Help determining when fertile days were

Postby WillowGale » Mon May 01, 2017 6:14 am

Hi Ladies, new to this forum. I'm just starting to really track, because when we conceived our daughter we only tried for one month. This time however..... is different. Anyway, I don't chart temperatures (going to start) so all I have to go on are my app (clue) and CM and how I'm feeling. I had massive ovulation pain on CD15, but my app told me I was going to ovulate on the CD18 based on previous cycles. OPK on CD15 was mostly positive looking. We didn't get a chance to BD until the 18th. Do you think, from my app, that I missed it?

Hi and welcome!!
It's hard to say, are you pretty regular in regards to your cycles? Do you have a picture on what your OPK looked like?
Don't forget that just because you get a positive OPK on one day, doesn't mean you will ovulate on that day. Unless you have a really short surge!
Most ladies ovulate 12-36 hours after the first positive OPK. If you actually O'D on the 18th like your app predicted, I'd say you still have a very good chance for conceiving. What other days did you guys BD? Sperm can live up to 5 days in the Fallopian tube too.
I highly recommend temping as you get to really pin point ovulation at that point and you get to know your body patterns more that way too.
