after a positive opk. do i stop testing?

If I get a positive OPK, do I stop testing or should I test again the day after or a few hours after?  Sorry for the dumb question.  Ive done OPKs but would just stop out of frustration and never got a positive until now.

A positive OPK is pretty exciting!  They say stop testing.  There's no real reason to keep testing (even though I did) because once you get the + that means you will "O" within 12-36 hours.  SO, bd today and make sure you also tomorrow and the next day too! Good luck!

Typically after a positive OPK, you will ovulate 12 to 72 hours after the first positive, with the average being 36.  There isn't any real need to keep going.  I often did what kelly did though..kept testing just out of curiousity..lol.  But use that first positive to go by.  Good luck, hope this is your month!

I knew I got the 36 from somewhere, LOL!!  I tested and re-tested THEN, my thoughts took a 360 turn and I figured I'd use them as HPT's (not recommended) so I saved some!

Lol, Kelly sometimes I think you and I are twins seperated at birth or something.  We think so much alike.  I read the things you do and have either done them myself, or try it after you say it.  hehe...we are sooo impatient.  Love ya girlie.
