When you get a +opk, when is ovulation?

I don't chart as I have PCOS and it's too unreliable but I have a bunch of opks I take on occasion. We're recently TTC this cycle. Long story short, I got a positive OPK last Monday afternoon (9/3) and again Tuesday morning (9/4). I had what I thought was CM Tuesday and Wednesday but it could have just been that DH didn't use a condom in the first time in a long time.

Anyway, I'm trying to wait as long as possible before POAS. Preferebly 10-12 dpo. If my opks were positive on the 3rd and the 4th, what day would I most likely have ovulated?

So is the 5th 1dpo or the 6th? (I think I need to re-read TCOYF )

If you definitely dont want to test earlier then that, count the 6th as 1dpo.

Hard to say. OPKs are often mistaken in women with PCOS.

I tried "charting" my cycle by taking opks every day for several weeks. I know they are often light to almost positive. These 2 were very positive. Also, my cycles average 6 weeks long, and I took these opks at 4 wks and 2 days into my cycle. So, I'm fairly confident it was a real positive. Despite having PCOS, I've been able to get 4 healthy kiddos.
