2nd Day of pos OPK stronger than the first

Postby KateOfOTown » Wed Feb 15, 2017 4:22 pm

Hi ladies, I tried to search in other postings for an answer, but there wasn't really anything that answered me.

So I started testing last Sunday on cd 9, and got stark white opks until I got a positive on Thursday, CD 14. It was just slightly darker than the control. I wasn't able to bd until Friday evening because of work commitments. I tested Friday and Saturday mornings with smu and got immediate, blazing positives. I was out of opks at that point so I didn't test on Sunday.

I know that ovulation usually happens about 36 hours after your first positive, but my second positive was a more "positive" positve.... So should I consider Thursday or Friday the start of my Lh surge? I'm so worried I was too late with the bd this cycle

I just had this same thing happen to me!

I got an almost positive on CD 11 at 10pm. Then I tested the next day(CD 12) and it was positive at 2pm (same color as the control) then I tested again at 8pm and it beat the control. The next day I tested again and it was neg. So I counted the one in the evening as my positive.

I think your timing is still good. It's always a good idea to BD 2-3 days after your positive too!! Good luck!!

You count your first positive as the start. Technically you don't need to continue to test after you receive a positive but I always do. Like the pp said, your timing still looks okay though as you usually ovulate 36 hours after plus the egg lives for about 12 hours.
