OPK- How many times
Ok, so I read that it's best to test more than once a day (perhaps once in the morning and once in the afternoon or evening). How many times a day do you test? I got some cheap OPs, so I don't have a problem testing more than once. I'm starting to get a fade-in positive, so yesterday I tested 3 times :lostit: :giggle: . :blush: Yep. I'm addicted. How many times a day do you test?

Re: OPK- How many times

10. Should I use first morning urine (FMU) with OPK's? No. LH is synthesized early in the day, and is not metabolized into your urine until later. So, as a rule, you are more likely to catch your surge later in the day. ("They" say you should test sometime around 2-4 p.m., but I've had fine luck at 10 p.m.-midnight.) Using FMU may not be a problem for you, but if you do not detect a surge during the cycle you use FMU, try testing later during the next cycle.

Note: the Clearblue Fertility Monitor is the exception. The FM Monitor does require FMU.

So maybe 2x a day? Afternoon and evening?

I test at noon and then around 10pm. My LH surge only last a little bit so if I don't do that, I miss it!!!!

Re: OPK- How many times
I only tested once a day, that was always between 2-4pm.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 02:39 PM.
