    You know, going back and rereading this I'm honestly not clear on what happened and when. Can you give me a rundown of when you had sex and when you think you ovulated (and why)? I find it very unlikely you conceived from one attempt O-5, which means you ovulated sooner or later than you think, and you may have had more than one attempt.

    Yes so I believe there were multiple times unprotected in the beginning of the month and as it got closer. I think there was a time at o-5 but o-3 is the last time we had protected sex (well pull out probably on o day but I read the chances of that are like incredibly low to get pregnant from pre). So... Iím thinking in my fertile window it was really only like one time... which I guess goes back to my question of why one attempt in fertile window for girls. I know you were encouraging me that our story sounded similar to how you conceived a couple of your boys. Thanks 🤍

    What about before O-5? And what cycle days were these?

    And yes, with two of my boys I had only one attempt with LONNNG cutoffs. My first boy we got literally the first time we had sex, I thought I was safe because I'd just gotten off my period, but nope! And my second boy, we were thinking of trying, but my husband changed his mind many days before I was due to ovulate (I wasn't paying enough attention back then to say for sure, but it had to be CD 10 or earlier, so O-4, UNLESS I ovulated early that month!)

    Yes, lots before o-5. I wasnít tracking those because I knew you couldnít conceive a week prior to ovulation so i wasnít concerned. My cycle bumped up this month though. I usually ovulate day 21. It seems to be several at 21 and then once in a while 19. This is the first month I jumped from day 23/26 to day 19 is my guess. According to 24 hours from my first opk I took that was equal to the control. The next day the app said was my peak though. Iíve always thought it was based off the first one and 24-48 hours from that... anyway Iím assuming day 19 since I never ovulated on 20. But who knows... our times unprotected were up until cd16. Several unprotected earlier in the month, i believe there was one cd14, cd16, condom cd17, and pullout on cd19. I mean it doesnít matter now bc i canít change anything i was just curious about the one attempt during the fertile window. I mean i basically did that on accident i suppose but there was plenty of unprotected sex as well.

    I should also mention, the first opk I took, I believe was a positive. I havenít done opks for a few years so I have no idea how long my surge lasts. Maybe I had a positive even before this?! Iím not sure since I took the first one as soon as they arrived and I expected it to be negative lol.

    Well, that's what I'm driving at, is that your fertile window may have been sooner. If you ovulated more on CD 15 you might have had more than one attempt without that long cutoff.

    The apps are garbage and the OPK are not reliable because you can get both false positive and false negatives.

    I think it's very unlikely you conceived from an O-5 shot. You ovulated sooner, and in that case it's entirely possible you have had more than one attempt.

    I donít think I could have ovulated that early though right? I mean I had positive opks immediately but your surge doesnít last for days and days right?! And you donít think they can accurately tell you when youíll ovulate? I know you tell people to intentionally have one attempt at a positive opk so I was just curious. I was thinking I probably conceived from o-3 and still only had ďone attemptĒ in my fertile window because we were trying to prevent as you already know... I suppose I wonít know when I ovulated until my first ultrasound. I just wish we had had more oopses during that ďfertile windowĒ vs just the one lol. I know thereís no amount of information that will change anything.... thanks for listening and trying to help me figure out what happened.

    LH surges are variable. Some have a very short burst of LH that triggers ovulation. Some have a long, slow rise that can take days before finally ovulating. Some get a positive OPK after an egg has already released. The level that LH peaks at can vary greatly, too. Some tests for LH have a low positive threshold, others have a higher threshold. Because of all the variables, they can’t really be depended upon to give you an accurate ovulation day on their own.
