Wow, are you cycles generally short, too? Maybe you ovulate more than once?

Ovulating earlier than cd 11 in my opinion is not a good thing,it can mean that your egg is not mature enough to lead to a pregnancy with that being said I don’t trust digital opks,I always use cheapies and when i tested early in my cycle like before cd10 I would get very decent lines on the cheapies but not a positive,after cd10 cheapies would start to get lighter and then darker for a true positive.I have no idea what to advise you...either keep taking the digital or next cycle maybe you can get a an ultrasound scan around cd8-10 it could help you finding out if u indeed ovulate early and if your follicle is mature enough for fertilization.
Good luck!

And yes you can ovulate more than once in ur cycle but is not very comun.
I ovulated twice in one cycle from each ovaries days apart,this confirmed by an ultrasound but this was a cycle after I had some medical help.

Right I agree can't be good but last month when I went to doc she told me she thought I was O and I said that's really early and she didn't think anything of it. I'll keep testing. I go to see her again the 27th I'll update you having blood work all that.

She tested ur LH or a scan?i would push for a scan and maybe some clomid to help with ovulation or femara,these drugs will help you grow a nice big egg.

I was on provera and clomid for just two cycle bc AF was crazy irragular after my mc in Nov last year. Prior to that i was on BC 13 years. I did have a ultrasound and everything looked good he said. I changed docs. She is doing more then he ever did finally having blood test done. Plus she has my records from my old doc. Fx I get answers.

I think I ovulate more than once because I have extremely long OPK tests...
also I think I have short follicular times too...
I just try and BD 1x every 24 hrs
Good Luck!

Short Follicular Phase. If your follicular phase is less than 10 days long (in other words, if you ovulate on day 10 of your cycle or earlier), it could indicate that you released an immature egg. Immature eggs are either unable to be fertilized, or can be fertilized and have chromosomal issues. If your follicular phase becomes shorter, it could be a sign of an underlying hormone imbalance. If your reproductive hormones are out of whack, it could trigger the release of an underdeveloped egg cell. Short follicular phases can also be associated with the phenomenon of age-related ovarian decline. Since you’re born with a limited supply of egg cells, they progressively run out and die away as you approach menopause. I believe going to a clinic will make you more enlightened about this. Bio tex has the best services regarding your case.
