BTW, usually when a woman ovulates multiple eggs (naturally, not due to fertility drugs), she'll ovulate them about 12-24 hours apart, not days apart. So, ovulating multiple eggs wouldn't show up any differently on the OPK's. The OPK is measuring the hormone that makes ovulation happen, not anything with the actual ovulation itself.

That is super helpful. Mine are usually positive for at least 3 days and I was staring to second guess when I was ovulating. So just because the opk is still positive does NOT mean that you haven't yet ovulated, correct?
