home ovulation test kits??

i just bought one and it tells you when to start testing acorrding to your normal cycle well the first time i tested it said i was ovulating or getting ready to, but it had only been 5 days since my period ended (day 10 of my cycle), and (according to most things i have read you will ovulate on day 13-14 if you have a 28 day cycle (which mine is between 26-28 most months) and the test said i ovulated on day 10 of my cycle.....could i have really ovulated on day 10, about 3 to 4 days before most material suggest i should have?

has anyone else used these things? how truthful (or not) are they? what is your experience???

Re: home ovulation test kits??

Re: home ovulation test kits??

I used several ovulation predictor kits and none of them ever said that I was ovulating. I tried a couple different kinds and followed the directions exactly but they still said I wasn't ovulating. But, during that time I conceived so apparently they weren't working for me. But I have heard many people say that they have worked so I suppose it all depends.

Re: home ovulation test kits??

I used OPKs with both of my surrogacy pregnancies. I was told and found it to be true.. to test about 2pmish every day. I started to test a few month before to get an idea of how things were going. I also used another web site to help know when to test. They do work..I found that it also depends on the brand you use. I know of several who used a certain type and never worked for me. Yet the ones that I used and did work for me, didnt work for others. So i would try a few different ones and try it.

Re: home ovulation test kits??

It may take a few months for you to understand how your body ovulates. It is possible that you were ovulating so soon. Every woman is different. My dr suggested testing in the afternoon b/c most women have their earliest LH surge in the afternoon. So if you wait until morning, you may have missed valuable time. Though this is a bit more than what you were asking, I have to say that the tests worked really well for me.

You may want to observe your cervical mucus, too. It should be quite stretchy (about 1 inch between finger and thumb) and clear. This is an indicator of ovulation. It may sound yucky, but these things helped me to conceive after three years. Good luck!
