timing after positive opk

Postby kangaroo2 » Wed Mar 29, 2017 7:49 pm

hi there! this is my first post, so please forgive me if I don't have the lingo down pat just yet :)

we have been off of BCP for 15 months but weren't actively trying/tracking, so i bought some OPKs to try this month. i tested last night using a cheap internet test and got a negative, then i tested again this morning and got a positive that i confirmed with a digital test. so i know from timing that the surge started sometime between 6ish last night and 8ish this morning. my hubby was already gone for work, so we weren't able to follow through on things (if you catch my drift) until another 12 hours later. we also hadn't had sex for at least five days beforehand for various reasons.

my question: what's my chance? i know it's ideal to have sex beforehand and afterward, but do i have a shot having only had it afterward this time? any insight is appreciated :)

Hello and welcome,your chances are pretty good.
You don't ovulate right away after getting a positive opk,it usually happens between 12-48h so keep having sex lol.
Good luck!'
