Absolutely! Come find me on this buddy thread: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=245023

I just started it this last week so we're still all getting to know each other! There are 9 pages of chit chat if you want to catch up, or just jump in and get to know people as you go. ;)

How did I miss it taking three to four test a day so I guess maybe yesterday I O'd since the LH has just about disappeared. Should I still test OPKs since I never got a dark positive??

Do you mean continue next cycle, or test the rest of this cycle? I guess either way I'd say yes.

For this cycle, these would be my best guesses of what's going on:
1. You are having an anovulatory cycle. If this is the case, it would be good to keep using opks to be sure you don't miss a really late ovulation and then take that info to your doctor.
2. For some reason, whatever it may be, you're going to ovulate super late. Then you want to keep taking them to make sure you see it when it happens.
3. You missed it. I really don't know how, testing that often, but I suppose it is possible!
4. There was something up with those tests and the color didn't darken like it should.
5. I have heard rumors that opks don't work for everyone. Maybe you have a "light" surge and that "almost positive" was really a positive?

As for future cycles, it's nice when multiple signs point toward ovulation and you can say with a surety that you know when it happened: positive opk, fertile cm, temp shift, etc. I think if I were you I would maybe try another brand next month and see if you have any luck. If you see the same results, I'd probably contact your doctor just to see what they have to say about it, but it might just be that they don't work for you and there are other signs you can watch to prepare for ovulation.

Sorry, I know that's not very conclusive, but hopefully it gives you some possibilities to consider... Also, I wouldn't jump to the worst case scenario. Of course I'm not a doctor or anything, but I'd say it's more likely opks aren't for you than you aren't ovulating, so don't panic. ;)

Yes you really have helped just giving me different things to think about. I had some other test the last time I used OPKs and they worked so maybe it is the brand. But definitely not counting out any of the things you pointed out!

Oh yeah, those look great. I'm thinking maybe that brand or batch of tests then.

Wow...looking at the tests.....you could not have missed it...the surge would have been in there at some point to catch it. I say the tests are crap. I only use FRER OPKs, and after 7 days of +s I tried a different brand and the surge was gone. HOWEVER....I usuallly O cd13-16 and because of Soy tea this month( Unbeknownst to me) it pushed my O back WAY BACK...and I think I am Oing today. 5 days after my last +OPK. So...temping does help, but hopefully you caught that egg and don't have to do it!!!!!!

Yes I got my Wondfos in yesterday AF is due tomorrow for me so we will see! I never knew soy tea could do that. Good to know for the future. I really hope we caught the egg if not. I will definitely start temping to figure it out!
