Positive Ovulation Tests

So this is my first month off of hormonal birth control. Normally, it takes 3 months for me to get pregnant but we're sort of in a time crunch so we're going all out and using ovulation tests and charting.

I've had two positive ovulation tests but no EWCM. Not even close.

Are my tests wrong or is my CM just not there? I've not had a temp spike either. This is definitely making it way more confusing than it needs to be.

Re: Positive Ovulation Tests

When are you testing? They say ( I did and it worked) to test between 6 and 8 at night. I think also not to drink anything a few hours before that. When I got pg with Bruce I tested at night around 6 and tested postive. Before that I think I used morning pee and it didn't work. Good luck!

Re: Positive Ovulation Tests

Have you tried taking evening primrose oil capsules? That helped me make more CM. Its worth a shot! I got knocked up the first month I took it.
Take it from the first day of your cycle to ovulation and then stop.
HTH!!

I've been testing after my nap around 4pm. I didn't know I was supposed to test so late. Hmm, I'll try that tonight.

Someone had mentioned to me to try that but didn't know the length of time I should take it and AF showed up so it was too late for this cycle. Well if I don't get a BFP this cycle, I'll definitely give it a go next time. Thanks!

Re: Positive Ovulation Tests

I drink green tea to help with cm. It helped me get a BFP with DS. Also, your EWCM could only be around your cervix and not visible on the outside , unless you are checking inside (I do not). My OPK say I can test anywhere from 12:00 pm to 8:00PM. I test between 3 and 5 PM in the afternoon and all mine have been accurate. Good luck to you !

Re: Positive Ovulation Tests

oh, I forgot to let you know that you actually Ovulate 24-48 hours after you have LH (positive OPK) so if you have Watery or EWCM at those times then you are good to go as well. You can actually BD up to 3 days after your positive OPK and still get PG.

Re: Positive Ovulation Tests

What does the lines look like? Is the test line the exact same color OR darker then the reference line? When using opks two lines doesnt always equal a positive.

Re: Positive Ovulation Tests

The few that I was considering positive either had a line that was as dark or darker than the control line.
