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!

I just happened to see this. I'm usually in the "over 40" group. But I had to comment. With my 7th, I ovulated on cd6! She's perfect. With my 8th, I think it was about cd 10, and #9 was somewhere around cd 9-11. And I was at least 40 for all three. Ovulating early must not be a huge issue.
