How long do you ladies get a postive OPK when you ovulate? Mine has been positive for two days now, I know from history I should ovulate today. When do you think it will drop low enough to not show a postive?
I would start BD'ing as soon as i saw a positive. Some women get positive OPKs several days in a row. So you are supposed to ovulate 12-36 hours from the time you see a positive. So it would be a good idea for the spermies to be waiting for the egg when it is released. Best days to TTC are 2-3 days before you ovulate and the day of ovulation. I like to be on the safe side, so i would BD the day before, the day of, and the day after O.
So I think I may have Od earlier this week. So I went and got the preggars test kit and a few opk from dollar tree. The opk was negative....I didn't test before bc I did not have them on hand. Is there a chance I conceived. I've heard the opk stays positive if the egg was fertilized...is that true?
What i have found out from my own experience with OPK's is i usually ovulate 2 days after the day i get the positive. So, for instance, if I get a positive on a monday - i ovulate on wednesday. I have calculated this because of the fact that i typically always get my period 14 days after the 2nd day after i get the positive. (so exactly 2 weeks after that wednesday) and I've read that you are supposed to get your period exactly 14 days after you ovulate. also- i usually stop using the OPK's as soon as i get a positive so i'm not sure how long mine stays positive for.
