Positive OPK and FertilityFriend

Hey ladies - I had a positive OPK strip Monday late and Tuesday mid-day.

As long as my temp is up tomorrow then fertility friend will show me as ovulating on Monday. I went ahead and just plugged in a temp for tomorrow to make FF show me as ovulating because we're going to be out of town.

My ? is this. I thought that once you had a positive OPK that you would ovulate 24 to 48 hours LATER!!!

However, FF is showing me ovulating the SAME DAY that I had a positive OPK.

WHY????


I didn't have a test line at all until Sunday and it was super super super faint - then

Monday at 2pm my line was there and almost as dark as the control line but still not as dark as the control line.

9pm on Monday positive OPK - the test line got darker than the control line
Noon on Tuesday positive OPK - again test line was darker than control line
8 pm Tuesday Negative OPK - it was definitely lighter again
2:17 a.m. Wednesday (this morning) Negative - the test line was way way lighter again than the control line


so I onlyhad right 18 hours of a positive.


Thanks ladies!

Re: Positive OPK and FertilityFriend

The average is within 24-48 hours but some women may have a much shorter window. There was a girl on another forum that only had a positive OPK for 8 hours!!! Your LH surge starts about 3-6 hourse before it hits your blood then urine....

I really suggest the www.peeonastick.com

She has a great OPK section (Q&A). It helped me alot to figure this stuff out!

HTH!!!!!!

Oh, FF will sometimes do that.....it goes by temp mainly....sometimes I don't agree with it.

What were your temps for the past 3 days?

there is a link to my chart - I plugged in a temp for tomorrow just to make FF show ovulation because we're headed out of town in about an hour for the weekend.
