Ovulation questions

I have a 15 month old daughter (who I got pregnant with the very first time we started trying), and my husband and I are TTC baby #2. I have had my period for a couple of months now (since weaning from nursing for a year). My periods have been around 27-29 days apart...usually pretty heavy. This last month I spotted for a few days before starting, and my period was a lot shorter than it normally is.

So, since this is our first month actually trying & my period was strange this past month, I decided to buy a 7 day ovulation predictor kit. Well, this is the problem: I started the kit on day luck, day luck, day 13 (today) luck. So, so far, it doesn't look like I've had my LH Surge. However, according to all the online ovulation predictor calendars, today and tomorrow are my Most Fertile Days?! If that was true, then shouldn't the ovulation stick have said that the surge was happening (two dark lines, rather than one dark and one really faint)?!

Could someone ease my frustrations?

Re: Ovulation questions

I know it can be so my experience, I would just continue to take the O there any line at all next to the test will contually get darker for me as I get closer to my surge. Good luck...I'm sure you didn't miss it, maybe you will just O a little later. keep us updated.

Re: Ovulation questions

Hi Stacey, I just wanted to let you know that OPKs don't work for everyone. I have the expensive ClearPlan monitor and one month it didn't show a positive surge and sure enough AF came 14 days after I felt the ovulation pain. I've also heard on these boards that they don't work for other women too. So, I just wanted you to know.

Re: Ovulation questions

Thank you for letting me know that. Today is my 4th day using the ovulation test, and it was negative again today. Today is day 13, and I thought I would see two dark lines today, but the one is still very faint. It is really frustating and dissapointing.

I use the test the very first urination in the morning. I also dip the stick into a cup instead of peeing on it. Is that the right thing to be doing?

Re: Ovulation questions

I think OPKs are different in the sense that you need to be doing them later in the day as it takes a while for the surge to reach the urine. some people test twice a day. Once around 10.00am and again in the afternoon so that they will catch the surge. Hope this helps.
