z*direct 

    I test in the evenings till i get close to my usual O time, then start testing twice, before i go to work in the morning and then test around 7 or 8pm.

  • I felt like an idiot with the last batch I had because they were not showing a + for me even when I tested twice a day. I then realized that the processing time was 10 minutes, and not the 5 I was used to, and I probably pitched several + tests because of my reading fail.

  • I definitely get positives on the cheapies.  And it usually shows up within a minute or so.  OPKs are supposedly better used during the afternoon than with FMU, however, I've never had issues with FMU either.  Just keep testing.  It's possible your body is gearing up to O (hence the fertile CM) but it's just not quite happening yet.

    Are you temping?

    I suck at temping at the same time every morning, is it ok to temp not in the AM but, say 6pm everyday?

    Unless you are working nights where you sleep during the day and wake up after 3 solids hours of sleep at 6pm, that won't work. Temping with a BBT needs to be done after 3 solid hours of sleep.

  • Just started using OPKs (like 2 days ago). Last night was - (because I totally spaced on testing w/ FMU), but the line seemed pretty close to being +. This morning's was also -. I'm going to check again this evening.

    My gyno said definitely use FMU, but many of the ladies here swear by evenings/twice a day. Based on my cycle lengths, I'm around mid-cycle now or will be in the next several days, so I'm trying to get a read as best I can. CM seems fairly clear right now, so I could be gearing up also, but not quite there to get a + result.
