    OPKs

    Tested out using OPKs in a month before TTC so that I know how to interpret them properly. Also to compare +ve OPK to prediction on a tracker and symptoms

    Following which test do I want to drop everything and DTD?

    To my mind the day 5 is a clear positive (indeed, AF started 14 days later to confirm that that was O day). Some of the others though perhaps have a faint line?

    Do the 3 attempts start after seeing a test that looks like day 5? Is once a day enough or are you supposed to test every 12 hours? Am I supposed to wake up very early one morning to take the test and DTD before my child wakes up to thwart the attempt?

    Well, just because your period started 14 days later it doesn't mean you necessarily Oed. you can have a 12-13 day LP too. Most of the time you will ovulate the day AFTER your first positive OPK. So I would definitely start having attempts the night of the first positive OPK and then have attempt that night, then 2x the next day - morning and night if at all possible. Then if you can, have attempt the following night just in case of delayed ovulation.

    I would have you test once after lunch and once before dinner. Don't test in the morning or late at night, the hormone won't be at its peak then.

    I would have the attempt the time when the test looks like Day 5 but I am wondering if you didn't test at the right time and might have gotten a positive on Day 4 if you had tested at lunchtime

    Ok, good news is that it sounds easier to start attempts in the evening anyway.

    Test 4 and 5 actually are taken at lunchtime here! I just wondered if for the real thing, the test should be taken in the morning as one of the attempts is best in the morning.

    So I would test at lunchtime, DTD that evening, then the next morning and the evening the next day, is that right?

    Thanks for your help as always
