OPK question

This is my first time really using OPKs, and I'm using wondfo OPKs and have tested at 10 am and 9 pm since cycle day 10 (my cycles are usually 26 days long and I ovulate I think on day 13). I'm currently cycle day 12 and the test lines have either been non existent or super light. The control lines are fine. I've used POAS OPKs once and test lines always showed. should I be concerned?

Re: OPK question

I wouldn't be. It could be your cycle may be a little longer this month so may be a couple day later then usual. I know some women have no progression and go from nothing to a blaring + so I'd just keep testing. If you aren't when /if you are Oing you can always start temping next month so you'll know for sure. I'm gonna start temping this coming month cause while my LH surges have been up only temping will tell you if you truly O

Do you ever do them more mid-day? I know mine have shown up best at around 2-3 PM

My Mood:
Speaking from my personal experience, chances are you have not O'd. My opks are stark white until a day or two before my positive. Opks aren't an exact science either. I have also learned to count an *almost* positive as positive due to a quick surge. Any fertile cm?

I track cm and temped for a while before AF but my LO wakes up during the night, enough to disturb my sleep but not enough that I'd want to take my temp, so I figured my temps weren't accurate anyway. Tried to temp this cycle, by she jerked the thermometer out of my mouth. Raised my blood pressure which I'm sure threw off my temp so I didn't continue on. If I'm not pregnant this cycle, I'll temp next cycle.

Glad to hear about the stark whites before positives! I will begin a mid day test, thanks.
