OPK DISCOVERY...

Alright Ladies...

I'm interested to find out if anyone else has noticed this information on an OPK box (instructions section).

After getting a + in the results window, "If one wants to become pregnant, the best time to have intercourse, is After 24 hrs, but Before 48hrs."

The above info is on a DollarTree brand OPK, which I have tested and know is just as good as the "priceyer" (sp?) brands.  

All the info I've read, most notably from the book..."Taking Charge of Your Fertility", says that you should bd during the "wet", which is shortly after AF. Since it's all about the timing & most of us try to make things happen shortly after the +OPK, it seems from this read, it tells you to wait 24 hrs. but make sure you get before the 48. ;o)

Comments, Questions and Discussions are all welcome. ;o)

I always used the ClearBlue Digital and the instructions there said to BD within 48 hours (if I am remembering correctly.)  I think the reason is this:  OPKs typically predict ovulation anywhere from 12-72 hours, with the average being 36-48.  Your most fertile time is just before you actually O, however the egg lives for 24 hours, so they are going with the average. I always BD'ed starting the same day I got my positive, every night for at 3 or 4 nights (covering all those bases).  It seemed to work for me.
