Waiting to O after miscarriage on 4/15 had hcg check on 4/26 still showed a level of 28. Dh and I have decided to start trying again right away but when should I start testing with OPKs?? You cant O when you still have HCG in your blood right??

I know opk's can be unreliable at first .. I think because of the hcg. For me I ovulated 13 days after my hcg level was 38. It was a little later than usual.. but it was still close to when I would normally ovulate. I would probably if you are going to use the opk's start when you normally would.. but don't be surprised if it is a little later. Lots of luck :) I'm sorry for your loss.

You actually can ovulate with a little HCG in your system and some say it can be a stronger O, much like if you were to use an HCG trigger shot. I have read that anything 20 and below it's possible to O. I know I have ovulated after other miscarriages when I was still getting super light lines on an HPT. Monday I saw my RE who said it looked like I was about to O and my beta was 14. If it were me, I'd go ahead and start using the OPK's. :luck:
