Ovulation!

Postby Tiffy43 » Sun May 07, 2017 4:31 pm

Plse help ladies. Iam using Opk's. My cycle was 4/21-4/26. Ovulation window was 4/30-5/5. Doubled chk with ovulation calculator said 5/2-5/7. In any case started testing on 5/1 negatives all the way up to 5/6. Opk gave 2 lines but not darker than control. Started having left side pains no ewcm..late night 5/5 we dtd. 5/6 afternoon was darkest line but still ligter than control.5/7 still line but lighter again afternoon. Just tested again 5/7 evening line still there lighter than control but alot of discomfort only on left side...am I ovulating. Will I ovulate after lines completely gone? What is going on?

Hi, a positive opk is when the test line is as dark or darker than the control line. Some women (including myself) see the test line get progressively darker leading up to ovulation so that's probably what you are seeing. The only way to know for sure exactly when you've ovulated is to be temping but if you are getting darker test lines on your opks and feeling the abdominal discomfort I'd say you are close so make sure to bd. Sperm can live for 3-5 days so even if you are still a day or two away from ovulating sex now will still help your chances. Good luck!

First thank you so much for the response. Thats the issue the line is getting lighter! Left side so sensitive when I press down it hurts.

Ok so as of today I got a solid line on the OPK! So tho my lines were not darker than control line...I believe the darker one was my LH surge. My ovulation pains and cramps gave subsided as well...Good thing we dtd to make sure..praying for positive pregnancy test soon!

Hi there, I think some women never get a really dark line so I would just go with the darkest line you get, if you get ovulation pain within 36 hours it sounds good, Good luck!!
